Doc on Joey + Rory announced

Thursday, June 16, 2016 – A documentary about the lives of Joey + Rory during the last 2 years of her life will be out later this year, Rory Feek said on his web site today.

The film "To Joey, With Love," will be in theatres for one night only on Sept. 20.

Joey Feek, one-half of the duo, died from cancer in March at the age of 40. Her illness was documented by her husband on his web site, This Life I Live. An album released just before here passing, "Hymns," shot to the top of the charts.

" Joey and I have a friend named Ben that runs Provident Films here in Nashville and like many others, he has been following our story and hurting and praying for us for the last year or so," Feek wrote. "When I shared some of the hundreds-of-hours of footage with Ben that I had been putting together the last couple months, he and his team offered to help turn that footage in to something greater than just a few small videos on the blog that I write."

"To turn it into a film. A full-length documentary film that begins the day I got out my camera a few weeks before Indiana was born in February of 2014 and runs up until this past spring. A film about our lives during that two-and-a-half years. Our love. Our struggles. And even more so, about our faith in God and our hope in a plan... bigger than the one we can see with our own eyes."

Feek wrote, filmed and directed the movie.

Feek said he hoped the film would "a life of it's own, and be something that people can see for years to come. And maybe, just maybe...someone might find some encouragement in it. In their marriage, or in their suffering, or in their faith, or something else."

CD review - Country Classics: A Tapestry Of Our Musical Heritage With their dedication to traditional country sounds, you may be a little surprised by Joey + Rory's song choices on the covers album, "Country Classics: A Tapestry Of Our Musical Heritage." There isn't a George Jones or Merle Haggard tune in the bunch! Although all these songs are fine ones, many of them were also big hits. For instance, the pair sing Crystal Gayle's big hit, "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue," as well as John Denver's "Back Home Again. ...
CD review - Joey+Rory  - His & Hers On their third release, "His and Hers," husband and wife duo Joey and Rory practice their marital vows quite literally. The couple split the vocal duties right down the middle, alternating lead on each of the 12 tracks. It was a conscious decision to give listeners a feel for each of their voices. The duo is best known for finishing third on CMT's 2008 show Can You Duet and for their single, Cheater Cheater. The opener Josephine is an emotional letter from a Civil War soldier ...
