Grand Ole Opry Member
-- since 1998

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.

Diamond Rio - booking information 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.

Diamond Rio - booking information 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 "How 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.
