Jacob&LindaGuitar4 Jacob&LindaElecMartin JacobMikePickingLinda,
Many thanks to you and Mike for spending time with Jacob and giving him something to strive for in the future.  He was amply impressed and thought it was really cool to get to spend some time with the grown-ups, most importantly, fellow enthusiasts who are so talented.  You never know what’s going to stick with a kid and give him the desire to shoot for the stars, so thank you again for taking time out of your busy day to spend some time with him.  I’ve attached a few photos of the day and a vid of Mike.
Hope to see you at Fred’s!
Best Regards,
Ruth Bethem

On the Set of The Joey+Rory Show:  Jerry Salley and Carl Jackson
Thursday, October 18th, 2012
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.

Visit The Joey + Rory Show online at http://www.thejoeyandroryshow.com, or watch Friday nights on RFD-TV.
