Oak Ridge Boys inducted into the Grand Ole Opry~

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Oak Ridge Boys were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry Saturday evening by Opry member Jimmy Dickens. The legendary country music group made up of William Lee Golden, Joe Bonsall, Richard Sterban, and Duane Allen was invited to join the Opry last month by Dickens, who surprised the group by walking on stage dressed as a 4’11” William Lee Golden, including long beard and sunglasses.

The group was surprised on stage by a video greeting from President George Bush. “I can not think of any group or any person who deserve this honor more,” President Bush said, explaining that he’d been an Oak Ridge Boys fan since he first heard the group from inside the White House while they were singing “Elvira” on the White House lawn.

Congrats guys! It’s about time.
