CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY. – Tickets are still available for the Oak Ridge Boys' "Christmas Night Out" on Monday, Nov. 24 at 8 p.m. EST in Ransdell Chapel, 401 N. Hoskins Ave., Campbellsville.
Known for their hits such as “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue” and “American Made,” The Oak Ridge Boys group is one of the biggest names in country music. The group has scored 12 gold and three platinum albums, one double platinum album, plus one double platinum single, and had more than a dozen national Number One singles and over 30 Top Ten hits.
Bass singer Richard Sterban said, “I think our stage show is one of the reasons for our continuity. We’re still having fun doing this. We love what we do. Getting on stage and bringing our music to people is still what we live for.”
Originally “The Oak Ridge Quartet,” the band dates back to the 1940s when they began making a name for themselves in the gospel music industry. After some purists thought their music to be too edgy, The Oak Ridge Boys transitioned to country music to find even more success.
This will be the band’s second performance at Campbellsville University, with the group performing last year as part of their 40th Anniversary Tour. General admission tickets are $60, and VIP tickets are available for $125. The VIP tickets include admission to the show along with a meet and greet with the band. A Meet and Green will be held at 7 p.m.
Proceeds from the concert will go to CU’s Scholarship Fund to benefit students’ education at CU.
