The Oak Ridge Boys Perform 'Elvira' On 40th Anniversary Of It's Release - Christian Artists

The Oak Ridge Boys celebrate the 40th anniversary of ‘Elvira’ with a rousing liver performance. This hit song was originally written by Dallas Frazier in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until 1981, when the Oak Ridge Boys released their own version of the country tune, that it truly took off in mainstream music. The tune quickly climbed to the top of the Billboard charts and sold over two million units. Now, ‘Elvira’ is one of those songs that has truly cemented itself as one of the greatest of all times. “Eyes that look like heaven, lips like sherry wine That girl can sure enough make my little light shine I get a funny feelin' up and down my spine Cause I know that my Elvira's mine” The Oak Ridge Boys are known for their unique blend of country music and gospel. This iconic group consists of Duane Allen singing lead vocals, Joe Bonsall singing tenor, William Lee Golden with his baritone voice, and Richard Sterban singing deep bass. They all joined the group at different times, but this particular lineup of men have been together since 1973. Today, they are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their smash hit, ‘Elvira.’ Performed at the Rebel Ranch in Ashland City, Tennessee, just listen as these 4 men belt out the iconic lyrics that we all know and love. “So I'm singin' Elvira, elvira My heart's on fire elvira Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow” What an incredible performance from this legendary quartet!
