William Lee Golden to Appear on Special Episode of RFD-TV’s ‘The Rural Americans’ Sunday, April 3rd at 9/8c
“I am so proud of William Lee. This 3 album set is masterful and heartfelt! Golden has always been about family and music and along with his boys they have created a musical masterpiece and besides that, I find the retro feel of the great old songs quite appealing.” – Joe Bonsall, The Oak Ridge Boys
“I’ve long been a fan of William Lee Golden and his talented sons, and these three new albums are an absolute treasure. I love that William Lee, sons Chris Rusty and Craig, and his grandson Elijah along with friend and bass singer Aaron McCune have revived some of the most potent songs in the American songbook from the stone-cold country of ‘Long Black Veil’ to Tommy Petty’s ‘Southern Accent’ to gospel classic ‘Power in the Blood.’ This is a landmark project in the Country Music Hall of Famer’s legendary career and the fact that it’s a family affair just makes it all the sweeter.” – Deborah Evans Price, Billboard
“Maybe one of the best things to come out of the pandemic shutdown was the time William Lee and his boys had to spend together. And the best thing for us is this project! What a treasure they have recorded, where each member of the family brought their own ideas, and then together as a family, they literally put memories together with music. There is something for everyone and every mood. Thank you William Lee for raising these wonderful boys who are The Goldens.” – Jeannie Seely
“A Golden moment times 3! William Lee Golden and the Goldens have given us a gift of timeless music with their one-of-a-kind family harmonies. From Gospel favorites to Pop and Country Rock and Vintage Country Classics in three full albums, through 31 songs, The Goldens have delivered a must-have collection of memories.” – Dennis Banka, WUCZ Morning Show Host
“From those warm nights singing on the porch with family to the best songs you car-sing at the top of your lungs, William Lee Golden and the Goldens have it all in their new 3 album set. It’s your new best friend for your musical journey.” – Devon O’Day, Host of Main Street Today

“A lifelong dream has finally become a reality!” shares William Lee Golden. “This 3-volume set was a true labor of love and a project that I had begun to think would never happen, but it has. Thank you to my family, friends, and everyone who has supported the Golden family over the years. I hope you enjoy “Golden Classics” as much as we enjoyed recording each album!”
As part of the excitement of the ‘Golden Classics’ release, William Lee Golden and The Goldens hosted a sold-out album release party last week at 3rd and Lindsley Bar & Grill in Nashville, Tenn. At the event sponsored by Springer Mountain Farms Chicken, the group graced the stage with performances from songs off all three new albums and was also surprised with a special plaque to commemorate the success of “Come and Dine” reaching #1 on the CDX Gospel Charts. Audience members included special guests, family, and friends including the remaining members of The Oak Ridge Boys.
The three albums, ‘Southern Accents,’ ‘Country Roads’ and ‘Old Country Church’ were recorded when Golden gathered his sons Rusty, Craig, and Chris, his grandchildren Elizabeth, Rebekah, and Elijah, and friends Aaron McCune, and Ben Isaacs to bring their fresh interpretations to longtime favorites. William Lee Golden and The Goldens deliver reminiscent renditions of Johnny Cash’s “I Still Miss Someone,” and Jim Reeves’s “Welcome to My World.” Chris shines on Tom Petty’s “Southern Accent,” while Rusty delivers a vibrant take on Bob Seger’s hit “Hollywood Nights” and Craig, the rarely heard Golden, revives Gregg Allman’s “Multi-Colored Lady.”
William Lee Golden is also set to appear on RFD-TV’s “The Rural Americans” for a special episode that dives into his upbringing and the path that led him to join The Oak Ridge Boys.
