Nashville, TN (November 4, 2013) – Award-winning Bluegrass siblings
THE ROYS marked another milestone in their career with their Grand Ole
Opry debut last Friday night on the stage of Nashville’s world-famous
Ryman Auditorium. Introduced by Grammy-winning Opry legend Jeannie Seely
and backed by the renowned Opry band, THE ROYS brought down the house
with “You Can Count on My Love” and their version of Merle Haggard’s “Ramblin’ Fever,” both tracks from their latest album GYPSY RUNAWAY TRAIN 
“There
are no words to describe what we’re feeling right now, so we thank
y’all for sharing in our dream come true,” vocalist/guitarist Elaine Roy
told the Ryman audience.  “I just want to say that dreams do come true,
so never give up.  God always opens the doors.  You will never know how
incredibly awesome this is.”

Vocalist/mandolinist
brother Lee Roy echoed his sister’s sentiments.  “As Elaine said, this
is a lifelong dream of ours,” he beamed.  “I was knee-high to a
grasshopper, as they say, when I first wanted to play the Grand Ole
Opry.  We were raised in a little town in New Brunswick, Canada called
Coal Branch, and going from Coal Branch to the Grand Ole Opry is a
pretty amazing feat.”
THE ROYS’ first Opry appearance was a night to remember for the traditional but unique artists.  They
have become mainstays on the Bluegrass charts and on satellite radio,
and known as Nashville’s Bluegrass ambassadors to the world.
The excitement continues on November 22 when the duo will be performing with Jim Lauderdale at the sold-out “Playin’ Possum! The Final NO Show” in Nashville, and 2014 will prove to be even bigger and better, as they are currently booking their tour.
