How do you manage to keep on going after all of these years?" "Bottom line . . . we love what we do." Follow the incredible long-lasting career of the Oak Ridge Boys, the singing legend that started as the Georgia Clodhoppers. Their history is varied and amusing, from the lean years of the early '70s (including a stint at the Nugget Hotel in Vegas, with the opening act of two elephants named "Bertha" and "Teena") to the glory days of the early '80s (including the smash hit "Elvira," Grammy awards, and appearances on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson) and on to special private concerts for the president and his family. The versatile Oak Ridge Boys has been called "a Gospel quartet singing country music with a rock and roll attitude" and is as American as baseball or apple pie. The group still sings and tours, pleasing their long-time fans, and making many new fans every day.
