OAK RIDGE BOYS DISH UP SOME ‘FANCY’ AIRTIME

SONGWRITER RECEIVES A TWO-MILLION SPINS AWARD FROM BMI

Nashville, TN – Can you name the #1 Billboard single in America for the week of September 19th, 1981?? That same song has been broadcast over 116,600 hours, or 4,861 days, or more than 13 years of continuous airplay!!!

The Answer: Fancy Free recorded and performed by The Oak Ridge Boys

“‘Fancy Free’ illustrates the magic that happens when the perfect group records the perfect song,” says BMI’s Jody Williams. “The song’s crossover appeal is underscored by its BMI Country and BMI Pop Award wins, while its cross-generation appeal is made even more clear by the fact that ‘Fancy Free’ is still in demand on airwaves all over the country.”

“The greatest songwriters in Nashville have written the Oak Ridge Boys career with master pieces. When I first heard Fancy Free, I felt it was a hit just waiting to be recorded. We loved the song so much that we titled our biggest selling album by the same name, “Fancy Free,” says Oaks lead singer Duane Allen. “Thanks to Jimbeau Hinson and Roy August for writing this great hit, and congratulations to them for more than two-million airplays on radio.”
