THE ROYS Are Among Top 5 Nominees In Three Categories For 18th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards

Written by SGN Scoops on September 4, 2012 – 2:16 pm -

Nashville, TN (September 4, 2012) — The reigning Inspirational Country Music Bluegrass Artist of the Year, THE ROYS, are among the Top 5 nominees in three categories for the 18th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards, scheduled to be held October 18 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.  The siblings are honored to be eligible for Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Duo of the Year and Inspirational Bluegrass Artist of the Year awards.  “Folks always say how humbled they are to be nominated, and I know it’s true for us,” says Lee Roy.  Adds Elaine, “To be in the company of artists we have admired for many years is incredible.”

The Awards are dedicated to honoring and showcasing the biggest names and emerging talent among artists who perform Inspirational Country Music.  The event is a great fit for THE ROYS, who continue to inspire their fans with fresh, uplifting and thoughtful tunes that are full of life and love.

Their newest Rural Rhythm Records’ EP, NEW DAY DAWNING, was released earlier this week and the disc is already drawing rave reviews. “An optimistic look at life has long been a key part of THE ROYS’ brand of Bluegrass.  On their new studio album, the brother/sister duo continues to blend an uplifting message with a traditional sound and sibling harmonies as they take time to reflect on their own roots.” – GAC

“One of the reasons people love Country music is its focus on morals.  Family, love, God, heartbreak, and relationships are all held dear to those of traditional thinking, and there’s no type of music that more accurately represents these principles than Country music and its sub-genres, including the newest release by Bluegrass duo THE ROYS.” – MUSIC CITY ENCORE

“Elaine and Lee have such a gift for finding great songs, and singing wonderful harmony.” –  SiriusXM Radio

The duo’s current single, “Still Standing,” is drawing equally strong reviews.  Music Row’s Robert K. Oermann has called the track “Their strongest outing yet,” while Joe Limardi, Program Director at powerhouse station 650 AM WSM enthusiastically calls the single “THE breakout hit for THE ROYS!”

A massive launch campaign has surrounded the release of the new EP.  THE ROYS recently made appearances on SiriusXM, Fox News, WAMU, 650 WSM AM and Bluegrass Radio Network.

The new disc follows their landmark Rural Rhythm Records‘ debut CD, LONESOME WHISTLE, which earned the duo a spot on BILLBOARD’S Top 50 Bluegrass Albums of 2011 Chart and gave Lee and Elaine two hit singles: “Coal Minin’ Man” and “Trailblazer.”  In addition to chart success, THE ROYS have received the accolades of their peers, winning the coveted 2011 Inspirational Country Music’s Bluegrass Artist of the Year award.  The siblings were previously honored with the ICM’s Duo of the Year award in 2010 and 2009.

Fans can catch up with THE ROYS online at THEROYSonline.com.

GUY PENROD’S NEW SINGLE RELEASE “MORE POWER TO YA” -NOW AT RADIO- OFFERS TIMELY TRIBUTE TO THE ‘CAN DO’ SPIRIT OF EVERYDAY AMERICANS

Written by SGN Scoops on September 20, 2011 – 11:32 am -

Nashville, Tennessee (September 14, 2011) – Guy Penrod strikes a strong vocal note of encouragement to the everyday American worker in his powerful new single “More Power To Ya” being delivered to country radio this week via Play MPE and CDX Vol. #531. The third single from his much acclaimed BREATHE DEEP CD release, Penrod’s choice of the Jon Mabe/Jason Matthews written “More Power To Ya” continues to engage country listeners with a ‘faith & family’ values message that delves deep into the heart of the nation’s ‘can do’ spirit.  “I chose the song because of its down-to-earth grit when it comes to making it through life,” notes Guy.  “Life often deals us what seems at times to be an unfair hand.  But the message in this great song is that the things that truly matter to us, our families-wives, kids, parents, friends–in short the people we love–are what’s most important. We still get up and get out there and fight to provide for those we love. Things are especially challenging for the American work force at this time, but the numbers still reflect that we, as a people, are going to do what it takes to care for those we love and that grit deserves our applause and encouragement….to which I say, more power to ya!”  With the unveiling of his new single and fall 2011 concert schedule, Guy Penrod remains one of the most “audience connective” live performers in the music industry.  For country fans, his 2010 debut solo tour in support of  BREATHE DEEP put a fresh face” on the unmistakable voice that help propel The Gaither Vocal Band to multi-Grammy wins and multi-million unit record sales. He has to date performed before audiences of more than six million concert-goers in the U.S. alone.  The release of BREATHE DEEP set Penrod on course to be a centerpiece artist at the CMA Music Festival, tour Europe to introduce the new music, and embark on an ambitious country radio promotional tour that boosted his emerging strength in the genre to six figure sales in 2010. Guy will cap October with an October 28th appearance/performance at the ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards presentation being held in Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.  He is nominated in the Male Vocalist of the Year category set to be presented that night.
