For days that turned into months that eventually turned into a year, country music fans were emotionally invested in the story of Joey+Rory. Through a series of blog posts and videos, fan took their cruel yet beautiful trip of love and loss right along with them, from the day Joey was diagnosed with cancer to the times when Indiana’s smile was the only thing that could light up the room.
And through it all, we laughed, and oh, how we cried.
Yet, the country duo’s upcoming movie looks like it just might take our emotions for this special family to a whole new level.
Shared on the Joey+Rory Facebook page on Sept. 1, a brand-new, exquisitely edited movie trailer for “To Joey, With Love” takes fans on an emotional roller coaster of sorts, delicately taking us all back through the moments that made up one of country music’s most treasured love stories. Scheduled to play at theaters across the country on Sept. 20, the movie will now also play in theaters on Oct. 6.
Interest in their story has continued as strong as ever. In fact, their music and their spirit granted the country duo a recent CMA Award nomination for vocal duo of the year.
