Nashville, TN (May 24, 2021)
GRAMMY Award-winning and Country Music Hall of Fame members, The Oak Ridge Boys, set the scene for summer afternoons with the release of their new single, “Swing Down Chariot” from their upcoming new album Front Porch Singin’. The Oak Ridge Boys recorded the album with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb for their fourth collaboration, which took a different approach through his guidance. “Swing Down Chariot” is the third track to be released to fans, paving the way for the highly-anticipated June 11 release of their new album, Front Porch Singin’. Previously, the group released “Love, Light And Healing” and “Life Is Beautiful,” songs from their upcoming album that leave listeners with a feeling of sitting on a porch swing in the breeze of a midsummer’s afternoon. “Swing Down Chariot” is available to stream and download on all digital services now.
Listen to “Swing Down Chariot”:
“There’s nothing like a spiritual to bring hope, to bring optimism and solace during troubling times,” says Oak Ridge Boys’ Joe Bonsall. “Keeping with the Front Porch Singin’ attitude, we must credit producer Dave Cobb for the album direction. Cobb challenged us to come up with an old gospel song that we have known for years but never performed. When we gathered behind the microphones and gave him ‘Swing Down Chariot’ we all knew it was the one,” shares Joe Bonsall, tenor of The Oak Ridge Boys.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonights’ Rachel Smith, the four members of the iconic group talked about their incredible history in country music, the 40th Anniversary of their iconic hit “Elvira,” their memories from past ACM Awards, and their highly anticipated new album Front Porch Singin’.
