Nashville, TN (April 22, 2009) – The Oak Ridge Boys are scheduled to make their QVC debut Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30 PM (ET) during a special QVC Presents The Oak Ridge Boys Qsessions Live show.

Shoppers will also have the opportunity to purchase the album, which has been specially-packed with a five-track bonus CD, more than two weeks before street date. ‘The Boys Are Back’ features 12 new tracks, including songs penned by ACM Award Winner Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings and Jack White of The White Stripes.
“We are excited to debut this critically-acclaimed release on QVC,” said Paul Sizelove, Vice President of the Spring Hill Music Group. “As a household name, The Oak Ridge Boys have enjoyed consistent television successes over the years and we feel they are a natural fit for the QVC audience.”

The Dallas Morning News music critic Mario Tarradell has even stated that the new album “features a more stripped-down sound a la what Rick Rubin did with the late Johnny Cash.”
