The beloved country stars behind "Elvira" are still going strong.

By Jorie Nicole McDonald

Whether your song of choice is Elvira, American Made, or Y'all Come Back Saloon, the Oak Ridge Boys are undoubtedly some of the South's most beloved country music legends. And, even though their career as a band has been showered with awards and accolades, the singer-songwriters remain happy with the simple things in life – like satellite television and Blue Bell ice cream.

Even the most enthusiastic Oak Ridge Boys fan may not know that the musical group got its start more than 80 years ago in the 1940s. They were originally known as the Oak Ridge Quartet during WWII before the band moved to Nashville and began Friday night singing conventions at the Ryman.

Even though the Oak Ridge Boys aren't new to the industry, they still rely heavily on the love and support of their families. The band considers being members of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame to be the greatest accolades they've had the honor to receive.

Being a Southerner has many perks, but the members of the Oak Ridge Boys think sweet tea, grits, Whippoorwills, and front porches are some of the best aspects of the South. We tend to agree!
