Well with our dear Beth Cummings still not 100% Larry had more heart trouble and had to go in for a pacemaker.He came
through fine but please pray that they both get their health back and will be back on the opry stage soon.
IF this will work it is Bobby Gibson and Nokie Edwards at the opry It was a great night.
The board has decided to take July and August of 2013
off, we have been here for 8 years never taking time off and since these two months are low count on fans we feel it is time
to take some time for our families. This last year the count has been down and we know we have booked very good talent so
if you have any suggestions to help please get in touch with one of us. Our emails are on the opry board page. Thanks.
Boyd and Phoenix Rising
Based in Tualatin, Oregon – the award
winning original roots music group Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising continues to stack up awards and accolades while performing
their high-energy shows throughout the West. Awards include guitar player Dennis Nelson being named 2008 Roots Music
Association Bluegrass Songwriter of the Year and banjo player Tom Tower winning the $10,000 prize in the 2010 City Love Music
They are starting 2013 with a bang Read below
2013 started off with a bang for Kathy Boyd &
Phoenix Rising when we released "Lowground" to the radio stations, and watched it immediatley shoot to the position of being
the #1 bluegrass CD being downloaded for radio airplay IN THE WORLD
- a position it held for three weeks! At the end of that first week all ten of the Top 10 Bluegrass Singles being downloaded
for radio airplay came from "Lowground" - and eight of them were written by our own Mr. Tim Crosby! Wow.
Brooks was off traveling and enjoying people around the world. We have enjoyed watching him grow into a wonderful person
and boy can he play.

For more that four years,
the nonprofit Emerald Valley Opry has staged monthly shindigs showcasting the many varied strains of country music. Most EVO
performers are local folks, but the Opry also draws from across the western states. A night at the Opry tends to reflect the
organizers'unabashed celcbration of friendship, family and the joys of traditional American music.And almost always, Opry
music is dished up hot and sweet.
