This appears to be the second album for this brother/sister duo - Lee and Elaine Roy - based in Nashville and they've already gotten chart position with the lead off track "Coal Minin' Man", my second favorite track on the album. The honor for the "winner" is Track 2 - "That's What Makes it Love", co-written by Lee (who wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 11 tracks; Elaine is credited on two others.). He wrote this as a tribute to Ricky Skaggs and Skaggs returned the honor by singing backup, and bringing along The Whites as well. This could well be single # 2.

Elaine has a high-pitched voice and Lee's is best described as "reedy" but their harmonies mesh nicely on most of the tracks. The banjo is prominent on most tracks as well with lots of mandolin of course.

My only complaint on the album is becoming a common one these days with CD packaging. While the CD insert is 9x12 inches unfolded, the producers decide to use one side for a large color photo and then tried to squeeze the notes - including the lyrics to ALL the songs - on the other. The lyrics are barely readable in their miniscule font size but then the notes are printed even smaller! I couldn't find a magnifying glass so I gave up on these.

This is an entertaining album from group that is trying to break out of the standard bluegrass band mold. A few of these tracks (including those previously mentioned as well "Everything I Ever Wanted" should give them some more exposure.

Lee and Elaine's voices are so wonderful together the musicians are the best. I listen to there music every day. Coal Minin' Man is sure to hit no.on on the Bluegrass and Country charts!! A well produced and engineered CD worth buying.

We heard this group on tv & liked them. We like bluegrass & country. They sound a lot like Allison Krauss.

I heard the song TrailBlazer on the radio and had to buy the cd. Well I really loved all the songs on the cd and my very bestest favorite is The High Road. Never heard of the Roys before, but have become a fan. Thanks so much!

This is a great CD by a brother & sister duo ! Great selection of songs with a great band playing with them. It touches on Bluegrass but if you listen to the words, lot of good music comes out ~
I would buy it again !
