Happy Birthday to one of my favorite Oak Ridge Boys, Duane Allen. Who also just happens to be The President and CEO of the group! Not a bad gig, he’s been doing it for 52 years! I’ve seen this amazing group a few times in my lifetime, most recently in 2016, they still sound awesome.
Duane is considered the President and CEO of the group. His personal hobby is the Oak Ridge Boys. He is active on social media and feels obligated to respond quickly to his fans. He also plans out how many tour days they need each year for his employees to live comfortably. They still tour roughly 150 days per year.
He was inducted in the Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame. On August 9, 2014, Allen was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. The rest of The Oak Ridge Boys— Joe Bonsall,William Lee Golden, and Richard Sterban—were also inducted as honorary members. I think it’s pretty special that ALL of the boys are able to continue to perform at such a high level. Happy Birthday Duane Allen.
