The Roys Receiving Widespread Attention for New Album ‘Gypsy Runaway Train’

Rural Rhythm Records

Bluegrass stars the Roys have just released a new album, ‘Gypsy Runaway Train,’ and so far the media response has been excellent. The sibling duo of Elaine and Lee Roy have garnered attention from many different media outlets for their unique blend of melody, roots music and vocal harmony.

Their third bluegrass CD for Rural Rhythm Records follows on the heels of last year’s ‘New Day Dawning,’ which landed at No. 1 on Amazon’s Bluegrass Bestsellers chart. The Roys were the ICM Bluegrass Artist of the Year in 2011, and the Inspirational Country Duo of the Year in both 2009 and 2010.

‘Gypsy Runaway Train’ is a mix of original material and classic songs. New tunes like ‘You Can Count on My Love,’ ‘Another Minute’ and ‘Gypsy Runaway Train’ continue the Roys’ tradition of mixing the up-tempo and positive with more somber fare, and the pair also offer up refreshing versions of ‘Blue Moon of Kentucky,’ ‘Born With a Hammer in My Hand’ and even ‘Ramblin’ Fever.’ Elaine Roy contributed the highly personal ‘Half of Me,’ written about her recent divorce, while Lee puts his own spin on the gospel standard ‘He Took Your Place.’

The Roys launched the new album with a string of appearances at CMA Music Festival, as well as coverage from Music Row, No Depression, L.A. Weekly, the Milwaukee Journal, Country Music People, Country Weekly and many more.

‘Gypsy Runaway Train’ is available at iTunes, and the Roy’s summer touring schedule is available here.
