In the 1960s and into the early 1970s, the band achieved some notability in the gospel field, and even won a Grammy. By 1973, Joe Bonsall had taken over on tenor vocals and Richard Sterban on bass, thus forming the most popular and well-known lineup. After a few false starts, including a guest appearance on a low-charting Music/JohnnyCash single and a few dud releases on Creator/ColumbiaRecords, the Oaks broke through in 1977 with the Top Ten hit "Y'all Come Back Saloon". From then until the late 1980s, they would remain a constant fixture on the country charts. "Elvira" and "Bobbie Sue" netted the group a couple crossover pop hits. Golden was fired in 1987, with Steve Sanders taking his place; he returned in 1995.

Although the hits dried up in the early 1990s, the Oaks are still recording to this day.

* VocalTagTeam: Although Allen is the ''de facto'' lead singer, the band hasn't shied from releasing cuts on which the other members sing lead. (Most notably, Bonsall sings lead on "Elvira".) All four of them trade the lead vocal on "American Made", and even Sterban got to sing a couple lines on "You're the One".
