Brian Prout
Diamond Rio - United States


Brian was born December 4th in Troy New York and now resides in Nashville TN . Brian is the proud parent of 3, Lily and twins Bentley and Sophie.

Brian’s first performance was with his sister Lori doing a song and dance routine. Brian grew up playing drums in various Rock bands in the New York area and by the late 70’s he was ready to head South to Florida where he found his taste of Country music, so his only career experience has been as a working musician.

Brian became a member of Diamond Rio in 1987 joining Marty, Dan and Jimmy.

Brian loves to snow ski on his time off from the heavy touring schedule of Diamond Rio and enjoys spending time at home with his children

“Whenever I’m asked what my favorite song is that we’ve ever recorded, my usual response is whatever the current single is. But on this new album, I do have a favorite. “I Believe” just absolutely kills me. The melody is so beautiful, and it’s one of Marty’s best vocal performances, ever.”
