Oak Ridge Boys Plan Two New Dave Cobb-Produced Albums, Including a Christmas Record

The Oak Ridge Boys—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban—are getting a jump on the Christmas season by announcing an upcoming holiday record that will be released this fall.

Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), the new holiday collection follows the Oaks’ 2016 yuletide offering, Celebrate Christmas.

In addition, the Oaks revealed that they will also release a Cobb-produced album in 2020 that features a collection of classics and standards.

“The first is a new Christmas album, which will be released in time for our fall Christmas tour,” says Duane. “A few months later, we will release a classics and standards album with the attitude of singing together on the front porch.”

The Oaks first teamed with Dave for their 2009 album, The Boys Are Back. Dave also helmed the Oaks most recent project, 2018’s 17th Avenue Revival.

“Dave Cobb has the unique ability to record in a raw, honest, almost retro way that sounds fresh,” says Duane. “Part of our last album with Dave [17th Avenue Revival] was recorded around one microphone with Dave playing acoustic guitar about six feet away. He told us that he wanted us to sing ‘together,’ and listen to, and watch, each other. The result was pure magic, and we wound up recording the entire album with that same attitude.”
