DIAMOND RIO GIVEN MINNIE PEARL AWARD

Grand Ole Opry member Diamond Rio was presented the prestigious Minnie Pearl Humanitarian Award by fellow Opry member and previous award winner Steve Wariner during last Friday's Opry performance. "Wow! All I can say is it's not often in this business that you get surprised," said Diamond Rio member Marty Roe to a standing ovation crowd. "Several years ago we had the honor of working with Minnie. Her amazing spirit lives on to encourage all of us to do good. You don't do it for the awards. You just hope you touch someone along the way."
