The Oak Ridge Boys Honored For Their Work With The American Legion
The Oak Ridge Boys, have always shown their patriotism through their musical career. I, actually had the pleasure of passing an Oak or two, in and out of the studio for one of their patriotic recordings. It's not an act for these fellas either, they walk in faith and love their country.
With a career that has earned the boys nearly every award the industry offers, including inductions into both The Country Music Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall Of Fame, they're only seeing more accolades. Duane, William Lee, Richard and Joe were honored with The Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society – recognizing their work with The American Legion. The group accepted the award on August 8 at the Nashville Salutes Gala surrounded by 25 Medal of Honor recipients.
Good job guys! Keep singing and believing the truth that exists in the heart of most America! You bring light into darkened hearts!
