THE ROYS Named Top Bluegrass Artist At 10th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards

Bookmark and Share

THE ROYS, award-winning brother/sister duo, were named Top Bluegrass Artist at the 10th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) on Wednesday. The IAMA promotes excellence in acoustic music performance and artistry, acoustic artists in various genres.

"Another Minute," a song penned by Lee Roy in fond remembrance of his grandfather and released on THE ROYS' recent hit-album Gypsy Runaway Train, competed against thousands of entries from all over the world, including (but not limited to) Australia, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Germany, USA, and South Africa. Winners were chosen by a Blue Ribbon Judging Committee comprised of music industry professionals including A&R managers from record labels, publishers and producers and judged equally on music performance, production, originality, lyrics, melody and composition.

"What an honor it is to be recognized internationally for this song!" says an elated Lee Roy. "My grandfather was such an incredible person, and the time I had with him was so precious! Looking back, I realized how much he helped to shape my life and I set out to write a song about it. Fans just immediately connected with it, so we included it on our latest album. It's really cool to win this award but even better that my grandfather helped me to win it!"

"When Lee brought me this song, it brought tears to my eyes," says Elaine Roy. "Pepere [French for grandfather] would be humbled by it all, but so proud that his grandson was able to write something that would resonate with fans all over the world. We couldn't be more thrilled!"

IAMA is sponsored by SiriusXM Radio, D'Addario Strings, Acoustic Café Radio Show, SongU.com, New Music Weekly, Broadjam, Sonicbids.com , Loggins Promotion, Airplay Access, NoisyPlanet.net, and Kari Estrin Management & Consulting.
