On May 28, 2013 it was announced that country duo Joey and Rory have partnered with Crosley Radio, which is a manufacturer of antique reproductions of consumer electronics with modern technology. The radio company will be the presenting sponsor of Joey and Rory’s new radio show that debuts on Saturday, July 6 on Nashville’s 650 AM WSM. The show is aptly titled “Joey + Rory Radio Show,” and will be the weekly lead in to the live radio broadcast of the world famous Grand Ole Opry. Their show will feature old radio clips from the Opry’s 80 year history, including performances from the television show, live acoustic performances, recipe tips, inspirational stories, and some of the duo’s favorite country music today and yesterday. The show is centered around their daily routine from their farmhouse in Pottsville, Tennessee.
With their partnership, Crosley Radio will also be their sponsor for the third season of the couple’s popular weekly television program, “The Joey+Rory Show,” which airs on RFD-TV. The new season airs on Friday, July 5. Crosley Radio is also a proud sponsor of Joey+Rory’s almost sold out “5th Annual Bib & Buckle Fest,” that takes place on June 1.
States Bo LeMastus, CEO of Crosley Radio, “We are tickled to death to be part of Joey+Rory’s radio show and tv show. Everything they do is just so sincere and genuine, and their music is so inspiring. Their brand and what they represent is exactly what our brand is all about. The minute they brought up the idea of Crosley being a sponsor we said ‘YES!”
“We’re thrilled, and honored, to have the chance to partner with Crosley Radio and 650 AM WSM for this new radio show,” Rory says. “It’s something we’ve been wanting to do for awhile. We don’t have a tv at our farm, so gathering around our old radio/record player in the evenings to listen to music is one of our favorite things to do. This is a pretty natural extension of who we are and what we’re about I think”.
“Everything we do is centered around a simpler time when families took more time together to sit around the table for meals, or gather together around a television or radio to watch or listen to a their favorite program” Joey says. “And like our television show” Rory adds, “our new radio show will be taped here at our farmhouse and it will have the feel of vintage radio shows from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s, but updated with some of today’s best music and programming.”
Joey and Rory’s upcoming album, Inspired, Songs of Faith and Family will be released through a partnership with the Gaither Music Group, and will be available on CD and DVD. The new album will feature new songs of faith, with several of them written or co-written by the duo. They have also incorporated their unique arrangements for such classic gospels, “Amazing Grace,” “Are You Washed in the Blood,” and “Leave It There.” Fans can pre-sale the CD and DVD by visiting www.gaither.com, iTunes, and at your local Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores this summer.
