"When a musical act becomes a household name, they're called 'stars.' When a musical act becomes intertwined with Americana, they're called The Oak Ridge Boys. In this wonderful book, Joe Bonsall takes readers on the bus with the 'boys' and introduces us to the men and their music—and their legacy that is forever woven into the fabric of America."
—Peter Rosenberger, president, Standing With Hope, author of Hope for the Caregiver
