“There’s nothing like a spiritual to bring hope, to bring optimism and solace during troubling times,” says Oak Ridge Boys’ Joe Bonsall. “Keeping with the Front Porch Singin’ attitude, we must credit producer Dave Cobb for the album direction. Cobb challenged us to come up with an old gospel song that we have known for years but never performed. When we gathered behind the microphones and gave him ‘Swing Down Chariot’ we all knew it was the one,” shares Joe Bonsall, Tenor of The Oak Ridge Boys.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonights’ Rachel Smith, the four members of the iconic group talked about their incredible history in country music, the 40th Anniversary of their iconic hit “Elvira,” their memories from past ACM Awards, and their highly anticipated new album ‘Front Porch Singin’, from Lighting Rod Records.
