For One Night, Fathom Events, Provident Films and Hickory Films Present “To Joey, With Love,” An Incredible True Story of Life, Love and Hope that Never Dies
NASHVILLE, June 16, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ — Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory
wanted more to life, so they chose less. In preparation for the birth of their child, the couple simplified their lives by putting their music career aside and staying at home, planting roots deep in the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved. They believed God would give them a great story — and He did.
For only one night on September 20th, Fathom Events and Provident Films will present the intimate and deeply touching documentary, To Joey With Love in movie theater nationwide
. Joey+Rory’s incredible true story of life, love and hope that never dies. Joey captured the hearts of millions through Rory’s blog, This Life I Live
, where Rory shared the story of the couple’s strength during his wife Joey’s fight against cancer.
The earthy purity of Joey+Rory’s story has never been revealed with this level of intimacy and access. The stirring journey of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Top New Vocal Duo takes moviegoers from the birth of their daughter Indiana who was born with Down Syndrome, through Joey’s struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer — all amidst their never-ending hope in something far greater. To Joey, With Love was produced by Hickory Films in association with Provident Films.
In their music career, Joey+Rory recorded eight studio albums for Vanguard Records and Farmhouse Recordings and charted three singles on Hot Country Songs. In 2008, the duo was the third-placed finalist on the CMT competition Can You Duet. In October 2015, the duo cancelled all future concert appearances in the wake of Joey’s diagnosis with terminal cancer. On March 4, 2016 Joey Feek died; she was just 40 years old.
Joey and Rory believed God would give them a great story, and He did. He gave Joey+Rory a love story for the ages, one that is sure to inspire hope and faith in all who experience it.
