For Lee and
Elaine, these special dates represent a dream come true – and a good
chance to dip their feet into the bigger global pond.  “
To
say we are excited about going to Europe is an understatement,” notes
Elaine.  “We are counting down the days!”  The siblings believe that
music is the universal language and hope that their music will resonate
with the audiences overseas.  “We want to show them that we love what we
do and that we feel blessed to do it.”
The two are studying
some key phrases in Dutch and German, and Lee is looking forward to the
challenge of driving on the “other” side of the road.  “Elaine’s scared
to death of my driving here,” Lee admits with a laugh.  “I can’t wait to
see how fast she buckles up once I’m behind the wheel over there.”
Lee and Elaine
regularly perform over 150 dates a year across the U.S. and in Canada at
venues ranging from festivals to more intimate music halls.  They have
become a favorite at Country Thunder and are honored to have performed at Bluegrass Nights At The Ryman, CMA Music Festival and the Tamworth Music Festival
(Australia).  THE ROYS have shared the stage with Bluegrass and Country
legends and newcomers alike, including: George Jones, Ricky Skaggs,
Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda
Vincent and many others.
Recently, the
duo has been in the studio putting the finishing touches on their
upcoming CD which is due in stores this summer.  Their
sophomore disc for Rural Rhythm Records, NEW DAY DAWNING (2012), debuted at Number 2 on the BILLBOARD Bluegrass Albums Chart in early September and two weeks later climbed to Number 1 on Amazon’s Bluegrass Best Sellers list.  The EP is currently on the BLUEGRASS UNLIMITED MAGAZINE Top 15 Chart and is one of SiriusXM BLUEGRASS JUNCTION’s most played albums.
