A FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS” JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Santa Says “All Good Country Boys and Girls
Should Tune In Friday, December 23 & Saturday, December 24
to RFD-TV for Great New Christmas Programming”
Nashville, TN (December 20, 2011) – Award-winning husband/wife duo Joey+Rory have made the most of the holiday season. They’ve not only turned their critically-acclaimed A Farmhouse Christmas album into a multi-city tour, they’ve also captured this sometimes traditional, sometimes quirky Christmas magic for television, called “Country’s Family Reunion Presents Joey+Rory’s A Farmhouse Christmas.” The hour-long special, produced by Gabriel Communication’s “Country’s Family Reunion” division, made its debut in late November, will re-air on RFD-TV December 23 at 8:00 p.m. and December 24 at 5:00 A.M. and 11:00 P.M. CST.** Santa says “All good country boys and girls should tune in for great Christmas programming!” For more information on this special, or to get your own copy for that special country fan on your Christmas list, please visit http://www.cfrvideos.com.
“We fell in love with Joey and Rory when they were musical guests on ‘Larry’s Country Diner,’ and ‘Country’s Family Reunion’” said Larry Black, producer of both shows. “They are such a sweet couple – so engaging and so warm. When they came up with the idea to do a television special surrounding their new Christmas album, I said, ‘if you can pull it off, we’ll do it.’ The show they came up with smacks of the old and resonates with the new.”
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. “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 television, so we’ll have to go visit someone and catch it one these nights!” laughs Rory Feek.
The television show is sponsored by Roper Western Apparel & Footwear. For more information on Joey+Rory, please visit www.Joey+Rory.com.
