Oak Ridge Boys Inducted Into Texas Country Music Hall of Fame

Oak Ridge Boys Member Duane Allen
Inducted Into Texas Country Music Hall of Fame

Legendary Group Announced as Honorary Texans
by Governor of Lone Star State


  Carthage, TX (August 13, 2014) – Oak Ridge Boys lead singer Duane Allen has received high honors from his native Lone Star State.  The award-winning singer/songwriter/producer has been inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and named an honorary Admiral in the Texas Navy by Governor Rick Perry.  Oak Ridge Boys members Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban shared the spotlight by being proclaimed as honorary Texans.

The 17th annual celebration was held in Carthage, Texas and included a special concert by The Oak Ridge Boys along with free tours of the Hall of Fame museum which features an exhibit on Duane Allen’s extraordinary life and musical journey with the Oaks.  Texas Country Music Hall of Fame founder Tommie Ritter Smith describes the inclusion of all four Oaks members into the induction ceremony as a reflection of Allen’s heart and East Texas roots.  “He’s the one that was being inducted.  But, he wanted all of the other members to be honored right along with him.  So, The Oak Ridge Boys were proudly named honorary Texans,” she explains.

Duane Allen says, “I am still in the after-glow of a very overwhelming event in my life.  It is a huge honor, and I am humbled to the core of my soul with this induction.  My first emotional moment was when I walked into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.  Less than a few feet inside, I had to just stop and gather my feelings.  Every emotional fiber of my body was saying, ‘WOW!!!’ ”  He adds, “Then, I was walked around to my exhibit.  I had no idea what would be there.  I’d requested that it be a total surprise, and it was my wife, Norah Lee, Kathy Harris, in our office, and Jim Halsey, our manager, who supplied all of the memories for my exhibit.  Rusty Summerville organized all of the items.  I was emotionally overcome when I saw it all."

Colt Ford’s Single, “Drivin’ Around Song,” Hits Gold Mark

Colt Ford’s Single, “Drivin’ Around Song,” Hits Gold Mark


Nashville, TN, August 12, ’14…..Average Joes Entertainment is celebrating a major milestone with the announcement that Colt Ford’s single, “Drivin’ Around Song,” f/Jason Aldean, has been certified Gold by the RIAA. A significant achievement for any record label, especially one that is wholly independent, “Drivin’ Around Song" is featured on Ford’s #1 Billboard album, “Declaration Of Independence,” released in August 2012.
“So many people were instrumental in the success of this record,” commented Ford. “I want to specifically thank John Marks at The Highway for leading the way, as well as all the FM and AM stations across the country who played it, Jason Aldean for lending his brilliant vocals to the song, and Craig Wiseman, Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson for writing a big ole’ hit!”
Tony Morreale, AJE’s VP Marketing/Promotion remarked, "Colt's fans are some of the best and most loyal out there, and they've voted with their time and money, again.  Without the fans there is no certification by the RIAA."  
Most recently, Ford celebrated the release of his fifth studio album, “Thanks For Listening,” which debuted at #2 on Billboard Top Country Albums chart, #1 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart, and in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. In addition, Ford’s first album, “Ride Through The Country,” has sold an aggregate of 1 million tracks since its release six years ago.
