The Oak Ridge Boys

The Oak Ridge Boys are one of the best-known country and gospel bands in United States. They began their career as the Oak Ridge Quartet in 1945, singing gospel music and becoming popular during the 1950s. Their name was changed to the Oak Ridge Boys in 1961, and remained a predominantly gospel-oriented group until the late 60s, when they changed their image somewhat and concentrated more on country and pop music. By the 1970s, the band's lineup had become more or less consistent: lead singer Duane Allen, tenor Joe Bonsall, baritone William Lee Golden, and bass singer Richard Sterban.

They are best known for their hit song "Elvira", from when they were performing in the 1980s.
