    My mother's battle with Alzheimer's ended recently.... and we too knew that this song was written for just such an occasion. There was not a dry eye in the church. God Bless the writers and the "Boys" for their excellent execution of those words!!! Love it.

    New Territory

    The Oaks, famous for their country-pop sound, head in a totally different direction with this album--bluegrass, and like everything else, they do it by THEIR rules. Granted, there are two or three blatantly bluegrass songs ("Train, Train," "Against The Grain"), but the main idea of this album is to present a totally-acoustic format to the music (an electric bass on one song is the only electric instrument on the album) and the result is extremely creative. Lyrically, this is one of the strongest albums from the ORB yet. "My Girl Friday" tells of the heartbreak of a divorced father limited to weekend visits. "Old Familiar Love" is a story of an older couple who has never lost their love for each other. "The Journey," written by tenor singer Joe Bonsall, is about a vision of heaven and the realization of redemption. The real gem of this album, however, is "Saving Grace," a touching story of a husband coming to grips with his wife suffering from Alzheimer's (I literally weeped when I heard the bridge to the song). All in all, a fresh sound and solid release from the Oaks.
