According to the official announcement, "for the new project, Cobb’s vision for the Oaks was to dig way back into their roots of gospel music. But a different kind of gospel. One that took a hard look at the early days of rock and roll, which was influenced by spiritual, or black gospel."
The album will be released by Lightning Rod Records and distributed by Thirty Tigers.
Logan Rogers, founder of Lightning Rod Records says, “Everyone has heard the Boys sing gospel, but nobody has heard it quite like this. Under Dave Cobb’s direction, they touch on unchartered territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something.”
Going back to the beginning, this December will find The Oak Ridge Boys returning to the Star Plaza Theatre for one last show. The theater will sadly be demolished to make way for new development, and as the only act to play the venue every year since its opening in 1979, it's only appropriate that they be the final act to close it out.
