Joey & Rory have not only turned their critically-acclaimed A Farmhouse Christmas CD into a multi-city tour, they have taped a television special called “Country’s Family Reunion Presents Joey & Rory’s A Farmhouse Christmas.” The hour-long special will make its debut during the time slot of RFD-TV’s popular “Country Family Reunion” show tonight at 7pm CST.
“We got to know Larry (Black) when we were guests on a couple of his shows earlier this year on RFD'” said Rory Feek. “We love what he’s done with county music and values on his programs, and we pitched him the idea of A Farmhouse Christmas. Larry’s an outside-the-box thinker, like we are, so I think it just made sense and sounded like fun to him. We’re thrilled at how it turned out, and we’re anxious for everyone to see it. Funny thing is, we don’t even have a tv, so we’ll have to go visit someone and catch it one these nights!”
Taped in their 1870s farm house and spacious barn in Pottsville, Tennessee, Joey & Rory mixed songs from their A Farmhouse Christmas CD with light-hearted conversation about Christmas memories, favorite gifts, cooking and more. They performed all of the songs with their band in front of a set that they built in their barn. “It was decked out like a winter wonderland”, wife of the duo, Joey Martin added. “You won’t even be able to tell Rory usually has his old cars and boat parked where we were singing!”
“Country’s Family Reunion Presents Joey+Rory’s A Farmhouse Christmas” will re-air on RFD-TV November 26 at 11p.m., December 23 at 8p.m. and December 24 at 5a.m. and 11p.m. All times Central.
Joey & Rory will miss the television show when it debuts on Friday night, as their A Farmhouse Christmas Tour kicks off in Joey’s hometown area of Anderson, Indiana the same night. The full slate of dates for the unique concert can be viewed at JoeyandRory.com.
