William Lee Golden and The Goldens keep it in the family with father William and sons Chris, Craig, and Rusty.  The Goldens have released a three album collection – “Old Country Church”, “Country Roads”, and “Southern Accents”.

The highlight of the “Golden Classics” collection is the single “If I Could Only Hear My Mother Pray” pays tribute to the boys mother Frogene and grandmother Rutha Mae…and mothers everywhere.  Both of the women can be seen in the official video for the song.

The Country and Gospel Music Halls of Fame members are also members of the Grand Ole Opry where they recently made their debut as a family and will return on October 27.

If the name William Lee Golden sounds familiar, Golden is a member of the award winning Hall of Fame group the Oak Ridge Boys.

William Lee Golden noted that “if you are fortunate to still have your mother, never take her for granted and love her every minute, because one day she won’t be here and all you will have left are the cherished memories.”

The three album collection includes 30 songs spanning a number of musical genres.  The collection came about when William Lee gathered sons Chris, Craig, and Rusty; along with grandchildren Elizabeth, Rebekah, and Elijah; and friends Aaron McCune and Ben Isaacs for a new look at some old tunes.
