“When one of The Oak Ridge Boys walks into a room it can be exciting, but when they all walk in together, the earth shakes. The earth shook on the day that Kelly and I watched as they walked into the studio to sing on our new duet “White Christmas.” Thanks to The Mighty Oaks for being our featured guests, but more importantly thanks for being our dear friends. We would also like to thank Gus Arrendale and Springer Mountain Farms Chicken for making this single possible.” - T.G. Sheppard & Kelly Lang
“Our longtime friend and brother T.G. Sheppard called and asked if we would sing "White Christmas" with him and Kelly Lang and of course we agreed to do it. Not only do we love them both, but "White Christmas" is probably the most classic Christmas song there is! Overall, it was a great time in the studio and the final mix came out just great. We are honored to be a part of it!!!” - Joe Bonsall / The Oak Ridge Boys
