NASHVILLE, Nov. 1, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory wanted more to life, so they chose less. To Joey, With Love is the true story of life, love and hope that never dies, chronicling the couple's journey as they simplified their lives, welcomed their daughter Indiana and Joey fought cancer, all while putting their hope in something far greater. The film is available from Provident Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment on DVD December 20, on iTunes December 9th and On Demand December 20th from Starz Digital. Movie event licenses are available on November 14.
The intimate and deeply touching documentary follows Joey and Rory as they simplified their lives in preparation for their daughter Indiana, who was born with Down syndrome, and eventually as Joey fought against cancer. The couple's strength captured the hearts of millions through Rory's blog, This Life I Live, where Rory shared their story. Special features with the film include a previously unreleased song from Joey+Rory, "In The Time That You Gave Me," as well as a family slideshow and video clips, "I Am Not A Mistake," and "Not To Die, But To Live," created by Rory.
To Joey, With Love, presented nationwide by Fathom Events, Provident Films and Hickory Films, grossed more than $1.7 million. The film had two encores on October 6 and October 17, with a limited-theater screening that began on October 28.
In their music career, Joey+Rory recorded eight studio albums for Vanguard Records and Farmhouse Recordings and charted three singles on Hot Country Songs. In 2008, the duo was the third-placed finalist on the CMT competition Can You Duet, and received the Academy of Country Music's Top New Vocal Duo award in 2010. In October 2015, the duo cancelled all future concert appearances in the wake of Joey's diagnosis with terminal cancer. On March 4, 2016 Joey Feek died; she was just 40 years old.
