“To be honest after being shut down last year for about five months, with every show canceled, we cherished the thought of recording a new album,” shares Joe Bonsall. “In August 2020, during the pandemic, we joined our young producer Dave Cobb at RCA Studio A and, with just two other musicians (a bass player in a booth playing mostly stand-up bass and a percussionist in another booth), plus Dave playing guitar, along with an engineer in the control room, The Oak Ridge Boys sat six feet apart in the studio and went to work on Front Porch Singin’. There was nobody else around. The idea for the project was to sing cool songs with sparse backup. Dave wanted the voices way out front as if we were singing together on … well … a front porch.”
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight’s 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.
