Catch The Roys’ Impromptu Appearance On RFD-TV’sLarry’s Country Diner Tomorrow Night
Lee and Elaine Roy were spotted on the set during an August taping of Larry’s Country Diner, and show host Larry Black invited them to perform. “It was totally unexpected,” laughs Elaine Roy.  “We were really lucky our fiddle player Clint White happened to be with us.” Leona Williams was the show’s featured guest that day, but the grand lady of Country graciously made way for the Bluegrass/Roots duo.
The Roys rose to the occasion with a rousing rendition of “Give A Ride To The Devil” from their current Rural Rhythm Records’ CD, LONESOME WHISTLE.  “And we didn’t leave until we’d gotten our fill of the Diner’s awesome cheeseburgers and chocolate pie,” adds Lee Roy.  This is The Roys’ second appearance on the popular RFD-TV show this year.

Country Star Rodney Atkins Helps Launch The Thank You Movement Today To Honor Veterans & Troops
Platinum-selling country artist Rodney Atkins has partnered with Applebee’s to launch the world’s largest ongoing military thank you campaign, honoring veterans and active duty soldiers worldwide.  As Ambassador of the Thank You Movement, Rodney Atkins officially launched the campaign this morning with an exclusive announcement on NBC’s Today show, followed by a stellar live performance for an enthusiastic crowd of civilians, veterans and military organizations in New York’s Times Square.  Guests of honor at the event included representatives from  Pinnacle Five, comprised of senior enlisted members from the all respective branches of the U.S. Military, as well as  Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and  Military.com—the largest military and veteran membership organization consisting of 10 million members. 
Aimed at creating a groundswell of gratitude for our nation’s military, theThank You Movement offers messages of thanks to our veterans and troops via  www.thankyoumovement.comApplebee’s Facebook Fan Page, #thankyoumovement onTwitter and on  YouTube. The Web site will host a live rolling counter of ongoing “Thank Yous.” Veterans and active duty troops can then go online anytime to see and hear heartfelt thanks from the people they serve.
The Thank You Movement is a natural extension of both Rodney Atkins’ and Applebee’s longstanding dedication to veterans and active duty military.  Atkins has always made time to support the U.S. armed forces and their families, often visiting with soldiers, volunteering at various base concerts, and spending time with wounded warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In 2012, he will participate in a USO tour of military bases abroad.  Likewise, Applebee’s has served more than two million free “thank you meals” to the military on Veteran’s Day for the past two years, and will continue the tradition this year. 
In addition to his military support and stellar musical talent, Atkins spends his time in a variety of charitable efforts. As the 2010 Spokesman for the National Council for Adoption at Holston Methodist Children’s Home in Greeneville, Tenn. — where he himself was adopted as an infant — Atkins performs there as often as he can, and participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new “Rodney Atkins Youth Home” in 2009.  He also headlined the 2011 Music City Gives Back Benefit Concert, which contributed donations to the American Red Cross Relief Fund for tornado victims of the recent storms throughout the Midwest and Southeast.
