Nashville, TN (January 11, 2012) -- The award-winning brother/sister duo, The Roys, will join Vietti Foods to extend the Vietti Vinyl campaign, with the duo's image appearing on 500,000 cans of the brand's Family Style Beef Stew in Family Dollar stores in 25 states throughout 2012.  The Roys are the first artists to grace the Beef Stew can labels; Vietti Chili line participants include: Chris Young, Bo Bice, The Isaacs, John Corbett and Riders In The Sky. The Vietti Vinyl initiative gives voice to musicians, and gives consumers a chance to spice up their music collection, sample new sounds and videos.

"Our company is highly selective in choosing the artists who participate in the Vietti Vinyl program," says Philip M. Connelly, President, Vietti Foods Company, Inc. "And we are very enthusiastic to partner with The Roys. Fans should expect to discover them on another line of our products in the near future."

"We are beyond excited to join the Vietti Family," says Elaine Roy. "The company is dedicated to the creation of a superior product and active in several charities."
 
The Roys, spokespersons for COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL, believe in giving back.  They are also uniquely qualified to act as ambassadors for their genre. Two-time ICM Duo of the Year (2010, 2009), they were named the organization's Inspirational Bluegrass Artist of the Year in 2011. Their current CD, LONESOME WHISTLE, continues to bring them not only critical acclaim, but retail success as well, and the disc earned them a spot on BILLBOARD'S Top 50 Bluegrass Albums of 2011 chart. As well, their hit single, "Coal Minin' Man," rocketed up the Bluegrass charts worldwide. Recently, Lee and Elaine signed a production deal with ValCom Studios for a new, weekly music-driven variety show (Roots And Music With The Roys), which begins taping next month.

"The last few years have been incredible for us," explains Lee Roy. "Teaming with Vietti in 2012 gives us the chance to expand our music to new markets through the Vietti Vinyl project. We are truly excited about this opportunity."

ABOUT THE ROYS:
Massachusetts natives Lee and Elaine Roy are both accomplished musicians (Elaine/guitar; Lee/drums, bass and mandolin), but they are best-known for their superb harmonies, "Rootsy" sound and compelling original songs. They've toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, and last year they appeared on high-profile television shows on ABC, FOX, GAC, RFD and more. Later this month, the duo heads to Australia for a series of concerts and festivals. www.theroysonline.com .

Corey Wagar Preparing for Launch of Music Video

Rockin’ Country Gal, Corey Wagar Preparing for Launch of Music Video
Sweet and sassy, Corey Wagar is telling it like it is in her new video, I Hate My Boyfriend, which will launch next Tuesday, January 17 on her website. The video is following the huge success of her single and currently, it is #45 on the Music Row Charts.
 
“I am overwhelmed and can’t thank radio and my fans enough for all their support in this song,” smiles Corey. “It’s amazing how just a simple phrase can make a song become a hit! Keep an eye out for the video on GAC, CMT and TCN in the near future.”
 
The video was filmed in several different locations, including a performance at the historic Manchester Naval Base, where the Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed in 1937, as well as Corey and friends hanging out at the Jersey shore.
 
I Hate My Boyfriend is the second single off her debut album, On The Edge, which was produced by renowned Producer Kent Wells (Dolly Parton, etc). Corey is gearing up for a show this Saturday, January 14th at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, in support of Light of Day, a foundation that raises money to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. She will also be in Nashville next month for Country Radio Seminar.
 
With a musical style inspired by the likes of country stars Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood, this New Jersey native grew up listening to country music and knew she would make a career out of it. She began writing early on and has recently teamed up with some of country music’s best known songwriters including artists Jamie O’Neal, Billy Montana (Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, etc), Rob Crosby (Brooks and Dunn, Trace Adkins, etc), Lonnie Wilson (Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride, Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan, etc) and Karen Staley (Faith Hill, Terri Clark, Leann Rimes, etc). For more information on Corey and to check out her video on January 17th, please visit www.coreywagar.com.

BLUEGRASS EMERGES VICTORIOUS IN UPPER MIDWEST

BLUEGRASS EMERGES VICTORIOUS IN UPPER MIDWEST
Story by Bob Phillips, Public Relations Director, National Traditional Music Assn., Inc.
 
     LeMars, Iowa....."When we started our festival of old-time acoustic music 37 years ago," Bob Everhart the President of the National Traditional Music Association, says, "we had no idea where we were going with it.  We wanted to be sure we could play a role in preserving America's old time rural music.  That became a rather large umbrella, including folk music, mountain music, cowboy music, ragtime music, western music, traditional music, classic country music, and what appears to be the winner in so far as 'style' is concerned, bluegrass music."
     It must be remembered that bluegrass music, the brainchild of Kentuckian Bill Monroe, was in Iowa at the beginning of Monroe's career in music.  As a matter of fact, Bill and his brother Charley came to Iowa in 1934, to take their very first job performing music for pay at radio station KFNF, in Shenandoah.  Monroe married an Iowa girl, and went on to become one of the first of the mountain musicians to take his music to the national and international stage.
     "We still honor Monroe," Everhart added, "his 100th birthday has not slipped by us, and this year we will be adding another stage to the ten we already have, dedicated to bluegrass music."
     The "stages" Everhart is referring to, are no less than ten 'sound stages' that are set up for the seven-day celebration of old-time acoustic music in LeMars, Iowa.  The festival takes place at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds, with dates this year being August 27-September 2nd.  The main stage, where celebrities perform, is air conditioned.  Bill Anderson and Patti Page showed up on that stage in 2010.  Last year Little Roy Lewis and Jim Ed Brown commanded.  Everhart is quick to point out, "Dr. Ralph Stanley was to be with us in 2011, but he got stranded in NYC because of the hurricane there.  He is going to try to make this up by being in LeMars this year."
     According to past indications, there will be a lot of pickers, players, performers, and of course vocalists at this year's event.  Everhart says, "We've had lots of great artists.  Some of them get inducted into America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame and some of them are recipients of the Rural Roots Music Commission's "CD of the Year" awards, but mostly they are there to 'share' the music.  That's why bluegrass 'wins' in 2012.  We are going to open up another building and add a 'jam' only stage.  We're going to do jams in two-hour sessions four times a day on all seven days.  One jam is called the Texas Jam, where the players gather together as one group, and the 'subjects' come up one at a time.  Another jam is a 'circle jam' where all the players sit in a circle and a microphone is passed around to each player.  A third jam is called 'Toast & Jam' where anyone can take the 'lead' until someone else insists on taking it, much like a guitar pull.  And a fourth jam is a 'bluegrass' jam utilizing the instruments used to play bluegrass music." 
     One of the ten original stages is dedicated to workshops and contests.  "We have our participants share their knowledge and ability with whoever is wanting to learn," Everhart boasted.  "Some of the workshops that go from 9am to midnight every day, are very well attended.  Whether you want to learn how to play the banjo, or how to play the bones, we have excellent teachers all day for five of the seven days.  On the weekend the workshop building becomes our contest forum.  There's about 25 contests from bands to single vocalists, from single instrumentalists to over-50 only singers.  It's great fun, and when you add showcases for aspiring bands and individuals, it makes a lot of sense because we have a tremendous number of talent buyers coming to this event."
     There's plenty of other activities at this seven-day festival, free food among them.  "There's a huge 80-gallon iron pot of free soup at our tipi rendezvous village," Everhart added, "and we have free watermelon, free pot-lucks, and since LeMars is the ice-cream capital of the world, free ice cream.  We're also very proud of our 350 electric hook-ups for RV's, and a grocery store is only three blocks away, so it's an ideal way to spend seven days.....in the country.  We don't allow illicit drugs or alcohol."
     More information about bluegrass participation at LeMars is available at their website at www.ntcma.net
