Few country music groups have had the enduring popularity, cultural significance, or crossover success of The Oak Ridge Boys, who started out in traditional country and gospel during World War II and evolved with the times to help popularize and modernize country music far beyond traditional genre and regional lines.

 

With one of the most recognizable sounds in the music industry, the four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of The Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of country hits, including the number one country-pop smash “Elvira”, earning them Grammy, Dove, Country Music Association, and Academy of Country Music awards, along with a host of other industry and fan accolades.

 

Their string of hits includes “Bobbie Sue,” “Dream On,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “I Guess It Never Hurts To Hurt Sometimes,” “Fancy Free,” “Gonna Take A Lot Of River,” and many more. In 2009, they even covered the rock duo White Stripes song, “Seven Nations Army”, and in 2011, they rerecorded a thirtieth anniversary version of “Elvira”.

 

This legendary group has scored 12 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album, a  double platinum single (“Elvira”), and have had more than a dozen national #1 singles and over 30 top ten hits.

 

The Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Event Center is just steps away from the casino gaming floor and The Landing Hotel. For more details about upcoming entertainment, and to make reservations at The Landing Hotel, please visit RiversCasino.com/Schenectady.
