One of the most loved and best selling groups in all of country music, the Oak Ridge Boys, released their first ever live hits album Boys Night Out on April 15, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, the band has partnered with its label Cleopatra Records and digital distributor The Orchard to offer fans the opportunity to win a special VIP concert package.
The contest, dubbed “Fans Night Out,” will run for the entire month of April after which one lucky participant will be randomly selected to win 4 tickets to an Oak Ridge Boys show of his/her choice along with a $50 debit card, and, most exciting of all, an exclusive meet-and-greet with the Oaks themselves! It’s a dream come true for any ORB super fan, as well as an expression of deep gratitude from a band so well known for their generous and humble spirit!
 
Joe Bonsall, tenor vocalist for The Oak Ridge Boys, enthuses, “This whole Boys Night Out project has been geared towards the fans since the beginning. Our long time friends have asked for a kicking live album for decades and, at last, the time was right to give it to them!
We are so thankful to Cleopatra Records for jumping on the train with us and releasing Boys Night Out to the worldwide market! Fans Night Out - Hey, it makes sense!”

The band was recently featured on both Bloomberg TV as well as Fox’s Wendy Williams Show, where they were presented with a plaque from the RIAA certifying the sales of 41 million albums!
The Oak Ridge Boys also recently held another exclusive meet-and-greet for an extra special longtime fan of the band, Former President George H.W. Bush, who spent time with the group backstage after their show in Galveston, TX.

With a legacy that stretches across 6 decades, encompasses more than 40 million albums sold, it’s no wonder that The Oak Ridge Boys are a favorite of President George H.W. Bush.
2014 marks the 41st anniversary of the Oak Ridge Boys, who better to celebrate with than the 41st President of the United States?
 
Reminiscing about the first time they performed for then-VP Bush on the lawns of the White House in 1983, the Oaks’ Joe Bonsall said, “I remember he specifically asked for “Freckles” off the Saloon album, and that just blew us away. After he became president we sang for him many, many times, and we still sing for him today. In fact when he and Barbara came to see us just a few weeks ago in Galveston, Texas, we had “An American Family” ready for him. That song has always been a favorite of his.”
 
The Oak Ridge Boys are not only celebrating 41 years together, but will continue their intensive touring schedule through the end of 2014.

Here is the song list for the new album:

1. You’re The One
2. American Made
3. (I'm Settin’) Fancy Free
