Diamond Rio Signs With Word Records

Diamond Rio has signed with Word Records, a Christian label based in Nashville, and will release a holiday album on Oct. 9. A Diamond Rio Christmas: The Star Still Shines features classic holiday songs and an original title track. “It is a very exciting time being in Diamond Rio right now,” guitarist Jimmy Olander said. “The folks at Word share with us not only a great passion for the music but an even greater passion for the message. This is a great fit.” Diamond Rio left Arista Nashville last year following a tenure that included five No. 1 singles, including “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess” and “I Believe.”
