Ryman Auditorium, recognized by the State of Tennessee as the Birthplace of Bluegrass,
represents something different to everyone, but it remains one of the
most-cherished stages for artists of all genres. For Lee and Elaine Roy,
the chance to walk onto that historic stage is a once-in-a-lifetime
experience. Lee recalls dreaming of performing on the legendary hardwood
as a child. He notes,
“There is no greater venue to us.
Our emotions will be running high.” For his sister Elaine, “Singing on
that hallowed stage will be surreal.” With her sense of humor intact
Elaine jokes, “If you hear a big thud following our performance that
will be me hitting the floor after passing out!”
THE ROYS were busy
earlier this month at CMA Music Festival 2012. They rode in the event’s
opening day Parade, conducted interviews and performed songs from their
current CD, LONESOME WHISTLE, on the Chevy Roadhouse, Durango Acoustic Corner and Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau
stages. THE ROYS also entertained fans and signed autographs at one of
their favorite venues, the world-famous Ernest Tubb Record Shop.
The reigning Inspirational Country Music’s Bluegrass Artist of the Year,
THE ROYS, come from a unique musical family and are known for their
superb sibling harmonies, “rootsy” sound and compelling original songs.
Their current CD, LONESOME WHISTLE (Rural Rhythm Records), debuted at #7
on BILLBOARD’s Bluegrass Albums Chart and combines the best of
the genre’s traditions with the promise of its future. THE ROYS have
shared the stage with George Jones, Lady Antebellum, Janie Fricke, The
Oak Ridge Boys and Chris Young, among others. They have toured
extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada and made their debut in
Australia this past January. The duo has enjoyed high-profile national
TV gigs on ABC, FOX, GAC, PBS and RFD, hosted seven episodes of the Bluegrass Mountains TV show and more. In April, the two co-hosted the first annual Christmas 4 Kids Celebrity Golf Tournament with Tennessee Titans’ Placekicker Rob Bironas. THE ROYS were previously honored with the ICM’s Duo of the Year
Award in 2010 and 2009. Currently they are featured in the 2012 Vietti
Vinyl campaign and appear on 500,000 cans of the brand’s Family Style Beef Stew sold in
Family Dollar stores in 25 states.  Lee and Elaine are also
spokespersons for COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL, a child advocacy ministry.
