How to Hire DIAMOND RIO For Your Event!
Hire Diamond Rio.
GRAMMY AWARD winning Diamond Rio is an American
country music band. The band was founded in 1982 as an attraction for the
Opryland USA theme park in Nashville, Tennessee, and was originally known as the
Grizzly River Boys, then the Tennessee River Boys. It was founded by Matt
Davenport, Danny Gregg, and
Ty Herndon, the last of whom became a solo artist in the mid-1990s.
After undergoing several membership changes in its initial years, the band has
consisted of the same six members since 1989.
With its buoyant, lighter-than-air vocal harmonies and intricately woven
instrumentation, Diamond Rio has been transforming great songs into
standards since the release of its self-titled 1991 debut album.
In the process, the six-man band has won six "Vocal Group
of the Year" awards from the Academy of Country Music and
the Country Music Association. It has racked up seven Grammy
nominations. All of its studio albums have been certified gold or platinum.
In April, 1998, the group received the highest honor that can be
conferred on a country act when it was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
It thus became the first band in 14 years to join the fabled institution.
This tremendous event culminated a year of career reinforcement and
incredible commercial fulfillment. Having re-gained the CMA "Vocal Group of
the Year" award, Diamond Rio for the first time traveled
beyond U.S. boundaries to personally embrace international audiences with two promotional
trips to Germany and one to Japan.
In 1997, Diamond Rio was the only group to hold the #1
slot on Billboard's country airplay chart for 3 consecutive weeks with
Your Love Makes Me Feel."
The group has gained considerable attention through its high-spirited
music videos, particularly with "Bubba Hyde," the ACM "County
Video of the Year" nominee "How Your Love Makes Me Feel"
and the seriously off-center "mini-movie," "It's All In Your Head,"
which starred Martin Sheen and Ramone Estevez.
Diamond Rio evolved from The Tennessee River
Boys, a country band that worked Nashville's Opryland USA
amusement park during the early to mid-1980's. Over the next few years, the band kept
changing and taking on new members. By 1989, it had solidified into its current makeup. In
1990, the band signed to the then-new country division of Arista Records and changed its
name to Diamond Rio.
Arista Records/Nashville released the albums "Diamond
Rio" in 1991, "Close To The Edge" in 1992, "Love A Little Stronger" in 1994, "IV" in 1996 and "Greatest Hits" in 1997.
