Award-winning Bluegrass Duo THE ROYS  Return To The Oak Tree Opry In Anita, Iowa on Tuesday, July 17
Smithsonian Institution recording artists Bob & Sheila Everhart will open

I love the Roys . I knew these kids when they were little.  They used
to come out to our shows when they were little kids and now they’re
grown up. I’m so proud of them. They’re great singers, great songwriters
and really great people. I feel that some seed I have sown along the
way has taken root in some good soil in these kid’s hearts. They think
that following Christ with the music God has given them is a good thing
to do and I’m behind them 100%.” – Ricky Skaggs
