Oak Ridge Boys Announce 29-Day “Christmas in Tennessee” Residency at Opryland Resort

The Oak Ridge Boys—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban—are getting a jump on the Christmas season by announcing a 29-day residency at Nashville’s Opryland Resort.

The Oaks’ Christmas in Tennessee residency will run from Nov. 20 to Dec. 25. The dinner show includes a holiday meal prepared by the resort’s culinary team, followed by the Oaks and their band performing Christmas classics, new favorites and hits from their catalog. Tickets are on sale now.

“After decades of taking our big Christmas tour on the road, we are bringing it home in 2020,” said the Oaks’ Joe Bonsall. “We’re counting our blessings for this opportunity and invite you to make the journey to Nashville to experience our annual musical tribute to all things Christmas at the fabulous Opryland Hotel.”

The Oaks released their most-recent holiday album, Down Home Christmas, in October 2019. The 10-song offering, which was produced by Dave Cobb, features classics like “Silent Night” and “Amazing Grace” with new songs penned by some of Nashville’s top songwriters.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
