About The Roys
Lee and Elaine hail from Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and draw from a deep well of experience that owes much to the bluegrass and country music that permeated their youth. In 2008, THE ROYS released their debut album, GOOD DAYS, and began building a national fan base that soon discovered what country music lovers in New England had known all along. They landed coveted gigs working with George Jones, Collin Raye, Phil Vassar, The Oak Ridge Boys and Chris Young, among others. Now, the two are kicking their career into high gear. They recently made their national television debut on the annual Jerry Lewis Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon, and in August, they traveled to Bogota, Columbia, South America as part of an outreach mission sponsored by Compassion International, an organization for which they are spokespersons.
