The Roys head Down Under

The Roys have just learned that they will spend part of January 2012 touring in Australia.

They will be performing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, a major event in New South Wales that draws 80,000-100,000 each year over the course of 10 days. A number of other dates are booked for January, with more likely to be added before they head over.

Since their video for Coal Minin’ Man has gone into rotation on Australian TV’s Country Music Channel, interest in The Roys has shot up down under.

Here’s a look at the video that caught the Aussies’ attention.
