The Roys have definitely brought the holidays home with their newest CD, BLUEGRASS KINDA CHRISTMAS (Rural Rhythm Records), available now at Walmart, Amazon and iTunes.  THE ROYS’ much-heralded sibling harmonies, spot-on lead vocals and agile musicianship shine a light on Christmas songs both new and old, creating a festive holiday ambiance that’s apropos for any seasonal celebration.

Recorded during a hot Tennessee summer, BLUEGRASS KINDA CHRISTMAS features Elaine Roy (Guitar), Lee Roy (Mandolin, Mandocello, Mandola), Clint White (Fiddle), Daniel Patrick (Banjo, Dobro), Erik Alvar (Bass), and Josh Swift (Dobro*), and was recorded at THE ROYS’ own studio in Hendersonville.

Lee Roy and Elaine wrapped their 2014 touring season – appropriately – with a performance at the Christmas In The Smokies concert in Pigeon Forge, TN on December 13.
