(CelebrityAccess) – Country Music Hall of Fame members, Grand Ole Opry members, and five-time GRAMMY winning group, The Oak Ridge Boys announce the release of their Lightning Rod Records forthcoming project 17th Avenue Revival, produced by critically-acclaimed producer Dave Cobb on March 16. This is the group’s second project with Cobb, who produced the Oaks’ celebrated The Boys Are Back album released in 2009.

“Having been in The Oak Ridge Boys for almost 52 years,” says Duane Allen, “it can be difficult for me to imagine a place where we have not been. However, Dave Cobb had that vision, and the result is 17th Avenue Revival.”

“Old roads turned into new roads on this album,” adds Oaks’ member Joe Bonsall.

For the new project, Cobb’s vision for the group 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.

Under Cobb’s direction, they touched on uncharted territory and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something. Somewhat retro, yet new and fresh at the same time, there was no vocal stacking and very few overdubs. For two of the songs, the Boys gathered around one microphone and let the harmonies shine, just as Dave Cobb had planned initially.

“Legendary Studio A on 17th Avenue South became a special, almost spiritual place, and for a few weeks it served as a beacon of creativity,” says Allen. The result is a recording that will go down in history, for old and new fans alike.

“Dave brought music with spirit and a magical feel to the studio. It became a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual revival for The Oak Ridge Boys,” says the groups’ William Lee Golden.

17th Avenue Revival is something we believe our fans will love, adds bass singer Richard Sterban.

Paste debuts “Brand New Star,” one of the songs from the new album, which is already receiving accolades from fans at the Oaks’ shows and is available as an instant grat track when the album is downloaded on digital platforms including Amazon Music and iTunes.

In 2018, The Oak Ridge Boys embark on their Shine the Light Tour, reflecting the messages of this unique collection of songs, as well as their all-time greatest hits. New roads, time-worn pathways, harmony, friendship, inspiration, and GREAT MUSIC.
