I believe there are blessings in store when we honor Jesus Christ and give Him the glory in all things!

“If you love country music and I mean the good kind, then you have to know The Oak Ridge Boys. Joseph S. Bonsall takes us from the beginning on how the group was formed and tells us about each of The Boys. I learned so much and no wonder they was and are still successful today.

“As I was reading I could hear them singing all their songs. I may have been born in 1973, but I was raised on The Oak Ridge Boys and all the other great artist of our time and when I read this book it took me back to my childhood. This will be one book I will telling all my family and friends who love The Oak Ridge Boys about. If you enjoy biographies and country music then this book is a must!”

"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

"I have read enough books, articles and musings of Joe Bonsall to know his style. This book surpasses all! His mastery of words paints such vivid pictures in your mind you feel like you are there with The Oak Ridge Boys. Joe's attention to detail is immense! He gives credit where credit is due, putting himself last, and always giving God the glory. If you want to get up close and personal with the Oaks, buy this book and go On The Road With The Oak Ridge Boys!"
