On May 3, 2012, legendary country and gospel artist, William Lee Golden, of the Oak Ridge Boys, paused a recording session to speak to Broken Records Magazine’s Cindy Vasko about his craft. With over thirty million album sales, 150 tour dates per year, a host of Grammy awards, inductions into the Grand Ole Opry and Gospel Music Hall of Fame, an upcoming performance at the CMA Fest on June 7-10, 2012, and an Oak Ridge Boys fall 2012 release Christmas album, one would think Golden had little time for anything else.
Golden is appreciative of his many successes and said, “I love people and am so thankful to have the opportunity to sing, travel, record and I appreciate every memory, every new experience, every treasure. I am thankful for life, my family, the opportunity to sing with the Oak Ridge Boys and the opportunity to showcase my paintings. Life is good. I feel blessed and so honored.”
