The Roys Join 2015 Country Music Cruise
After a stellar performance on the high seas in 2014, bluegrass duo the Roys will be joining the Country Music Cruise again in 2015.
“Being invited to play on the Country Music Cruise is so exciting,” Elaine Roy says in a press release. “Our love of country music runs deep and getting to share our bluegrass and country roots is an honor. We are looking forward to playing music and playing in the sun.”
The duo were one of the first acts to perform on January’s cruise, and they remained on board throughout the week for a number of performances.
“The Roys were one of our very first acts to perform on the 2014 cruise and we immediately invited them back in 2015,” Senior Vice President Live Entertainment Mike Jason says. “They helped open the cruise, performed to enthusiastic fans several times during the week and were a big part … of our Gospel & Inspiration Hour.”
The 2015 cruise is set to travel the Caribbean January 18-25, departing from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., with stops at the ports of Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Croix and the private island Half Moon Cay.
Earlier this year, the Roys were named Top Bluegrass Artist at the 10th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards for their song ‘Another Minute,’ penned by Lee Roy in honor of the brother-sister duo’s grandfather.
