William Lee Golden and the Goldens
When many people were pressing the pause button during the pandemic, Golden was at his most creative, writing his biography Behind the Beard with Scot England, recording a new album with The Oak Ridge Boys, Front Porch Singin’ and recording three new albums with his family. Golden gathered his sons Rusty, Craig and Chris, his grandchildren Elizabeth, Rebekah and Elijah and friend Aaron McCune to record Country Roads: Vintage Country Classics, Old Country Church Gospel and Southern Accents: Pop & Country Rock. “I feel like these recording projects and videos with my sons will ultimately be my greatest legacy in music,” William Lee says. “I’m baring my heart and soul.”
Rockland Road is a self-contained vocal-driven melodic band with a heritage as rich and authentic as its namesake. Six members, all sharing the last name Martin; representing four generations of musical heritage; all vocalists who play twenty-three instruments between them. Rockland Road is a powerhouse of soulful vocals blended with a pure, exuberant joy worthy of the literal and figurative blood that flows through their veins making them a family. Rockland Road is a favorite secret within the industry. Band member March Martin created a piece of music in 2020 that he later played for co-writers, Grammy-winning songwriter Greg Barnhill and Stan Karcz, and it became the inspiration for this song about meeting someone that you know is “the one!” Rockland Road then recorded it and put their touches on the track with their signature soaring harmonies.
