NASHVILLE (July 1, 2020) — Legendary Grammy Award winning country group The Oak Ridge Boys are teaming up with Gov. Mike Huckabee to host TBN’s July 4th weekend television special, performing multiple songs and welcoming GMA Dove Award winning contemporary Christian artist Nicole C. Mullen, along with Grammy winning country music legend Lee Greenwood, whose hit song “God Bless the USA” has become an American anthem.

TBN’s Independence Weekend Celebration premieres Friday, July 3, all night back-to-back at 8, 9, 10, and 11 p.m. ET, Saturday, July 4th, at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT, and Sunday, July 5th, at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT.

“We are looking forward to celebrating our country’s Independence weekend,” said Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys. “The Oak Ridge Boys and Mike Huckabee are co-hosting this special on TBN with very special musical guests!” The “Oaks” Joe Bonsall added that “during these times of virus and unrest, how cool it will be to gather with the Governor and celebrate America on the July 4th weekend.”

“This is such a great opportunity to reach out to America on Independence Day,” said Lee Greenwood. “Thank you Governor Huckabee, The Oak Ridge Boys, and TBN for allowing me to be on this 4th of July special.”

Added Nicole C. Mullen: “The Fourth of July reminds me that freedom is never free. It will always cost someone, somewhere a great price. Another truth I have realized is that sometimes you must celebrate the freedom of others while you press towards your own. Most Americans can trace their liberty back to 1776. As an African-American, mine was granted in 1865. For believers in Christ, the price was paid 2,000 years ago, for the greatest eternal emancipation of all — for all who receive it! This year, let’s work towards and celebrate liberty and justice for everyone. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed!”
