ARTIST OF THE DAY
For longtime Diamond Rio fans wondering why their favorite country band decided to record a Christian record. This was no casual decision, but a cherished opportunity by a group of believers looking to share their faith and celebrate God’s grace and mercy.
“We’re all believers. We always have been,” adds lead vocalist Marty Roe. “I think a lot of our songs reflected that part of who we are, but this was different to actually able to say in a stronger voice what our hearts are about.”
Diamond Rio has released seven studio albums, two greatest hits collections and “A Diamond Rio Christmas: The Star Still Shines,” a 2007 holiday album that marked their debut with Word. The band has earned three platinum albums and won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year award four times as well as netting two Academy of Country Music Awards in the top Vocal Group of the Year category.
The band admits there was a sense of freedom in sharing their faith so openly.
“There has always been a veil on our Christianity and the veil is off,” says Olander. “We’re revealing who we are. We’re not preaching. We’re not preachers, but we’re saying, ‘This is who I am and I’m proud of it.’ God is working and we’re here for a reason.”
