“Hey, you kids pull your damn pants up and pay attention,” Blake Shelton advised at the Country Music Association Festival last week.”This is the Oak Ridge Boys.”

The Boys joined Shelton to perform his hit “Doin’ It To Country Songs” and for their signature song, “Elvira.”

“It was the only thing that was country — Blake Shelton and the Oak Ridge Boys,” one fan said on Facebook. “… It got the Oaks (back) in front of a national TV audience and introduced them to a few million 20-something female ‘country’ (music) fans. It’s awesome,” chimed in another.

It was a busy week for the long enduring country and gospel quartet, as the Oak Ridge Boys appeared at a benefit for the Tug McGraw Foundation, on the Country Music Television Awards broadcast and at the Grand Ole Opry. It’s no surprise that they’re resting up at the well for a bit before resuming an ambitious nationwide tour.

“A few days home to recover,” the band told its Twitter followers on Sunday. “You get a Twitter break. Thanks for riding with us all week…”

Yep, the Boys are back. And they’re headed for TJ’s Corral at Carson Valley Inn for a June 25 performance. Tickets remain for the much anticipated summer-series stop at the outdoors stage in Minden, starting at $39.

Members of the Grand Ole Opry and 2015 inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Oak Ridge Boys have been warming the hearts and souls of music fans for decades. Last week, SiriusXm’s The Highway broadcast a live, rousing rendition of “Amazing Grace.”

“The Hall of Famers surprised Tim McGraw’s family with a quick show during a fundraiser for the Tug McGraw Foundation (to benefit those affected by brain-related trauma or tumors). Faith Hill personally requested a gospel tune. She got it.”

Born as a gospel band, the Oak Ridge Boys later added traditional country tunes to the sweet four-part harmonies by Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Gordon and Richard Sternban, whose unmistakable bass on the lyrics of iconic “Elivira,” (“oom poppa, mow mow”) is one of music’s most recognizable sing-alongs worldwide.

Their songs are nestled in your soul, hits such as “American Made,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God for Kids,” and “Leaving Lousiana in Broad Daylight.” So before they leave Carson Valley following a sunset performance at TJ’s Corral, don’t miss your chance to  share an evening with the Oak Ridge Boys, up-close and personal.
