Nashville, TN (November 14, 2014) – Brother/sister duo THE ROYS won the Bluegrass Artist of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year at last night’s 20th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards
show. “Truly humbled once again,” noted Elaine of the honor. “We
thank the Lord Jesus and Mom and Dad,” added Lee. Following their
acceptance of the award, THE ROYS delivered a stellar version of the
poignant “Mended Wings” from THE VIEW, their fourth Rural Rhythm Records’ release. The disc hit stores in September, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 10 Bluegrass Albums chart, and generated a #1 single with “No More Lonely” on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart.
The popular Bluegrassers were previously honored with the following ICM Awards: 2013, 2012 & 2011 Bluegrass Artist of the Year; 2012 #1 Inspirational Country Single (“I Wonder What God’s Thinking”), and the 2010 & 2009 Duo of the Year.
