Nashville, Tenn. Nov. 19, 2009…  Multi-platinum selling group Diamond Rio will be appearing on Fox News’ hit show “Huckabee” this Saturday, November 21 at 8pm ET. The band will be performing “God Is There” off of their latest Word Records’ release The Reason. Diamond Rio also released their first autobiography Beautiful Mess from Thomas Nelson coinciding with the album release.

Hosted by Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, “Huckabee" is a talk show that covers a variety of topics from politics and religion to pop-culture. The host of the No. 1 rated weekend hit often performs with guests and his band, The Little Rockers.

Formed in 1984, Diamond Rio features lead singer Marty Roe, guitarist Jimmy Olander, drummer Brian Prout, keyboardist Dan Truman, bassist/harmony Dana Williams and Gene Johnson on mandolin/harmony. The band signed with Arista in 1988 and embarked on one of the most successful careers in country music. The band has sold over 10 million albums earning three platinum and five gold records and won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year award four times as well as netting two Academy of Country Music Awards in the top Vocal Group of the Year category and thirteen GRAMMY ® nominations. When they debuted in 1991 with the hit “Meet in the Middle,” Diamond Rio became the first group in the history of country music to have a debut single reach No. 1. They continued to place 32 more singles on the Billboard chart, including “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “Norma Jean Riley,” “Beautiful Mess” and “Love a Little Stronger.” Their last recording, A Diamond Rio Christmas: The Star Still Shines, a 2007 holiday album marked their debut with Word Records.
