The launch for THE ROYS’ newest CD, GYPSY RUNAWAY TRAIN, is underway with a flurry of radio, television, live performances and reviews. The duo celebrates the June 4 release by bringing their signature sibling sound to CMA Music Festival again this year with multiple shows scheduled.
The quality and diversity of the music on GYPSY RUNAWAY TRAIN proves THE ROYS deserve their success: Hot vocals, steamin’ pickin’ and unbridled enthusiasm make this 13-track wonder a celebration of the Bluegrass/Roots genre. Their third CD for Rural Rhythm Records vibrates with positive thoughts and up-tempo energy on “You Can Count On My Love,” ”Born With A Hammer In My Hand,” “Ramblin’ Fever” and the title track. A stellar arrangement featuring the siblings’ exquisite harmonies makes “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” a modern classic, while Elaine’s heart-wrenching vocals and moving lyrics offer a poignant look at her divorce on “Half Of Me.”
