About The Roys

Focused on creating their own music their own way, The Roys formed Pedestal Records in order to deliver their unique style of country music to fans.

“From the first song we recorded on our previous CD, to the new material we’re working on now, we stand behind our music 100 percent,” Lee says. “This represents us, from the bluegrass sound to traditional country to more contemporary sounds.”

“Everybody has a calling in life,” Elaine says. “Ours was inevitable from a very young age.” Lee adds, “We’re just your typical 15-year overnight sensation.”
