Exclusive Song Premiere: The Little Roy & Lizzy Show's "Let Me Go Wicked World"

The Little Roy & Lizzy Show

Bluegrass Gospel ensemble The Little Roy & Lizzy Show will be releasing their new album Welcome To The Show, their first recording in almost three years. The collection will be released on April 29. One of the album's highlights is the duo's rendition of "Let Me Go Wicked World."  You can listen to song HERE.

Lizzy Long has this to say about the song: "'Let Me Go Wicked World' is a song Randall Hylton wrote, and he has always been a favorite writer of The Lewis Family. We love his writing so much. This song just reached out to me, and we had to record it." 

"Let Me Go Wicked World" is one of the faith-oriented songs on the new record. For the duo, the Christian faith is at the center of their lives. Long continues, "Just like the Preacher taught me in the song... If you dont stand for nothing, then you will fall for anything. Faith is a very strong foundation of it all. Without it, nothing is possible."

"We are so proud of this whole album," the duo notes. "It's the first time we legitimately got in a studio with our whole band ONLY. Then to have Gordon Moteguest playing the piano is just a treat. Two days...and we were done. The songs really feature everybody so well, and they're so fun, have so much feeling, and really go well with today. We hope you love it as much as we did making it!"

About The Little Roy & Lizzy Show

A member of Georgia's legendary Lewis Family, the "First Family of Bluegrass Gospel," Roy McArthur "Little Roy" Lewis, Jr. is famed for his powerful instrumental work and brash onstage persona.  Starting as a banjoist before he reached his teens, Little Roy spent more than 50 years with the tirelessly touring group,who were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Bluegrass Hall of Fame in 2006.  USA Today once called Little Roy "a banjo master, truly a picker's picker," but as dozens of recordings and countless stage shows attest, he is also a masterful guitarist and autoharp player, an accomplished harmony singer and an entertaining lead vocalist whose comedic impulses never overshadow his musicianship.  A living-and energetic-link to the earliest days of bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music, Little Roy is beloved by colleagues and audiences alike.

Elizabeth "Lizzy" Long was born on a farm in Lincolnton, Georgia. Starting out on the piano at an early age, she soon took up the fiddle, guitar, autoharp, bass, banjo, and mandolin, all of which she has been known to take a turn on in a single Little Roy & Lizzy Show set.  The first person to graduate from Glenville State College's 4-year bluegrass music program-the nation's first-Lizzy has played with Mac Wiseman, Jim and Jesse, The Lewis Family, Earl Scruggs and more, while releasing two well-received albums of her own-Blueberry Pie (2015), which debuted at #2 on Billboard's bluegrass chart, and 2020's Dreaming Again.  Her song, "God Is There," co-written with Rhonda Vincent, earned a Dove Bluegrass Song of the Year award in 2015.

For the past dozen years, these two gifted musicians and entertainers have performed together as The Little Roy & Lizzy Show, releasing 5 popular albums and winning four Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year Dove Awards while touring extensively across North America with a tight ensemble that now includes Holger Oleson (bass), Sally Sandker (guitar) and Matthew Songmaker (mandolin).
