Nashville, TN (December 11, 2012) -- THE ROYS recently connected with entertainment icon Marie Osmond for an episode of her popular new Hallmark Channel TV show, Marie!  Lee and Elaine share insights unique to performing siblings with Marie and discuss their new CD and career goals.  The award-winning duo is honored to be the first Bluegrass artist to appear on the show, and they perform their current Top 20 single "Still Standing."  The song is an uplifting tale of triumph over adversity that features Elaine's passionate lead vocal and Lee's poetic harmony; the track is from THE ROYS' most-recent disc NEW DAY DAWNING (Rural Rhythm Records).  The episode airs Thursday, December 13 at 12 Noon ET on cable stations and at 9 a.m. ET on DirecTV.

"You hear people say they feel immediate connections with some folks," notes Elaine Roy. "But I have to say that we actually felt like we'd known Marie forever." Her brother Lee notes, "I have never met anyone more warm and welcoming.  It was an exciting experience to bring Bluegrass to such a unique platform."

Marie's successes continue to grow, and the new show proves her appeal is everlasting. Marie! embraces the "variety" format; other recent guests include Betty White, Florence Henderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristi Yamaguchi, Dean Cain, Windell Middlebrooks and, of course, Donnie Osmond.
