The Roys Make Grand Ole Opry Debut

The Roys Grand Ole Opry
Chris Hollo

Bluegrass duo the Roys have accomplished another lifelong dream. The brother and sister duo of Lee and Elaine Roy made their debut on the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night, (Nov. 1), performing at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

“There are no words to describe what we’re feeling right now, so we thank y’all for sharing in our dream come true,” vocalist/guitarist Elaine Roy gushed to the crowd. “I just want to say that dreams do come true, so never give up. God always opens the doors. You will never know how incredibly awesome this is.”

Her brother echoed her feelings. “This is a lifelong dream of ours,” he added. “I was knee-high to a grasshopper, as they say, when I first wanted to play the Grand Ole Opry. We were raised in a little town in New Brunswick, Canada called Coal Branch, and going from Coal Branch to the Grand Ole Opry is a pretty amazing feat.”

The siblings, who were introduced by Grand Ole Opry member Jeannie Seely, performed ‘You Can Count on My Love’ and their version Merle Haggard’s ‘Ramblin’ Fever,’ both from their ‘Gypsy Runaway Train’ album.

The award-winning duo, who were recently named the 2013 ICM Inspirational Gospel Artist of the Year, will continue to have a memorable November. Their next scheduled performance is as part of the star-studded tribute to the late George Jones, Playin’ Possum: The Final No Show. The concert, which will be held on Nov. 22 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, is sold out.
