Update From Joey + Rory: Back in early 2008, I was a full-time songwriter and Joey was an aspiring singer. We had been married for five years, but Joey’s dreams of following in her musical hero Dolly Parton’s footsteps had eluded her. She had all-but-given-up on music and was working every day at Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse, our little family-owned cafe Joey had started with my sister just down the road from our farmhouse.
Little did she know that while she waiting on tables… God was waiting for the right timing to make her dreams come true.
I wrote in another blog post a good while back in more detail about how we got our start singing together.
