The Country Music Hall of Famer and Oak Ridge Boys member is set to release three new albums with his sons.
William Lee Golden wasn’t going to let even a pandemic slow him down.
Since March of last year, the Country Music Hall of Famer and Oak Ridge Boys member has released a new album with his fellow Oaks, finished his long-awaited autobiography — and, most recently, recorded three albums with his sons Rusty, Craig, and Chris.
William Lee Golden and The Goldens, as the familial ensemble is known, will be releasing over the next few weeks Old Country Church Gospel, Country Roads: Vintage Country Classics, and Southern Accents: Pop & Country Rock, a collection that contains over 30 songs encompassing several genres.
“Music has always been a huge part of my life,” says William Lee. “When my boys were growing up, it was important for me to introduce them to music of all walks of life. Throughout the years, we’ve sung together many times, but never on an official project. Due to the world’s events of the last year and a half, we decided as a family that it was time to record 32 of our favorite songs, which then turned into three full albums of country, rock, and gospel. We are so excited for everyone to hear our version of these classic hits.”
The first single from Old Country Church Gospel, “Come and Dine,” will be available starting Friday on various platforms. So we thought it would be a good time to catch up with William Lee and The Goldens.
