ABOUT The Roys
Massachusetts natives Lee and Elaine Roy were "raised right" on Country and Bluegrass in New Brunswick, Canada. Both are accomplished musicians (Elaine/guitar; Lee/drums, bass and mandolin), but they are best-known for their superb harmonies, "Rootsy" sound and compelling original songs. Their latest CD, LONESOME WHISTLE, blends musical excellence and passion to create a musically-intoxicating package. The disc, which debuted at #7 on BILLBOARD's Bluegrass Albums Chart, includes the duo's current single and chart-topping hit, "Coal Minin' Man." In addition to chart success, The Roys are also receiving the accolades of their peers, winning the coveted 2011 Inspirational Bluegrass Artist of the Year Award at the 17th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards show in October. The Roys were previously honored with the ICM's Duo of the Year Award in 2010 and 2009. They've opened for George Jones, Lady Antebellum, John Rich, Darryl Worley, The Oak Ridge Boys and Chris Young, and have enjoyed high-profile national TV gigs, including performances on Fox & Friends, Daytime, The Daily Buzz, ABC's What's The Buzz, GAC's Headline Country, RFD's Campfire Café and Larry's Country Diner and more.
