The Roys – Coal Minin Man

A video for the debut single from The Roys new album has been released online. It’s for the song, Coal Minin’ Man, the opening track of their Lonesome Whistle album on Rural Rhythm.

Lee and Elaine Roy headed for Kentucky’s coal country for the shoot, and Elaine tells us that it helped capture the spirit they were after in this song.

“Getting to film this video on an actual coal mine and being around real coal miners was incredible. After seeing how hard they work every day I have a new found respect for them. They are the backbone of America.”

The album is full of this sort of tuneful, country/bluegrass songs, backed by the members of Kentucky Thunder. Check it out in iTunes.
