The RoysNashville, TN -- Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce that bluegrass music artists The Roys currently have two albums on the Billboard Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart. This week The Roys have the #2 position with their 2013 album release Gypsy Runaway Train and the #3 position with their 2012 album release New Day Dawning.

The Roys performed their traditional and contemporary Bluegrass music to over 30,000 Country music fans at the 2013 Wisconsin Country Thunder festival July 19-21. The Roys were invited by the festival organizers to host The Roys’ Pickin’ Porch stage, entertaining the Country Thunder audience throughout the festival.

“It is very exciting to see The Roys music being enjoyed by new audiences. Lee & Elaine performed their traditional and contemporary Bluegrass to over 30,000 music fans and the positive results are reflective on the chart. This was a great opportunity to introduce a new audience to the signature sound of The Roys and at the same time bring an awareness and appreciation of Bluegrass music to this new audience,” said Sam Passamano, II – President Rural Rhythm Records.

This is the third consecutive year that The Roys performed at the Wisconsin Country Thunder festival, and the first year that they hosted The Roys’S Pickin’ Porch Stage. The Roys also introduced Country fans to their traditional and contemporary Bluegrass music at the Arizona Country Thunder festival last year.

The Roys were recently featured on PBS’ Jubilee series, which featured performances from their previous two Top 5 Billboard Bluegrass Albums, Lonesome Whistle and New Day Dawning.
