There will never be another country duo like Joey+Rory.
Granted, there will be husband and wife teams who will perform music together and collect a countless number of fans and even will be given a few awards to put on their shelves.
Yet, Joey+Rory’s fairy tale-turned-tragedy will never be replicated, which is why this recent news is so gratifying for so many fans.
Assuring that their legacy and faith-filled message has a chance to live on forevermore, Joey+Rory will be recognized during the upcoming 22nd annual Inspirational Country Music Awards.
