“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 10 years of music with Little Roy than this album,” shares Lizzy Long. “It showcases our versatility – everything we’ve learned through the years. From gospel to straight bluegrass to country, we’ve performed and recorded it all.”
The band’s success has been solidified on the Singing News Bluegrass Chartwhere they have the current #1 song for the month of June. “In A Whirlwind” is actually the fourth #1 song on that chart from their previous project, Going Home. This success is an achievement to be celebrated.
Executive Producer, Wayne Haun, has worked with Little Roy and Lizzy from the beginning, and he is proud of their bluegrass success. “Little Roy & Lizzy have been so much fun to produce for the last ten years. The wide variety of bluegrass, gospel and country songs in their repertoire allows them to connect with an audience that’s just as varied. That variety makes each session, each concert and each album entertaining and unique. I look forward to what the next ten years hold for them.”
After so many years working with an icon like Little Roy Lewis, the stories Lizzy has to share are endless. “I’ve been blessed to work with the best in this industry,” Lizzy reflects. “To have Little Roy by my side just makes it worthwhile and very interesting! This album came from our heart. Every song has meaning to us both in one way or another. We love this album and know that you will, too.”

ABOUT THE LITTLE ROY & LIZZY SHOW:
The Little Roy & Lizzy Show features two of Bluegrass Music’s greatest musicians: icon Little Roy Lewis and Lizzy Long. Little Roy is well-known for his banjo virtuosity, having learned to play when he was six years old. USA Today called Little Roy “a banjo master, truly a picker’s picker” – one concert with The Little Roy & Lizzy Show and you’ll know that’s not an exaggeration. In addition to banjo, he also plays the guitar and autoharp and sings. He’s been inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association (SPBGMA) Hall of Greats, the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Hall of Honor and the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Lizzy Long also began her musical career at an early age, learning how to play piano, fiddle, guitar, autoharp, bass, banjo and mandolin. While she is best known for playing fiddle, she is quite accomplished on all instruments. Having toured with such greats as Mac Wiseman, Jim and Jesse, The Lewis Family and Earl Scruggs, Lizzy knew her quest for success would continue in pairing with Little Roy Lewis. She has won several “Bluegrass Song of the Year” awards, GMA Dove Awards for “Bluegrass/Country/Roots Song of the Year” and is one of the youngest fiddlers to be inducted into America’s Old Time Fiddler’s Country Hall of Fame. Together, as The Little Roy & Lizzy Show, they tour extensively throughout the United States playing in various festivals, churches and entertainment halls.
