Expectations were high when BlueGrass Valley Records / Mansion Entertainment released “Oh Dear Sinner” by The East Ridge Boys earlier in the year. Those expectations have been exceeded by far since the release as the radio single set a charting record for the label and the group with 5 straight months of being a Singing News Bluegrass Gospel Top 10 song.
“Oh Dear Sinner” first made its Top 10 debut in May coming in at #9, climbed to #6 in June and peaked at #2 for July and August. The song remained on the chart at #5 for the month of September, sustaining a 5 month run.
BlueGrass Valley / Mansion Record’s label manager John Mathis commented, “We’re honored to be a part of the release and proud of its success. We’re grateful to The East Ridge Boys for the privilege to partner with them, we want to thank Vonda Easley and Hey Ya’ll Media for all their promotional efforts behind the song, and most of all we want to thank radio for embracing the single like they have. The song has a great message and it has resonated with Bluegrass Gospel listener.”
The East Ridge Boys are from Lick Creek, KY and consist of group members Richie Rose, David Taylor and Fonso Fields. Their Mountain Roots and Bluegrass Music heritage runs deep and they’re fan base is growing with the success of the debut single. The release of the official lyric video for “Oh Dear Sinner” on social media has also added to the group’s following.
The follow up single, “Problems At Home”, is slated for release in August and plans for completing a full album are in the works.
