The Oak Ridge Boys haven’t even returned yet from this year’s Country Music Cruise, and they’re already committed for the 2016 excursion. Prior to setting sail, the Oaks’ Duane Allen said he anticipated having a great time. He told “Country Weekly” it’s “a cruise ship full of Country music fans and over a dozen Country music acts, autograph sessions, photo sessions, great food, Country music, gospel music and the Caribbean, all on one trip.” Current cruiser Wade Hayes will also return for the 2016 trek, which will also feature Kenny Rogers, Alabama’s Randy Owen, Mel Tillis, the Bellamy Brothers, and others. Next year’s cruise is scheduled to launch on January 16th, 2016. More information is available at
