Nashville, TN -- The Roys have signed an exclusive booking agreement with Buddy Lee Attractions for worldwide representation. The deal was solidified yesterday in advance of the award-winning Bluegrass/Country duo's September 2 CD release, The View, on Rural Rhythm Records.
"We're very excited," says Elaine Roy. "Nobody knows this business better." Lee notes, "They've broken some of the biggest acts of all time, handled Bill Monroe throughout his career, and continue to represent some of today's biggest entertainers. We're thrilled to join their roster."
Established in 1964, Buddy Lee Attractions is Nashville's largest privately owned talent agency. Throughout the past 50 years, the company has developed and represented George Strait, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and the Dixie Chicks. Currently, Gwen Sebastian, Steve Holy, Jason Michael Carroll and Duck Dynasty's Mountain Man make their home at BLA.
BLA Senior Vice President David Kiswiney comments, "The entire BLA Team is excited to sign The Roys! We look forward to representing them for Festivals, Fairs and Performing Arts Centers. We know that they will be a welcome addition to any event marquis."
Currently, The Roys are at #3 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Chart with The View'S first single, "No More Lonely," and are gearing up for a special Labor Day weekend CD release party on SiriusXM's Bluegrass Junction channel.
Massachusetts natives raised in Canada, The Roys draw on a wealth of family musical talent and heritage. Their incredible sibling harmonies, clear-as-a-bell lead vocals and contemporary musicianship have seen them rise to the forefront of the Bluegrass scene in recent years.
