Nashville, TN (October 26, 2011) -- Lee and Elaine Roy were spotted on the set during an August taping of Larry's Country Diner, and show host Larry Black invited them to perform. "It was totally unexpected," laughs Elaine Roy. "We were really lucky our fiddle player Clint White happened to be with us." Leona Williams was the show's featured guest that day, but the grand lady of Country graciously made way for the Bluegrass/Roots duo.
The Roys rose to the occasion with a rousing rendition of "Give A Ride To The Devil" from their current Rural Rhythm Records' CD, LONESOME WHISTLE. "And we didn't leave until we'd gotten our fill of the Diner's awesome cheeseburgers and chocolate pie," adds Lee Roy. This is The Roys' second appearance on the popular RFD-TV show this year.
