Diamond Rio in Branson - yes! The long-time, multi-award-winning heavy hitters of country are always a welcome sight in America’s live entertainment mecca, and their stop here on December 2 will be no exception! With nearly 20 Top Ten songs, Diamond Rio has been pumping out the hits since they topped the charts in 1991 with the incredible “Meet in the Middle.” Fortunately for all of us, the success of their first release didn’t leave them on the one-hit-wonder list and leave us wanting more - instead, the band has given us scores of hits, including “Norma Jean Riley,” “Love a Little Stronger,” “Walkin’ Away,” “That’s What I Get for Lovin’ You,” “You’re Gone,” and “Holdin’.” In addition to “Meet in the Middle,” their impressive collection of #1 songs includes, “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess,” “I Believe,” and “How Your Love Makes Me Feel.”
In addition to all the love from country music fans, Diamond Rio has lined their shelves with a mind-blowing batch of awards and acknowledgements, including four Country Music Association (CMA) Vocal Group of the Year awards, as well as a CMA for Album of the Year, two Top Vocal Group of the Year awards from the Academy of Country Music, and a Grammy Award for Best Southern, Country, or Bluegrass Gospel Album for “The Reason.”
