A true renaissance man, Rory Feek is known as one of Nashville's premier songwriters, entrepreneurs, and out-of-the-box thinkers. He is a world class storyteller that crosses all creative mediums from music and film to books and the Internet. As a blogger, Rory shares his heart and story with the world through his thislifeilive.com blog that has over 2 million Facebook followers. The love story of he and his wife, her recent battle and loss to cancer, and his vignettes of unwavering faith and hope in the face of tragedy inspire millions of readers who follow along with each post.
As a songwriter, Rory's written multiple number-one songs, including Blake Shelton's "Some Beach", Easton Corbin's "A Little More Country Than That", and Clay Walker's "Chain of Love", and had dozens of other songs he's written recorded by Kenny Chesney, Randy Travis, Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Waylon Jennings, and many others. As an artist, Rory is one-half of the Grammy nominated country-music duo Joey+Rory. He and his wife Joey Martin toured the world, sold hundreds of thousands of records, and had their own weekly hit television show that aired all across the country on RFD-TV. Their latest album "Hymns That Are Important To Us" sold 70,000 copies the first week and debuted at number one on the Billboard album charts.
As a filmmaker, Rory just finished directing his first feature-length film, "Josephine", an epic love story set during the declining months of the Civil War, with a screenplay that he co-wrote with Aaron Carnahan. Rory has three other screenplays in process. He also writes, shoots, and edits their music videos, and is the creator of the TV shows and specials in which he and his wife appeared.
He and his 3-year-old daughter Indiana live an hour south of Nashville in an 1870's farmhouse near their family-owned diner, Marcy Jo's Mealhouse.
