Famed Country and Gospel band “The Oak Ridge Boys” are heading to Nashville‘s Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort for the holidays.

The group recently announced a 29-day residency at the resort for later this year, according to The Country Daily. Their dinner show, which will be called “The Oaks’ Christmas in Tennessee” will start on November 20 and go through Christmas Day.

The Christmas-theme dinner show includes a festive meal from the resort’s chefs. Once dinner is served, participants will enjoy hearing The Oak Ridge Boys singing classic Christmas tunes as well as some of their own hits, according to a news release from the band’s website.

The band’s lineup consists of Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden, Duane Allen and Richard Sterban. The much-celebrated quartet is most noted for hits like “Elvira” and “Bobbie Sue.”

“After decades of taking our big Christmas tour on the road, we are bringing it home in 2020,” Bonsall says. “We’re counting our blessings for this opportunity and invite you to make the journey to Nashville to experience our annual musical tribute to all things Christmas at the fabulous Opryland Hotel.”

The show is part of Gaylord Opryland’s annual “A Country Christmas” event.

“We’ll be singing about Santa and romance—and, as always, we will throw in some of our biggest hits,” Bonsall continues. “We’ll also be reminiscing about Christmases past. But, most importantly, we’ll be celebrating the birth of Christ. What a great way to end this crazy, upside-down year and put a positive cap on 2020.”

The Oak Ridge Boys released their most recent holiday album last year. “Down Home Christmas” features classics like “Silent Night” and “Amazing Grace.” The 10-song album has been a big seller for the quartet. The album also features collaborations with some of Nashville’s top songwriting talent.
