NASHVILLE, Tenn.—July 16th, 2013—Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awarimaged-winning husband and wife country duo Joey+Rory

have just released an inspirational recording in partnership with Gaither Music Group.

Inspired, Songs of Faith and Family features all-new songs of faith, several of which were written or co-written by Joey and Rory; in addition, the recording includes the couple’s unique arrangements of timeless gospel classics such as “In the Garden,” “Amazing Grace,” “Are You Washed in the Blood”and “Leave It There.”
“Our faith is the most important part of our marriage and our lives,” Joey states, “And we’ve always recorded a song about our faith on each album we’ve made.  Church has always been a part of my life, and I remember my mom singing those old hymns when I was a little girl.  I’ve always wanted to do a gospel album…our fans have been asking for a long time when we were going to record an album filled with songs about faith.  Now is the time.”
Recorded in a beautiful barn in Franklin, Tenn.,  south of Music City, just down the road from their Pottsville, Tenn. farm, Inspired, Songs of Faith and Family offers songs that those fans are sure to find moving.
“On the records we’ve made in the past, we’ve always gone into a recording studio and recorded using some of the best studio players in Nashville, but with this one we actually went into our friend’s barn studio and recorded this whole album with just a few friends,” explains Rory, who produced the new release with Joe West.  “We did it a completely different way, a little more organic.  It has a different feel and sound to it than the other records that we’ve done…mostly, I guess, because it was made in a space where Joey could cook the whole time we were recording.  It has a full kitchen; and as we were recording, she was baking and cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner.  We had to pull her away at times and say, ‘Okay, go in the vocal booth and sing.’  She’d sing the song and then go right back out and start cooking again.” Read more »
