They're back!

The Oak Ridge Boys that is. The group's distinctive four-part harmonies have made them a hit since they first appeared on the music scene in 1973 as a gospel quartet. By 1977 they had crossed over to country with Y'All Come Back Saloon. A year later, Paul Simon recruited them to the pop music scene when they sang on his hit "Slip Slidin' Away."

Taking that varied background The Oak Ridge Boys just released their newest album this month, The Boys Are Back, featuring songs written by Shooter Jennings and Jamey Johnson. The best part of the new album is a cover of The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," the first-ever cover by country artists.

The Boys Are Back is very enjoyable and shows why this talented quartet has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and has experienced three decades of hits. It brings back the sounds of the group's roots. Make no mistake about it music fans, The Oak Ridge Boys are back!

The Boys Are Back is available in stores now. For more information, visit
