Congratulations Marty!

My neighbor is a Grammy winner! Well, not my neighbor now in Missouri. Well, actually, we never actually lived next to one another. Let me explain…

I grew up in Lebanon, Ohio. Lebanon is home to Woody Harrelson and his football teammate and classmate Marty Roe. Marty is the lead singer of the band Diamond Rio. Last night at the Grammys, Diamond Rio won the award for Best Southern, Country, or Bluegrass Gospel Album for The Reason. This is their first Grammy after 14 nominations. Diamond Rio made history back in 1991 when their single “Meet in the Middle” was the first debut single ever to reach #1 on the Country charts. Although Marty was making music in Nashville before my family moved next to his family, I’ve always considered the whole Roe family (Zane, Bertie, Marty, and Scott) neighbors.

Congratulations! I’m so excited for you all!
