Nashville, TN (October 25, 2013) - Brother/sister duo THE ROYS pulled off a "three-peat" at last night's 19th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards, winning the organization's coveted Bluegrass Artist of the Year Award for the third consecutive year.

"Speechless," is how Elaine Roy describes her feelings upon the announcement.  "It's hard to put into words just how much this means to us," adds her brother Lee.  "We are humbled once again."  THE ROYS were previously honored with the following ICM Awards: 2012 No. 1 Inspirational Country Single ("I Wonder What God's Thinking"), 2012 & 2011 Bluegrass Artist of the Year and the 2010 & 2009 Duo of the Year.
 
The Awards event capped off the 2013 ICM Faith, Family and Country Convention that began October 20 at Two Rivers Fellowship at Opryland.  The week included the annual ICM Faith, Family and Country Talent Show, The Power Source #1 Party, annual membership breakfast, seminars, incredible live music and much more.

In addition to winning their most-recent award, THE ROYS were honored to act as presenters during the show.  They shared those duties with American Idol's Melinda Doolittle, The Voice's Holly Tucker, Jim Ed Brown, Former NBA Player Mike Glenn, and Andy Griggs.
 
The show streamed live on http://new.livestream.com/accounts/1130775/icmaweek and will air on The TCT Network, GEB America, National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), The Worship Network and Total Living Network (TLN), reaching a record-breaking potential audience of over 1.6 billion around the world.  National television correspondent and host of Inside Edition Megan Alexander returned as host of the event.
  
In other news, the dynamic Bluegrass duo's current CD, GYPSY RUNAWAY TRAIN, is riding high at the #1 spot on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction's Most-Played Albums list for October.  GRT is the third Rural Rhythm Records' project of Lee and Elaine's to land in the Top 5 on BILLBOARD's Bluegrass Album Chart.  The "Gypsy Runaway Train" single is #25 on this month's BLUEGRASS UNLIMITED National Bluegrass Survey Top 30 Song Chart.  ZUUS Country continues to play the "Gypsy Runaway Train" video on their Americana Currents show.

Joanna Mosca To Open For LeAnn Rimes



Rising Country Star Joanna Mosca To Open For LeAnn Rimes At The Paramount, November 21

"Joanna is an artist that can float from style to style and do so in a manner that sounds almost effortless ... With music this good, I don't see any reason why Mosca's star won't be on the rise."
- Chuck Dauphin, Billboard.com/MNN

Nashville, TN (October 24, 2013) - Rising Country star Joanna Mosca's voice has been compared to those of Reba McEntire and Stevie Nicks, but her sound is truly unique - rich, warm, powerful, playful and inviting.  She'll bring that immediately identifiable voice to The Paramount (370 New York Ave., Huntington, NY) on Thursday, November 21 when she opens for superstar LeAnn Rimes.  The prestigious Long Island venue will open its doors at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 8.  Additional information and ticketing options for the KJOY Radio / NASH FM-sponsored show can be obtained by calling (631) 673-7300 or by logging on to http://paramountny.com

The versatile singer/songwriter is currently riding high with her EP, LET IT ALL BEGIN.  Produced by Grammy award-winning entertainer Bryan White, the disc's release is a milestone in Joanna's Country career.  Highlights abound and include a masterful duet with one of Country's most-heralded vocalists, LONESTAR'S Richie McDonald.  The "country as dirt" "Where Does Good Love Go"is as sultry and seductive as a steamy summer night under the magnolias.  Another stellar track is Joanna's current chart-rising single,"I Guess That Says It All," written by White, Travis Thibodaux and Steve Williams.  Resonating with honest emotion and a wealth of heartache, the track is earning Joanna new fans both here and abroad, leading to recent magazine profiles in Maverick (UK), Country Pulse, Le Cri du Coyote (France), Strictly Country, Up Country (UK), Rivetting Riffs, Kountry Korral (Sweden)Country Entertainment USAThe North East (UK), Nashville Music Guide, Country Music + Dance (Scotland), Country Music Attitude (France) and I Am Entertainment.

Her previous single/video, "Dream On Savannah," wowed the crowds at this year's CMA Music Festival and the clip has enjoyed nearly 200,000 YouTube views to date.  Directed by Steven Weaver (Montgomery Gentry, Craig Morgan, Jeff Bates) of Revolution Pictures, the video was filmed in Nashville and can be seen on ZUUS Country, CMT.com, GACtv.com and Yallwire.com.

ABOUT JOANNA
Joanna's music career began with the release of three consecutive Top Ten FMQB AC Radio Chart singles between 2006 and 2008.  In 2010 she released her first full-length album, JOANNA MOSCA, which contained six original tunes.  The album's first single "Keep On Going" shot onto the Billboard Top 30 AC Chart and earned her a spot on Music Connection magazine's Top 100 Independent recording artists' list.  In 2012, Joanna was named "Who New To Watch" in CMA's Close Up Magazine.  Mosca was born in Connecticut but currently resides in New York where she has studied acting at the prestigious HB Studio in NYC with teachers who included Uta Hagen and Sir Anthony Hopkins.  She has starred in a series of three one-woman shows in New York City that audiences and reviewers praised.
