The Art Of An Oak Ridge Boy
William Lee Golden of the Oak Ridge Boys celebrated his 15-piece art exhibit at historic Monthaven mansion in Hendersonville, Tenn., June 2.
During the reception, William Lee confessed that when he began painting a few years ago, he never told his singing partners about his new hobby. “I would keep my painting supplies under the bus while we toured and get it out and paint in my hotel room,” he says. “So, the guys wouldn’t know until I brought it out.” But on William Lee’s big day, fellow Oak Ridge Boys Joe Bonsall and Duane Allen were on hand to help him celebrate. “Beauty moves me just like hearing great songs,” William Lee says. “It [painting] has opened up a whole new world for me.”
