Some weeks back, I wrote about Joey + Rory, a Country Music Duo who often sings a song I detest, “A Bible and a Belt.” Just for the record, I still detest it.
I’ve learned a little bit more about Joey + Rory. Joey is the girl, Rory is the guy. Just by chance I came across them singing another song—this one an old religious song, “In The Garden.” This time Joey, the girl, is singing the lead.
Now I’m not a religious person but I remember my brothers and I singing this song when we would sometimes perform in church. I always kind of liked it and I really like the way Joey (Martin is her last name) sings it here, really like the jazzy style of it.
Music is so much better when you don’t detest it. You’re right. That should go without saying.
I wish Joey + Rory well. They’re going through some rough times. Joey recently gave birth to a baby with Down syndrome and just a few weeks ago had surgery for Cervical Cancer. It was caught early, so she should be OK.
Here’s Joey + Rory’s version of “In The Garden.”
I shall return here on Wednesday.
