Perhaps best known as the baritone voice of the legendary "Oak Ridge Boys," William Lee Golden's impressive talents range broadly. His music is recognized the world over. His contributions to history and Native American understanding have earned noteworthy awards and continuing appreciation. And in recent years he is making a distinctive mark in publishing and in fine art. Visible with his long beard and flowing hair, he is one of the most recognized personalities in Country and Gospel music - the renowned "Mountain Man of Music."
Music developed early in William Lee Golden. In the small town of Brewton, Alabama, this farmer's son was performing at age seven on his grandfather's weekly radio show along with his sister, Lanette. His mother, Ruth, is a recognized poet with two published volumes of inspiring poems. In 1997 William Lee was inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and presented with their "Lifework Award for Performing Achievement."
William Lee, Brenda, and son, Solomon, live in Hendersonville, Tennessee in a historic home, The "Golden Era Plantation," built in 1786. Over the years his older sons Rusty, Craig and Chris, his six grandchildren and many friends have enjoyed this "peaceful home" which Golden feels "encourages relaxation and creativity."
