The Romney event was held at Lake Erie College (391 W. Washington Street) and began at 2:30 p.m for politicos and music fans. The Roys took to the stage at approximately for a performance that featured songs from their brand EP, New Day Dawning, and their critically-acclaimed previous CD, Lonesome Whistle.
"We were thrilled by Governor Romney's invitation," notes Elaine Roy. "But we are going to ask him if we're on that famous iPod of his," jokes her brother, Lee.
For The Roys, high-profile performances have become the norm, and their fans have ample opportunity to catch the duo as Lee and Elaine continue a circuit of national television appearances. The sibling duo has been featured on CBS This Morning, the Dr. Steve Show with an episode taped at Nashville's Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt for a Music Therapy segment. They were recently on Fox & Friends and will be on The Better Show September 26th.
The high-energy duo has performed at over 150 shows so far this year. The siblings' new EP debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart last week, and their current single, "Still Standing," recently enjoyed exclusive coverage on AOL, SiriusXM, FOX NEWS Edge, #CMChat, Bluegrass Radio Network and GAC-TV.
The duo has shared the stage with George Jones, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Ricky Skaggs, John Rich, Darryl Worley, Doyle Lawson, Janie Fricke, The Oak Ridge Boys, Rhonda Vincent and Chris Young. They were recently featured in the PBS television special Pa's Fiddle: Charles Ingalls, American Fiddler and have hosted seven episodes of the Bluegrass Mountains television show.
