Biography

As one-half of the husband/wife country music duo Joey+Rory, featured on the new CMT/American Idol tv show “Can You Duet”, Joey has a voice that is reminiscent of a modern-day Emmylou Harris and a style that’s been compared to a female George Strait. Different than most cosmopolitan, high-fashion female country artists out today, Joey’s not just a country singer, she is country. She sings that way, dresses that way and lives it every day of her life. She knows her way around horses, barns and cattle and she ropes on the side. She may look a supermodel, but she rolls her sleeves up and works like a cowhand. Besides singing, Joey, along with her sister-in-law Marcy, owns and operates a country diner about 45 minutes south of Nashville in the small community of Pottsville (outside of Columbia, TN) called Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse. One of those rare-breed of women who believe their dreams and their destiny are the same thing. Joey’s cut from the cloth of old school strong-backbone female artists like Loretta, Patty and her idol Dolly Parton. She knows who she is and what life and love are truly about. She loves traditional country music. It’s all she knows. Her background is pure country, just like her image and lifestyle. Joey’s never been afraid to sing about the things that are important to her. About real life… family, faith, love, cowboys and the occasional butt kicking she may have to give if a woman tries to take her man.

    Hey Joey! Just wanted to stop by to say I like Speak Love and the Acoustics. I thought you were really talented when I watched you and Rory on CYD but to really sit down and listen to you play the guitar as you do is quite amazing! Just want to let you know that. Hope all is going well with you guys and looking forward to that first album, hopefully soon. God Bless you both! Kristi
