touch hearts. “Jay DeMarcus, my producer, brought this song to me,” Crabb shares. “I immediately knew I had to record it this song – I knew it would touch people because it touched me. My wife Shellye was going through some very hard times when this song came into our lives – it helped me and I knew it would help others.

The song later came to life through a video directed by award-winner Roman White. Debuting nationally on USAToday.com, the video stars Ashley DeRamus, a young lady living with Downs Syndrome, bringing awareness to those living with the disease.

The album, available in stores and online, boasts all original artist recordings from some of the brightest, biggest, and best artists who are performing songs of faith notable for their uplifting lyrics.

The Roys were named Inspirational Bluegrass Artist of the Year during last night’s 17th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards Show. Siblings Lee and Elaine performed “That’s What Makes It Love,” with special guests Ricky Skaggs and The Whites, before a sold-out crowd. The song is from The Roys’ current CD, LONESOME WHISTLE, which was recorded at Skaggs Place Studio and released in March on Rural Rhythm Records. The Awards show was held at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, and co-hosted by GAC-TV’s Storme Warren and Inside Edition’s Megan Alexander.

“We are absolutely honored,” says Elaine Roy of the duo’s win. “We were raised on Bluegrass,” adds her brother, Lee. “Faith and music are our life’s touchstones.” The two enjoyed a busy ICM week, entertaining crowds at a showcase with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, and at Power Source Magazine’s #1 Inspirational Country Singles Party. These dynamic Bluegrassers continue a busy touring schedule through year’s end, opening tomorrow night for John Rich and Darryl Worley at the Fall Festival at BamaJam Farms in Enterprise, Alabama. Additional dates include shows in Minnesota, Kentucky and Florida. The duo kicks off 2012 with their first-ever shows in Australia at the acclaimed Tamworth Festival.

The Roys have taken their signature sound to a host of Bluegrass gatherings this year, including: Turkey Tracks Bluegrass Festival; Tennessee Fall Homecoming; Rocky River Fall Bluegrass Festival; Niles, MI Bluegrass Festival, and Eastern Music Festival’s Bluegrass Night. The duo has also introduced countless Country fans to the Bluegrass genre, performing at numerous high-profile events this Summer, kicking off Country Thunder Festival USA (where they opened for Lady Antebellum), Dollywood, Dogwood Park Concert Series and more. They’ve appeared on several Fox Television Network shows, Daily Buzz, ABC-TV’s What’s The Buzz, Daytime, GAC-TV, RFD-TV and numerous other popular programs and networks.

The Roys’ recent hit, “Coal Minin’ Man” rocketed up the Bluegrass charts, landing at #1 on Power Source’s Bluegrass Top 35 Chart, #1 on HotDisc International Top 40 Chart, #3 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s National Bluegrass Survey and #4 on Bluegrass Music Profiles’ Top 30 Singles Chart.

The Roys were previously honored with the ICM’s Duo of the Year Award in 2010 and 2009.
