On the Set of The Joey+Rory Show:  Jerry Salley and Carl Jackson

Columbia, Tennessee

Acoustic country duo Joey and Rory, discovered on CMT’s Can You Duet in 2008, have their own TV show!  And I had the honor of visiting the set, filmed entirely on the grounds of their 1870s Pottsville, Tennessee farmhouse, last Thursday.  GRAMMY-Award winning songwriters Jerry Salley and Carl Jackson are scheduled to be featured on RFD-TV’s next Joey + Rory season, and I was privileged to be a part of the filming process.  Salley and Jackson each performed original tunes, and will “tell their story” for the TV show’s interview segment.

I originally met Jerry Salley when he performed at The Norris Center in Naples a few years back, and will never forget the moment I heard his song “Paper and Pen” for the first time.  Coming full circle, Salley performed “Paper and Pen” on the set.  Carl Jackson and I met at IBMA a few years ago, and after his performance Thursday I was inspired to write a few new songs on the way back to Nashville.  Jackson’s 1957 Martin brought his “In His Hands” song to life on the set, emanating a warmth that only a seasoned musician with a beautiful vintage instrument can provide.

Joey + Rory are excited to share great songwriters with their TV audience, along with reminders of a simpler life, and good ol’ fashioned country living.
