In October 2015, The Oak Ridge Boys were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Made up of lead singer Duane Allen, tenor Joe Bonsall, baritone William Lee Golden, and bass Richard Sterben their four separate voices combine to create that unmistakable signature harmony referred to as the “Fifth Voice”. The Oak Ridge Boys have one of the most distinct and recognizable sounds in the music industry.
