They continued singing predominately gospel music until the 60s when they changed their name to The Oak Ridge Boys and started singing country. Original members since the 70s, the band consists of Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban.
“Thank God for Kids” is a great song and a wonderful reminder of the incredible innocence children stand for.
