Fairfield, Iowa – DIAMOND RIO, together with its original members since their start 25 years ago, has put out 22 top 10 songs on the chart including four number one hits. This Grammy-winning country music icon and member of the Grand Ole Opry brings their hits to the Sondheim Theater, Thursday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
Diamond Rio signed their first record deal in 1991 with the release of “Meet in the Middle,” becoming the first country music group in history to reach number one with a debut single. The band is also known for their hits “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess,” “Unbelievable,” “In a Week or Two,” and more.
The band which has played every note on every album they’ve released recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary. They have sold more than 10 million albums, won a Grammy Award, a Dove Award, six Vocal Group of the Year wins (CMA and ACM), released two Greatest Hit albums, , earned five multi-week number one singles, three certified Platinum and five gold albums, released an autobiography – and with zero band member changes.
“We are very excited to be kicking off our 2016-17 Artist Series: Living it Live at the Sondheim with country music legends Diamond Rio,” said Rustin Lippincott, Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. “Their resume of hits and accolades separates them from the previous big names in country music that have played the Sondheim. It is very cool they are kicking off our jam-packed and impressive season.”
