Oak Ridge Boys :: Down Home Christmas

by

The Oak Ridge Boys combineren al meer dan vijftig jaar gospel en country. Hun muziek leek wat jaren geleden op een dood spoor beland, maar toen schoot sterproducer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton) het kwartet te hulp. Met verbluffende resultaten. Nu is er Down Home Christmas, de achtste kerstplaat. En die is, mede omdat de stemmen van de mannen door de tijd best wat aangetast zijn, ronduit ontroerend. Een paar traditionals, maar ook veel originele nummers, maken van Down Home Christmas een meer dan fijne kerst-CD.

“Down Home Christmas began much like the other seven Christmas albums we have recorded. But things changed. Most of the songs I had collected were put on the shelf, and we started looking for songs that addressed specific subjects related to Christmas,” says The Oaks’ Duane Allen. “Dave Cobb was the producer/coach/motivator for this project. He encouraged us to dig a little deeper into our souls, to capture the magic of each song. With very simple instrumentation, the four Oak Ridge Boys’ voices are out front, and in your face, with the awesome, huge sound of RCA Studio A wrapped around, but not over-powering it.”
