Is it common to mistake the Statler Brothers for the Oak Ridge Boys?

No, it’s just you, Demeter. I’m teasing. A way to tell them apart — the Oaks are still touring, recording [they’ve had a mini comeback with hot Nashville producer Dave Cobb who has worked with the Highwomen, Sturgill Simpson, and Chris Stapleton], and feature all four original members. Plus there’s baritone singer William “Grizzly Adams” Lee Golden and his long white bushy beard in the Oaks.

I’m curious to learn what your other writing name / column might be…do seriously give the Elvis story consideration.
