LONESOME WHISTLE is the culmination of a lifelong dream for The Roys.
The 11-song disc includes 10 Roy originals, and was co-produced by the duo and Andy Leftwich. Lee and Elaine join top-tier musicians Mark Fain (Bass); Justin Moses (Banjo); Randy Kohrs (Dobro); Cody Kilby (Acoustic Guitar), Andy Leftwich (Fiddle, Mandolin) and Steve Brewster (Percussion), and the result is a musically “tight” CD with a “live” feel.

The disc’s first single, “Coal Minin’ Man,” is a rollicking, mid-tempo ode to the hardworking souls who labor below the earth. The track debuted last month on the Bluegrass Music Profiles Chart (#17), and debuts this month on Power Source (#26), the Roots Music Bluegrass Report (#43), and more. The video, which was filmed in Hazard, KY at the Teco Coal Company, rolls out very soon. LONESOME WHISTLE will be available tomorrow at retail outlets, including Barnes & Noble, Best Buy and f.y.e. entertainment, and online at, iTunes, eMusic and more.

The disc is The Roys’ first release for Rural Rhythm Records and they join a roster that includes Michael Martin Murphey, Randy Kohrs, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Mason Douglas and Lonesome River Band among others.
