A beloved country group gets ready to enter the spotlight once again AP

It was over 25 years ago that the successful country group Diamond Rio found themselves at the top of the charts with their hit single “Meet Me in the Middle.”

And today, they are ready to make their presence known once again.

The group just announced plans to release their 10th studio album, entitled “I Made It,” scheduled for a September 18 release.

“As artists producing music as long as Diamond Rio has, fresh subject matter tends to get more and more difficult to come by,” says Diamond Rio guitarist Jimmy Olander in a recent press release. “As a writer on the title track ‘I Made It,’ simply telling our story is freeing. This is a very specific story, the autobiographical melding of the migration stories my partners and I share about moving to Nashville.  Collectively, we have achieved the amount of success that dreams are made of, but at the end of the day have learned having someone to share this amazing life with – ‘love’ and ‘be loved by’ is the real measure of success. It’s true, ‘I Made It.’”

You certainly did Diamond Rio.

And we are so glad you did.
