  • YOUR DAILY BLOG?
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:53.070
  • - RORY FEEK: WELL, I'D LIKE TO THINK IT'S
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:56.170
  • BECAUSE SOMEHOW THE WORLD HAS FALLEN IN LOVE WITH
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:02:00.170
  • OUR LOVE STORY, MY WIFE AND I'S.
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:03.210
  • AND THE STORY THAT WE'VE TOLD AND THE STORY THAT
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:07.150
  • WE'RE CONTINUING TO TRY TO TELL.
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:10.180
  • I THINK THAT'S A BIG PART OF IT, I GUESS.
  • 00:02:10.200 --> 00:02:12.040
  • - SO WHEN DID YOUR STORY KIND OF COME TO
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:14.230
  • THE FOREFRONT?
  • 00:02:14.250 --> 00:02:16.160
  • I KNOW Y'ALL DID THE DUET TOGETHER, BUT BEFORE THAT
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:23.270
  • WERE YOU SHOOTING STUFF AND MAKING PICTURES AND
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:26.170
  • ALL THAT STUFF OR WERE YOU JUST WRITING
  • 00:02:26.190 --> 00:02:28.180
  • AND SINGING?
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:30.270
  • - WELL, I WAS A SONGWRITER.
  • 00:02:30.290 --> 00:02:32.160
  • I HAD MADE MY LIVING WRITING SONGS HERE IN
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:35.000
  • NASHVILLE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, AND I WAS A SINGLE
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:37.230
  • FATHER OF 2 KIDS, 2 LITTLE GIRLS.
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:39.260
  • AND I'D BEEN A SINGLE FATHER FOR A LONG TIME,
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:42.240
  • AND THEN I MET JOEY, AND WE GOT MARRIED WHEN THE
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:45.150
  • GIRLS WERE TEENAGERS.
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:48.040
  • AND JOEY WAS A SINGER AND SHE HAD DREAMS OF BEING
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:51.210
  • THE NEXT DOLLY PARTON.
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:53.200
  • BUT IT DIDN'T REALLY WORK OUT THAT WAY FOR HER.
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:56.040
  • THE DOORS KEPT CLOSING.
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:58.040
  • SO I LIVE ON A FARM AND JOEY JOINED US AT THIS
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:03:01.290
  • FARM ABOUT AN HOUR SOUTH OF NASHVILLE, AND SO TIME
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:05.030
  • WENT ON AND THROUGH A SERIES OF EVENTS WE
  • 00:03:05.050 --> 00:03:10.060
  • OPENED A LITTLE RESTAURANT THAT SHE
  • 00:03:10.080 --> 00:03:12.070
  • WORKED AT, AND THEN SOMEBODY CAME IN AND THEY
  • 00:03:12.090 --> 00:03:17.050
  • RECOGNIZED SOMETHING IN OUR STORY THAT WE DIDN'T
  • 00:03:17.070 --> 00:03:19.070
  • RECOGNIZE WHICH WAS THAT WE SHOULD BE
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:21.030
  • SINGING TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.240
  • WE SHOULD BE A DUO TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.030
  • WE HAD BEEN MARRIED FOR FIVE YEARS AND NEVER
  • 00:03:24.050 --> 00:03:25.240
  • CONSIDERED IT.
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:26.220
  • - REALLY?
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:28.190
  • - BUT THIS GUY SAW IT AND HE ENCOURAGED US TO
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:31.190
  • TRY OUT FOR A TV SHOW WHICH WAS SPECIALLY FUNNY
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:34.050
  • BECAUSE WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A TV AT HOME.
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:36.290
  • SO IT WAS LIKE AMERICAN IDOL BUT FOR COUNTRY
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:40.080
  • MUSIC AND FOR DUOS.
  • 00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:42.210
  • SO I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT IT BECAUSE I WAS IN OVERALLS,
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:45.090
  • FIRST OFF.
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:47.050
  • - YEP.
  • 00:03:47.070 --> 00:03:49.130
  • - I WAS 42 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:51.100
  • MY WIFE WAS 32, AND I THOUGHT FOR SURE I WAS
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:53.090
  • GOING TO END UP BEING ONE OF THOSE SORT OF B ROLL
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:55.230
  • OUT TAKES AND BE EMBARRASSED AND ASHAMED,
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:04:00.040
  • BUT THE WORLD MIGHT GET TO DISCOVER MY BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:04.130
  • WIFE, AND IT WAS WORTH IT.
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:07.020
  • WHAT I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THOUGH WAS THAT THIS GUY
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:12.130
  • DID KNOW OR HE SEEMED TO KNOW WAS THAT PEOPLE THEY
  • 00:04:12.150 --> 00:04:17.050
  • REALLY LONG TO SEE A GOOD STORY.
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:18.290
  • AND WE WERE LIVING ONE.
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:21.060
  • AND SO A CAREER STARTED OUT OF NOWHERE WE GOT TO
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:23.250
  • SING AND TRAVEL THE WORLD AND WE DIDN'T WIN THAT
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:26.090
  • SHOW, BUT WE TOOK THIRD PLACE AND IT JUST CREATED
  • 00:04:26.110 --> 00:04:28.070
  • THIS AVALANCHE OF OPPORTUNITIES.
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:31.080
  • SO THAT'S KIND OF HOW IT ALL STARTED.
  • 00:04:31.100 --> 00:04:33.150
  • - ABOUT WHAT YEAR WAS THAT?
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:36.090
  • - THAT WAS IN 2008, THE BEGINNING OF 2008.
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:40.120
  • AND SO WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME.
  • 00:04:40.140 --> 00:04:44.150
  • WE TRAVELED AND WE WON A BUNCH OF AWARDS AND MADE
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:47.120
  • SOME ALBUMS AND MUSIC VIDEOS.
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:51.110
  • BUT ONE OF THE UNIQUE THINGS WE DID IS WE DID
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:54.120
  • IT ALL AT HOME ON OUR FARM.
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:56.190
  • WE MADE ALMOST EVERY MUSIC VIDEO WE EVER MADE
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:58.130
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:05:00.210
  • WE MADE THE MUSIC MOST OF THE TIME WAS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:04.130
  • IN TIME WE'D BE MAKING OUR OWN TELEVISION SHOW
  • 00:05:04.150 --> 00:05:07.230
  • AT HOME, SORT OF LIKE THIS BUT IN OUR BIG BARN.
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:11.030
  • SO WE WERE ABLE TO GROW AND REACH AN AUDIENCE
  • 00:05:11.050 --> 00:05:14.100
  • FROM HOME WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL.
  • 00:05:14.120 --> 00:05:18.040
  • AND IT WAS JUST INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:05:18.060 --> 00:05:19.290
  • WE WERE KIND OF IN AWE OF IT, AND SOMEWHERE IN THE
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:22.130
  • MIDST OF THAT WHICH IS SORT OF WHERE I'M GETTING
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:25.120
  • TO MY WIFE GOT PREGNANT AND WE DECIDED TO QUIT
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:27.230
  • ALL THE MUSIC STUFF.
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.080
  • - SOMEHOW.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.020
  • - SOMEHOW.
  • 00:05:30.040 --> 00:05:31.010
  • WE'LL EXPLAIN IT TO YOU LATER.
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:31.210
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:32.160
  • - TELL ME ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.050
  • WELL, WHEN I SAY SOMEHOW IT'S BECAUSE WHEN JOEY
  • 00:05:34.070 --> 00:05:37.170
  • AND I GOT MARRIED SHE HAD ONE THING THAT SHE TOLD
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:40.210
  • ME WAS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN AND THAT WAS SHE
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:43.060
  • WAS NEVER GOING TO HAVE A BABY NO MATTER WHAT.
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:46.150
  • SHE SAID I'LL TAKE YOUR NAME.
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:49.150
  • I'M GOING TO BE A GREAT WIFE AND I'LL SERVE YOU
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:52.100
  • AND LOVE YOU IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE, BUT I WILL
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:54.240
  • NEVER HAVE CHILDREN.
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:57.110
  • IT WAS JUST SOMETHING SHE WAS AFRAID OF FOR A
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:05:59.080
  • NUMBER OF REASONS.
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:01.150
  • SO WHEN I SAY SOMEHOW I MEAN IT IN THE WAY LIKE
  • 00:06:01.170 --> 00:06:03.120
  • GOD TURNED HER HEART AND MOVED A MOUNTAIN, AND SO
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:08.130
  • WE WERE GETTING READY TO HAVE A BABY, AND WE
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:14.170
  • FINISHED DOING OUR TELEVISION SHOWS AND
  • 00:06:14.190 --> 00:06:16.160
  • DECIDED TO TAKE A YEAR OFF.
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:18.230
  • AND WHEN WE TOOK THAT YEAR OFF WE WERE JUST
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:21.100
  • GOING TO HOMESTEAD AND HAVE A NEW BABY.
  • 00:06:21.120 --> 00:06:23.240
  • AND I DECIDED TO START FILMING OUR LIVES EVERY
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:27.000
  • DAY AND ALSO WRITING A BLOG.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:29.010
  • SO ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I DID WAS TOOK
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:32.050
  • A CAMERA OUT.
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:33.270
  • JOEY IS ABOUT 8 MONTHS PREGNANT, AND I SAT IT ON
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:36.010
  • A TRIPOD AND WE HELD HANDS AND WALKED OUT INTO
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:39.000
  • THE FIELD.
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:41.230
  • AND OUR BACK FIELD WE WALKED 200 YARDS OUT AND
  • 00:06:41.250 --> 00:06:44.060
  • THERE'S A ROW OF SASSAFRAS TREES BACK
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:47.010
  • THERE WITH SOME OLD CEMETERY STONES FROM
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:50.290
  • WHERE THE PEOPLE WHO BUILT THE FARM IN THE
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:53.000
  • 1870'S ARE BURIED.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:55.110
  • AND WE WALKED OUT THERE AND WE WALKED BACK, AND
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:58.020
  • WHILE WE WERE WALKING I DID A LITTLE VOICE OVER,
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:01.250
  • AND WE KIND OF IMAGINED THAT THIS WAS THE
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:05.080
  • BEGINNING OF OUR JOURNEY, AND WE SAID WE BELIEVE
  • 00:07:05.100 --> 00:07:08.030
  • GOD'S GOING TO GIVE US A GREAT STORY.
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:10.160
  • EVEN THOUGH WE WERE TAKING A YEAR OFF AND A
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:12.220
  • NEW BABY WAS COMING, WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS IN
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:15.080
  • STORE BUT WE BELIEVED SOMETHING AMAZING WAS
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:17.080
  • GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:19.120
  • - SO THAT WAS BEFORE -- - THAT WAS RIGHT WHEN I
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:21.100
  • STARTED WRITING A BLOG BECAUSE I'D STOPPED
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:24.150
  • WRITING SONGS SO I STARTED WRITING A BLOG
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:27.180
  • WHICH I'D NEVER DONE BEFORE AND STARTED FILMING
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:31.100
  • AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE DID IS WE
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:33.290
  • TOOK THAT WALK TO THE CEMETERY.
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:35.200
  • THAT WAS IN JANUARY OF 2014.
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:38.200
  • WITHIN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME WE WOULD HAVE OUR
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:43.190
  • BABY AND OUR BABY WOULD HAVE DOWN SYNDROME WHICH
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:46.140
  • WE HAD NO IDEA, HAD THE BABY AT HOME.
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:48.210
  • JOY WOULD BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, AND WE'D GO
  • 00:07:48.230 --> 00:07:51.050
  • THROUGH A LONG JOURNEY, AND TWO YEARS LATER
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:53.060
  • ALMOST EXACTLY I WOULD BE MAKING THAT WALK BACK
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:58.290
  • FROM THE CEMETERY AND ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAD THE
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:01.260
  • CAMERA GOING THE DAY THAT WE BURIED JOEY IN
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:04.170
  • THAT CEMETERY.
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:07.120
  • AND THAT'S HOW WHAT ENDED UP THE DOCUMENTARY TO
  • 00:08:07.140 --> 00:08:09.290
  • JOEY WITH LOVE HAPPENED.

  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:45.030
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:58.170
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:19:11.190
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:19:11.190 --> 00:19:20.240
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:19:20.240 --> 00:19:28.140
  • - SHE WAS VERY DIFFERENT, WASN'T SHE?
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:30.140
  • SHE WAS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:32.120
  • SHE COULD SING LIKE AN ANGEL BUT SHE --
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:34.290
  • - WOULD IT BE SHARE TO SAY SHE MARCHED TO THE BEAT OF A
  • 00:19:35.010 --> 00:19:39.030
  • DIFFERENT DRUMMER?
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:41.210
  • - COMPLETELY.
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:43.030
  • WE WERE THE SAME IN A LOT OF WAYS BUT COMPLETELY
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:46.000
  • DIFFERENT IN OTHER WAYS.
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:47.180
  • SHE WAS INCREDIBLY GROUNDED.
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:49.230
  • SHE KNEW WHAT WAS IMPORTANT IN LIFE.
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:51.270
  • THE MOMENT I MET HER SHE KNEW.
  • 00:19:51.290 --> 00:19:53.260
  • AND THE SAME THINGS WERE IMPORTANT TO HER THE DAY
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:56.180
  • SHE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:59.040
  • WHAT'S IMPORTANT TODAY SOMETIMES CHANGES FROM
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:03.050
  • WHAT I THOUGHT IT WAS LAST WEEK OR LAST MONTH.
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:05.190
  • I'M STILL LEARNING, AND SHE PROVIDED AN
  • 00:20:05.210 --> 00:20:08.020
  • INCREDIBLE GROUNDING SYSTEM FOR ME AS A MAN
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:12.160
  • AND FOR OUR MARRIAGE AND OUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:12.180 --> 00:20:14.210
  • AND ME ON THE OTHER LAND, LIKE SHE WASN'T MUCH OF A
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:17.270
  • RISK TAKER SO I MIGHT DO A LITTLE MORE OF
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:21.150
  • THAT THAN HER.
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:23.210
  • I MIGHT SAY WHAT IF WE TURN OUR BARN INTO A
  • 00:20:23.230 --> 00:20:26.190
  • CONCERT HALL OR A TV STUDIO.
  • 00:20:26.210 --> 00:20:29.160
  • AND THAT'S A LONG BIG REACH FOR HER.
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:33.240
  • AND YET SHE WILLING TO GO DOWN WHATEVER PATH
  • 00:20:33.260 --> 00:20:36.220
  • THAT WAS.
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:38.270
  • AND SOMEHOW TOGETHER WE MADE A WHOLE PERSON.
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:40.270
  • OUR FIRST DATE WAS ON VALENTINE'S DAY IN 2002.
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:44.230
  • JOEY WORKED AT A HORSE VET CLINIC AND I WAS
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:46.240
  • A SONGWRITER.
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:50.000
  • I WAS ALSO A SINGLE DAD WITH 2 TEENAGE DAUGHTERS
  • 00:20:50.020 --> 00:20:52.250
  • THAT I'D BEEN RAISING ON MY OWN FOR
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:55.190
  • ABOUT TEN YEARS.
  • 00:20:55.210 --> 00:20:58.100
  • JOEY WAS AN ASPIRING SINGER FROM INDIANA THAT
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:21:00.260
  • MOVED TO NASHVILLE IN 1998, AND A COUPLE YEARS
  • 00:21:00.280 --> 00:21:04.180
  • AFTER THAT SAW ME SINGING AT THE BLUEBIRD CAFÉ.
  • 00:21:04.200 --> 00:21:07.260
  • SHE SAID THAT SITTING THERE THAT NIGHT WATCHING
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:10.250
  • AND LISTENING TO ME PLAY MY SONGS, SHE KNEW I WAS
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:13.280
  • THE ONE SHE WAS GOING TO SPEND THE REST OF HER
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:16.140
  • LIFE WITH.
  • 00:21:16.160 --> 00:21:18.060
  • AND SHE EVEN TOLD ME SO.
  • 00:21:18.080 --> 00:21:21.010
  • TWO MONTHS AFTER OUR FIRST DATE WE GOT ENGAGED
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:23.150
  • AND TWO MONTHS AFTER THAT MARRIED.
  • 00:21:23.170 --> 00:21:25.260
  • WE HAD NO IDEA AT THE TIME THE AMAZING JOURNEY
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:28.260
  • THAT GOD HAD IN STORE FOR US.
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:31.110
  • THE LITTLE CAFÉ THAT JOEY WOULD OPEN AND RUN WITH
  • 00:21:31.130 --> 00:21:33.290
  • MY SISTER MARCI OR THE INCREDIBLE MUSIC CAREER
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:36.260
  • WE'D HAVE TOGETHER IN COMING YEARS.
  • 00:21:36.280 --> 00:21:41.120
  • - HOW HAS THE LAST TWO YEARS SINCE JOEY'S
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:45.060
  • PASSING, HOW HAVE YOU CHANGED IN THOSE TWO YEARS?
  • 00:21:45.080 --> 00:21:49.020
  • - WELL, ANOTHER THING THAT REALLY SURPRISED ME
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:54.080
  • WITH JOEY IS THAT SHE NEVER MADE A LIST OF WHAT
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:59.220
  • SHE WANTED ME TO DO OR BE.
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:04.070
  • IF I WERE IN MY LAST DAYS AND MONTHS, I WOULD HAVE
  • 00:22:04.090 --> 00:22:09.200
  • SAID STAYED UP LATE AT NIGHT TRYING TO WRITE
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:14.130
  • DOWN THINGS AND SAYING SPEAK MY NAME EVERY DAY
  • 00:22:14.150 --> 00:22:16.250
  • TO THE BABY.
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:19.060
  • IF I WOULD HAVE KNOWN ME THE WAY JOEY DID I WOULD
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:22.230
  • HAVE SAID MAKE SURE YOU DO THE LAUNDRY EVERY
  • 00:22:22.250 --> 00:22:26.110
  • COUPLE DAYS.
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:28.050
  • MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE GROCERY STORE.
  • 00:22:28.070 --> 00:22:30.060
  • WHATEVER IT IS, AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN AFRAID
  • 00:22:30.080 --> 00:22:34.110
  • BECAUSE I WAS LIKE A NORMAL HUSBAND THAT SHE
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:37.160
  • TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:39.090
  • SHE WAS AMAZING.
  • 00:22:39.110 --> 00:22:41.140
  • AND NOW I WAS GOING TO BE LEFT WITH THOSE
  • 00:22:41.160 --> 00:22:45.060
  • RESPONSIBILITIES AND ALSO IN CHARGE OF A 2 YEAR
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:49.220
  • OLD, AND SHE JUST LOOKED AT ME AND SAID YOU'RE
  • 00:22:49.240 --> 00:22:53.140
  • GOING TO DO GREAT.
  • 00:22:53.160 --> 00:22:57.210
  • AND I THINK BECAUSE SHE BELIEVED IN ME SO MUCH
  • 00:22:57.230 --> 00:23:02.260
  • WHEN I CAME HOME I'VE ACTUALLY DONE OKAY.
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:06.150
  • - YES.
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:08.170
  • - BECAUSE A LOT OF THAT STUFF THAT WAS IN HER
  • 00:23:08.190 --> 00:23:10.270
  • BEFORE IS ACTUALLY IN ME NOW, AND NOW I THINK A
  • 00:23:10.290 --> 00:23:14.070
  • LOT OF HER IS STILL THERE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:23:14.090 --> 00:23:18.050
  • WE LIVE OUR LIFE SO MUCH THE SAME WAY WE LIVED IT
  • 00:23:18.070 --> 00:23:23.250
  • BEFORE SHE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:23:23.270 --> 00:23:26.190
  • IT'S ACTUALLY STRANGE BECAUSE IT'S BEEN TWO
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:29.070
  • YEARS, AND YET I FEEL JUST AS MARRIED TO HER AS
  • 00:23:29.090 --> 00:23:32.210
  • I DID THEN.
  • 00:23:32.230 --> 00:23:35.170
  • I FEEL HER PRESENCE JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:39.000
  • I FEEL LIKE WE'RE RAISING A BABY TOGETHER.
  • 00:23:39.020 --> 00:23:41.190
  • SHE'S IN OUR LIFE JUST AS MUCH, IN A DIFFERENT WAY.
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:54.140
  • - GOOD MORNING.
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.160
  • I BRING YOU SOME COFFEE.
  • 00:23:57.180 --> 00:23:59.190
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:23:59.210 --> 00:24:01.040
  • - YOU'RE WELCOME.
  • 00:24:01.060 --> 00:24:02.290
  • HOW ARE YOU THIS MORNING?
  • 00:24:03.010 --> 00:24:04.170
  • - CHEERS.
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:06.060
  • - HOW ARE YOU THIS MORNING?
  • 00:24:06.080 --> 00:24:07.170
  • - GOOD.
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:08.220
  • - HOW IS THE BABY?
  • 00:24:08.240 --> 00:24:09.260
  • - SHE'S STILL ASLEEP.
  • 00:24:09.280 --> 00:24:11.100
  • - INDI, HI.
  • 00:24:11.120 --> 00:24:14.250
  • ARE YOU READY TO WAKE UP?
  • 00:24:14.270 --> 00:24:16.060
  • ARE YOU READY TO WAKE UP?
  • 00:24:16.080 --> 00:24:18.220
  • HUH?
  • 00:24:18.240 --> 00:24:21.110
  • ARE YOU READY?
  • 00:24:21.130 --> 00:24:22.150
  • YOUR PAPA IS READY.
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:27.230
  • GOODNESS.
  • 00:24:27.250 --> 00:24:30.150
  • MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:24:30.170 --> 00:24:32.170
  • GOOD MORNING.
  • 00:24:32.190 --> 00:24:34.170
  • GOOD MORNING.
  • 00:24:34.190 --> 00:24:40.220
  • OH.
  • 00:24:40.240 --> 00:24:44.110
  • I LOVE YOU THIS MORNING.
  • 00:24:44.130 --> 00:24:48.260
  • - SO THE BELIEF THAT SHE HAD IN YOU IT SURPRISED
  • 00:24:48.280 --> 00:24:51.200
  • EVEN YOU.
  • 00:24:51.220 --> 00:24:53.190
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:24:53.210 --> 00:24:55.230
  • I MEAN, I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT.
  • 00:24:55.250 --> 00:24:57.280
  • I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT.
  • 00:24:58.000 --> 00:25:00.080
  • YEAH, SO IT SURPRISED ME, AND I THINK --
  • 00:25:00.100 --> 00:25:04.070
  • - AND YOU SURPRISED YOURSELF.
  • 00:25:04.090 --> 00:25:06.250
  • - I SURPRISED ME.
  • 00:25:06.270 --> 00:25:07.190
  • SO FAR I'M DOING OKAY.
  • 00:25:07.210 --> 00:25:08.270
  • - IT'S ALMOST LIKE WHAT SHE WAS ABLE TO TAP INTO
  • 00:25:08.290 --> 00:25:12.130
  • IS REALLY A KINGDOM UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD IS
  • 00:25:12.150 --> 00:25:15.030
  • LOOKING AT ALL OF US SAYING YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:25:15.050 --> 00:25:18.190
  • TO BE OKAY.
  • 00:25:18.210 --> 00:25:20.160
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO
  • 00:25:20.180 --> 00:25:23.010
  • ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED TO DO.
  • 00:25:23.030 --> 00:25:26.080
  • AND IT'S ALMOST LIKE JOEY WAS ABLE TO HAVE ONE FOOT
  • 00:25:26.100 --> 00:25:29.150
  • IN THE KINGDOM MIND SET AND WAS ENCOURAGING YOU
  • 00:25:29.170 --> 00:25:35.200
  • IN A WAY THAT -- I'M WITH YOU.
  • 00:25:35.220 --> 00:25:39.110
  • I COULDN'T HAVE DONE -- I'M SURPRISED AT THE IDEA
  • 00:25:39.130 --> 00:25:45.200
  • THAT -- LOOK, I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GIVE
  • 00:25:45.220 --> 00:25:48.170
  • YOU THAT SAME ADVICE.
  • 00:25:48.190 --> 00:25:50.150
  • LET'S JUST PUT IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:25:50.170 --> 00:25:52.060
  • I WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT THAT WAY.
  • 00:25:52.080 --> 00:25:54.190
  • FOR HER TO BE PREPPING YOU AND SETTING YOU UP,
  • 00:25:54.210 --> 00:25:56.270
  • BUT IT'S WHAT GOD IS TRYING TO TEACH US ALL
  • 00:25:56.290 --> 00:25:58.150
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:25:58.170 --> 00:26:00.260
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT YOU, RORY, IS WHAT I
  • 00:26:00.280 --> 00:26:06.200
  • THINK YOUR POSITION TO DO IN A VERY UNIQUE WAY IS
  • 00:26:06.220 --> 00:26:13.180
  • TAKE JOURNEYS THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW WERE COMING,
  • 00:26:13.200 --> 00:26:19.030
  • LOOK AT THEM, COMMUNICATE ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:26:19.050 --> 00:26:23.220
  • YOU KNOW, YOUR LIFE IS UNIQUE.
  • 00:26:23.240 --> 00:26:27.170
  • EVERYBODY'S LIFE IS UNIQUE, BUT YOU HAVE ONE
  • 00:26:27.190 --> 00:26:30.030
  • OF THE MORE UNIQUE ONES THAT I'VE BEEN AROUND.
  • 00:26:30.050 --> 00:26:34.150
  • - HE'S GOT SUCH AN ANOINTING TO TELL IT.
  • 00:26:34.170 --> 00:26:36.140
  • - TO TELL THE STORY.
  • 00:26:36.160 --> 00:26:38.080
  • - IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:26:38.100 --> 00:26:39.280

  • AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THIS, ON THIS BROADCAST,

  • LIKE YOU HAD RED CAMERAS SHOOTING THIS THING.
  • 00:27:50.290 --> 00:27:53.280

  • - I, YOU KNOW, SO WE WENT TO INDIANA NOT LONG
  • 00:29:56.280 --> 00:30:02.050
  • AFTER JOEY'S-- WE GOT THE RESULTS OF SOME FURTHER
  • 00:30:02.070 --> 00:30:06.170
  • CANCER TESTING AFTER JOEY'S LAST ROUND OF
  • 00:30:06.190 --> 00:30:09.260
  • CHEMO AND RADIATION AND SURGERIES THAT IT HAD
  • 00:30:09.280 --> 00:30:13.080
  • CONTINUED SPREADING.
  • 00:30:13.100 --> 00:30:15.060
  • AND WE DECIDED NOT TO DO ANYMORE TREATMENTS AND
  • 00:30:15.080 --> 00:30:19.000
  • JUST COME HOME AND LIVE OUT HER DAYS,
  • 00:30:19.020 --> 00:30:20.280
  • SO WE WENT TO INDIANA.
  • 00:30:21.000 --> 00:30:22.260
  • WE WENT HOME JUST FOR A COUPLE DAYS.
  • 00:30:22.280 --> 00:30:24.230
  • SHE WAS JUST GONNA GO BE WITH HER FAMILY IN THE
  • 00:30:24.250 --> 00:30:27.290
  • FARMHOUSE SHE GREW UP IN AND REALLY JUST GO

  • GONNA LIVE THAT OUT AT HOME UNTIL THE END.
  • 00:30:36.290 --> 00:30:42.290
  • BUT WHEN SHE WAS AT HOME IN INDIANA,
  • 00:30:43.010 --> 00:30:46.060
  • SHE HAD FORGOTTEN HOW MUCH SHE LOVED IT,
  • 00:30:46.080 --> 00:30:50.010
  • AND IT FELT SO GOOD TO BE THERE.
  • 00:30:50.030 --> 00:30:53.080
  • AND SHE HAS THREE SISTERS,
  • 00:30:53.100 --> 00:30:57.050

  • 00:30:57.070 --> 00:30:59.130
  • WITH HER MOTHER AND HER FATHER,
  • 00:30:59.150 --> 00:31:02.160

  • AND ALL THE NIECES AND NEPHEWS,
  • 00:31:04.200 --> 00:31:07.020
  • AND SHE ASKED ME CAN WE STAY THERE? CAN WE STAY?
  • 00:31:07.040 --> 00:31:11.020
  • AND YOU KNOW, I ONLY WANT WHAT SHE WANTS.
  • 00:31:11.040 --> 00:31:13.250
  • IF THAT'S WHAT SHE WANTS THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
  • 00:31:13.270 --> 00:31:16.000
  • AND WE STAYED THERE FOR FIVE MONTHS.
  • 00:31:16.020 --> 00:31:17.220
  • THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS,
  • 00:31:17.240 --> 00:31:19.170
  • WE MOVED INTO A HOUSE ACROSS THE POND FROM BILL
  • 00:31:19.190 --> 00:31:22.050
  • AND GLORIA GAITHER, A LITTLE HOUSE THAT THEY
  • 00:31:22.070 --> 00:31:24.240
  • OWN, AND JOEY HAD A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE WINDOW

  • VIEW OF THE POND AND THE BLACK SWANS AND THE DEER.
  • 00:31:27.140 --> 00:31:32.050

  • TREATMENTS AND KEPT FIGHTING,
  • 00:32:04.010 --> 00:32:06.100
  • BUT INSTEAD SHE CHOSE TO COME HOME;
  • 00:32:06.120 --> 00:32:10.290
  • NOT TO DIE BUT TO LIVE AND SPEND WHATEVER PRECIOUS
  • 00:32:11.010 --> 00:32:16.050
  • TIME SHE HAD LEFT WITH THE PEOPLE SHE LOVED.

  • HER HOMETOWN IN INDIANA TO BE WITH HER MOTHER AND

  • FATHER AND HER THREE SISTERS.
  • 00:32:33.240 --> 00:32:37.000

  • WE SPENT SO MUCH TIME JUST BEING TOGETHER.
  • 00:33:21.000 --> 00:33:26.000
  • IT WAS THE STRANGEST THING BECAUSE HER FAMILY
  • 00:33:26.020 --> 00:33:30.060
  • WAS CLOSE BY, AND IT WAS ME AND THE BABY,
  • 00:33:30.080 --> 00:33:33.090

  • OVERALLS AND SHIRTS.
  • 00:33:35.290 --> 00:33:37.210
  • AND SHE HAD A PACK'N'PLAY NEXT TO A LITTLE BED
  • 00:33:37.230 --> 00:33:39.170
  • I WAS SLEEPING ON IN THIS LITTLE ROOM.
  • 00:33:39.190 --> 00:33:42.220
  • AND THEN ACROSS THE HOUSE WAS A BIGGER ROOM WHERE
  • 00:33:42.240 --> 00:33:45.150
  • JOEY WAS AND THEN A BED THAT HER SISTER
  • 00:33:45.170 --> 00:33:47.250
  • WHO WAS A NURSE SLEPT IN.
  • 00:33:47.270 --> 00:33:52.020
  • AND WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH, AND YET IT,
  • 00:33:52.040 --> 00:33:55.240
  • I MEAN HANDS DOWN WAS THE GREATEST MOST SPECIAL
  • 00:33:55.260 --> 00:33:59.100
  • TIME OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:33:59.120 --> 00:34:01.230
  • IN ALL OF OUR LIVES BECAUSE LIFE
  • 00:34:01.250 --> 00:34:04.130
  • GOT CUT DOWN TO THE BONE IN THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:34:04.150 --> 00:34:07.070
  • LIKE WHAT REALLY MATTERED WAS UPON US.
  • 00:34:07.090 --> 00:34:10.190
  • AND WE HAD THE GREATEST TIME.
  • 00:34:10.210 --> 00:34:13.010
  • LIKE IT WAS FUNNY BECAUSE HER SISTERS AND ALL OF
  • 00:34:13.030 --> 00:34:15.120
  • US, WE'D GET IN OUR PAJAMAS AT 3:00 O'CLOCK
  • 00:34:15.140 --> 00:34:17.270
  • BECAUSE WE COULDN'T WAIT TO JUST ALL BE TOGETHER,
  • 00:34:17.290 --> 00:34:20.230
  • AND JOEY WANTED TO WATCH THE MINI-SERIES THE BIBLE
  • 00:34:20.250 --> 00:34:25.190
  • ON-- OR WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE.
  • 00:34:25.210 --> 00:34:28.040
  • OR SHE WANTED TO WATCH SOME SHOW,
  • 00:34:28.060 --> 00:34:30.060
  • OR SET AND TALK, OR DO A PUZZLE,
  • 00:34:30.080 --> 00:34:31.260
  • AND WE JUST WANTED TO BE TOGETHER.
  • 00:34:31.280 --> 00:34:33.270
  • AND IT WAS STRANGE THAT SUCH A HARD TIME CAN BE
  • 00:34:33.290 --> 00:34:36.270
  • THE GREATEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:34:36.290 --> 00:34:40.090
  • I COULDN'T REALLY SEE PAST IT.
  • 00:34:40.110 --> 00:34:42.290
  • SO I DIDN'T GO HOME TO TENNESSEE FOR FIVE
  • 00:34:43.010 --> 00:34:45.100
  • MONTHS, AND I COULDN'T REALLY IMAGINE WHAT THAT
  • 00:34:45.120 --> 00:34:48.220
  • DRIVE WOULD BE LIKE, OR WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO
  • 00:34:48.240 --> 00:34:52.170
  • GET HOME AND TO BUILD A LIFE, SO I DIDN'T SPEND
  • 00:34:52.190 --> 00:34:56.180
  • A LOT OF TIME THINKING ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:34:56.200 --> 00:34:59.070
  • I MOSTLY TRIED TO BE AS PRESENT AS POSSIBLE IN
  • 00:34:59.090 --> 00:35:02.030
  • THAT MOMENT. BY THE TIME WE DID GO HOME,
  • 00:35:02.050 --> 00:35:05.200
  • SHE WAS SO READY TO GO HOME AND I WAS READY.
  • 00:35:05.220 --> 00:35:10.120
  • AND SO I THINK, I THINK GOD KNEW THE TIMING THAT
  • 00:35:10.140 --> 00:35:16.250
  • WE NEEDED , GIVE ME ENOUGH TIME AWAY SO THAT
  • 00:35:16.270 --> 00:35:19.130
  • WHEN I CAME HOME, IT WAS NEW,
  • 00:35:19.150 --> 00:35:21.240
  • SHE ALSO I THINK MAYBE KNEW LET'S LET THIS
  • 00:35:21.260 --> 00:35:25.240
  • HAPPEN AWAY FROM OUR HOUSE SO THAT
  • 00:35:25.260 --> 00:35:28.220
  • WHEN WE COME HOME...
  • 00:35:28.240 --> 00:35:35.180
  • ONE OF THE NEAT THINGS WAS WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:35:35.200 --> 00:35:39.130
  • THE PERSON YOU LOVE DWINDLE AWAY IN FRONT OF
  • 00:35:39.150 --> 00:35:43.190
  • YOU, IT'S SO, IT'S SUCH A CHANGE THAT BY THE TIME
  • 00:35:43.210 --> 00:35:50.200
  • SHE PASSED AWAY AND I CAME HOME,
  • 00:35:50.220 --> 00:35:53.100
  • I COULDN'T REMEMBER THE PERSON THAT I MARRIED OR
  • 00:35:53.120 --> 00:35:55.250
  • THE PERSON THAT I TOURED AND PLAYED SHOWS WITH,
  • 00:35:55.270 --> 00:35:59.100
  • OR THAT I SPENT ALL OF THOSE YEARS WITH.
  • 00:35:59.120 --> 00:36:01.200
  • I COULD ONLY REMEMBER THE WOMAN WHO WAS PASSING AWAY.
  • 00:36:01.220 --> 00:36:08.230
  • AND THAT WAS REALLY WHERE THE DOCUMENTARY CAME FROM
  • 00:36:08.250 --> 00:36:11.170
  • IS WE STARTED LOOKING THROUGH ALL THE FOOTAGE
  • 00:36:11.190 --> 00:36:13.270
  • AND THERE SHE WAS FILLED WITH LIFE AND ALL THAT
  • 00:36:13.290 --> 00:36:17.160
  • LIFE THAT HAPPENED AT OUR FARMHOUSE.
  • 00:36:17.180 --> 00:36:19.200
  • AND I THINK MAYBE SHE KNEW THAT WHEN WE GOT
  • 00:36:19.220 --> 00:36:22.080
  • HOME WE WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THAT AND FIND HER.

  • WHAT DID YOU WANT, WHAT ARE YOU REALLY SAYING TO
  • 00:38:23.060 --> 00:38:25.280
  • THAT VIEWING AUDIENCE?
  • 00:38:26.000 --> 00:38:28.080
  • - I THINK MAYBE I WOULD WANT THEM TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:38:28.100 --> 00:38:33.210
  • WHAT I EXPERIENCED, WHICH IS HOPE.
  • 00:38:33.230 --> 00:38:37.040

  • 00:38:37.060 --> 00:38:39.130
  • EVEN THROUGH TRAGEDY, EVEN THROUGH DIFFICULT
  • 00:38:39.150 --> 00:38:41.280
  • TIMES AND UNANSWERED PRAYERS,
  • 00:38:42.000 --> 00:38:49.070
  • OR THAT PRAYERS GET ANSWERED MAYBE THE WAY
  • 00:38:49.090 --> 00:38:51.010
  • YOU WEREN'T HOPING THEY WOULD,
  • 00:38:51.030 --> 00:38:53.020
  • THAT THERE IS HOPE. AND I FELT IT.
  • 00:38:53.040 --> 00:38:56.030
  • I FEEL IT STILL.
  • 00:38:56.050 --> 00:38:57.170
  • AND I HOPED THAT IN WATCHING THE DOCUMENTARY
  • 00:38:57.190 --> 00:39:00.270
  • THAT IT CAME TOGETHER ENOUGH TO WHERE THEY
  • 00:39:00.290 --> 00:39:03.210
  • COULD SEE THAT IN JOEY AND ME AND THE PEOPLE
  • 00:39:03.230 --> 00:39:06.290
  • AROUND US AND FEEL IT IN THEIR OWN LIVES.
  • 00:39:07.010 --> 00:39:10.040
  • - SO YOU MADE A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT HOPE
  • 00:39:10.060 --> 00:39:13.220
  • OUT OF MATERIALS THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:39:13.240 --> 00:39:19.070
  • PERCEIVE IS THE OPPOSITE OF HOPE.
  • 00:39:19.090 --> 00:39:21.160
  • - THAT'S GOOD. YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:39:21.180 --> 00:39:23.160
  • I WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT BUT THAT'S TRUE. YEAH.
  • 00:39:23.180 --> 00:39:26.250

  • SHE IS SO IN LOVE WITH THAT BABY,
  • 00:39:46.030 --> 00:39:48.090
  • SHE COMES TO ME AND DOES THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF
  • 00:39:48.110 --> 00:39:50.160

  • BABIES. THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:40:08.200 --> 00:40:11.040
  • AND THEN AS I FILMED AND AS WE LIVED OUR LIFE,

  • WE FIND SOME HOPE IN IT.

  • SHE WASN'T EATING ALL OF HER PEAS AND CORN.
  • 00:45:18.110 --> 00:45:21.040

  • 00:45:28.130 --> 00:45:30.170
  • - SO THE FARM HAS NOW, YOU'VE FINALLY KIND OF
  • 00:45:30.190 --> 00:45:34.260
  • PICKED YOURSELF UP BY THE BOOTS AND STARTED
  • 00:45:34.280 --> 00:45:39.110
  • HOLDING CONCERTS THERE.
  • 00:45:39.130 --> 00:45:41.000
  • TELL US A LITTLE BIT OF THAT WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:45:41.020 --> 00:45:43.170
  • - WELL, IT'S BEEN TWO YEARS SINCE JOEY PASSED
  • 00:45:43.190 --> 00:45:45.210
  • AWAY AND THIS PAST FALL, I DECIDED TO GET BACK ON
  • 00:45:45.230 --> 00:45:52.130
  • STAGE AND SEE HOW THAT WOULD FEEL WITHOUT HER.
  • 00:45:52.150 --> 00:45:57.100
  • I WASN'T SURE ABOUT IT, SO I MEAN IT'S KIND OF HARD.
  • 00:45:57.120 --> 00:46:02.120
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY MEN IN OVERALLS WHO LIVE
  • 00:46:02.140 --> 00:46:05.220
  • ON A FARM LOOK ACROSS THEIR DRIVEWAY AND
  • 00:46:05.240 --> 00:46:08.000
  • SEE A CONCERT HALL.
  • 00:46:08.020 --> 00:46:10.070
  • BUT IT LAID EMPTY FOR TWO YEARS AND I FOUND MYSELF
  • 00:46:10.090 --> 00:46:15.030
  • JUST CONSTANTLY THINKING WHY HAS GOD GIVEN US THAT
  • 00:46:15.050 --> 00:46:18.070
  • IF I'M NOT GONNA USE IT?
  • 00:46:18.090 --> 00:46:20.230
  • SO I ASKED JOEY'S DADDY, I WENT HOME TO INDIANA
  • 00:46:20.250 --> 00:46:24.030
  • WITH THE BABY AND I ASKED HIM, I SAID WHAT
  • 00:46:24.050 --> 00:46:28.160
  • WOULD YOU THINK IF I GOT BACK ON STAGE?
  • 00:46:28.180 --> 00:46:35.270
  • HE'S PRETTY PROTECTIVE, AND HE ALSO,
  • 00:46:38.230 --> 00:46:45.260
  • HE LOVES HIS DAUGHTERS, SO I KIND OF EXPECTED HIM
  • 00:46:45.280 --> 00:46:49.050
  • TO SAY OH, IT'S BEEN SO SOON,
  • 00:46:49.070 --> 00:46:51.160
  • ONLY TWO YEARS OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:46:51.180 --> 00:46:54.170
  • BUT INSTEAD HE SAID YOU KNOW,
  • 00:46:54.190 --> 00:46:58.070
  • JOEY FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU BY WATCHING YOU HOLD
  • 00:46:58.090 --> 00:47:01.220
  • YOUR GUITAR AND SING SONGS AT A SONG WRITER NIGHT.
  • 00:47:01.240 --> 00:47:04.270
  • THAT'S THE GUY SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH.
  • 00:47:04.290 --> 00:47:07.040
  • SHE WOULD WANT YOU TO. AND SO I DID.
  • 00:47:07.060 --> 00:47:11.050
  • I GOT BACK ON STAGE AND WE'D DONE IT A FEW TIMES
  • 00:47:11.070 --> 00:47:14.060
  • NOW, AND IT FEELS PRETTY GOOD.
  • 00:47:14.080 --> 00:47:17.210
  • WE'VE ALSO KIND OF LIKE THIS WEEK,
  • 00:47:17.230 --> 00:47:20.160
  • WE PUT A BIG SCREEN UP BEHIND THE STAGE.
  • 00:47:20.180 --> 00:47:23.160
  • - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:47:23.180 --> 00:47:24.210
  • THAT'S A WINDOW, THAT'S NOT A SCREEN.
  • 00:47:24.230 --> 00:47:26.240
  • A BEAUTIFUL WINDOW.
  • 00:47:26.260 --> 00:47:28.050
  • - A BIG WINDOW. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:28.070 --> 00:47:30.050
  • WE PUT A BIG SCREEN UP ON THE STAGE AND SO WE CAN
  • 00:47:30.070 --> 00:47:33.070
  • SHOW VIDEOS, HOME VIDEOS, WE CAN SHOW VIDEOS OF MY
  • 00:47:33.090 --> 00:47:36.220
  • WIFE IS ABLE TO STILL PARTICIPATE IN THE SHOWS,
  • 00:47:36.240 --> 00:47:39.090
  • WE GET TO HEAR HER SING AND SHARE,
  • 00:47:39.110 --> 00:47:42.090
  • SO IT FEELS GOOD, IT FEELS RIGHT.
  • 00:47:42.110 --> 00:47:44.270
  • AND I WASN'T SURE BUT I'VE ENJOYED IT.
  • 00:47:44.290 --> 00:47:48.150
  • IT FEELS LIKE A NEW EXTENSION OF STORYTELLING
  • 00:47:48.170 --> 00:47:51.260
  • THAT I DIDN'T KNOW. FOR A LONG TIME,
  • 00:47:51.280 --> 00:47:56.240
  • I WAS REALLY ONLY ON STAGE BECAUSE MY WIFE
  • 00:47:56.260 --> 00:47:59.220
  • LOVED IT AND I WANTED TO BE BESIDE HER.
  • 00:47:59.240 --> 00:48:03.190
  • BUT FOR SOME REASON GOD WANTS ME TO GET BACK ON
  • 00:48:03.210 --> 00:48:06.230
  • STAGE AND FIND MY OWN WAY, AND I'M TRYING.
  • 00:48:06.250 --> 00:48:10.190
  • - MATT: BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:48:10.210 --> 00:48:11.200
  • - ONE DAY AT A TIME.
  • 00:48:11.220 --> 00:48:13.020
  • ARE YOU GONNA HAVE A GOOD CRY...
  • 00:48:13.040 --> 00:48:16.250
  • PUNCH A HOLE IN THE WALL...
  • 00:48:16.270 --> 00:48:19.110
  • ARE YOU GONNA DRINK THE WHISKEY DOWN...
  • 00:48:19.130 --> 00:48:23.040
  • TILL YOU CAN'T STAND UP AT ALL...
  • 00:48:23.060 --> 00:48:25.230
  • ARE YOU GONNA BLAME THE WOMAN...
  • 00:48:25.250 --> 00:48:29.170
  • OR ADMIT YOU PLAYED A PART...
  • 00:48:29.190 --> 00:48:32.250
  • WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THAT BROKEN HEART...
  • 00:48:32.270 --> 00:48:39.280
  • ARE YOU GONNA FIND A STRANGER...
  • 00:48:40.000 --> 00:48:44.050
  • AND HAVE A ONE-NIGHT STAND...
  • 00:48:44.070 --> 00:48:46.220
  • ARE YOU GONNA LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF...
  • 00:48:46.240 --> 00:48:50.170
  • BE AS HONEST AS YOU CAN...
  • 00:48:50.190 --> 00:48:53.050
  • THESE CHOICES THAT YOU'RE MAKING...
  • 00:48:53.070 --> 00:48:57.050
  • THEY TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE...
  • 00:48:57.070 --> 00:49:00.200
  • WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THAT BROKEN HEART...
  • 00:49:00.220 --> 00:49:07.020
  • - LET'S END THIS PARTICULAR SEGMENT WITH
  • 00:49:07.040 --> 00:49:10.100
  • SOMETHING THAT COULD BE CONSIDERED HUMOROUS.
  • 00:49:10.120 --> 00:49:13.080
  • WHY DO I KNOW A PHRASE CALLED "SOME BEACH
  • 00:49:13.100 --> 00:49:16.170
  • SOMEWHERE"? WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT?
  • 00:49:16.190 --> 00:49:19.070
  • - WELL, I WROTE A SONG WITH PAUL OVERSTREET.
  • 00:49:19.090 --> 00:49:22.100
  • DO YOU KNOW PAUL?
  • 00:49:22.120 --> 00:49:23.210
  • PAUL'S A GREAT SONG WRITER,
  • 00:49:23.230 --> 00:49:24.290
  • COUNTRY SONG WRITER, AND HE'S WRITTEN ALL KINDS OF
  • 00:49:25.010 --> 00:49:27.100
  • FAITH AND FAMILY SONGS.
  • 00:49:27.120 --> 00:49:29.120
  • HE'S VERY FAMOUS FOR IT.
  • 00:49:29.140 --> 00:49:30.260
  • HE WROTE "I COME FROM A LONG LINE OF LOVE",
  • 00:49:30.280 --> 00:49:35.000
  • AND "FOREVER AND EVER AMEN",
  • 00:49:35.020 --> 00:49:36.280
  • SO I DREAMED OF MEETING PAUL OVERSTREET ONE DAY
  • 00:49:37.000 --> 00:49:39.260
  • WHEN I MOVED TO NASHVILLE,
  • 00:49:39.280 --> 00:49:41.100
  • AND I THOUGHT BECAUSE MY HEART WAS THE SAME WAY,
  • 00:49:41.120 --> 00:49:43.170
  • I'M GONNA WRITE AN AMAZING SONG WITH HIM.
  • 00:49:43.190 --> 00:49:45.280
  • WE'RE GONNA WRITE SOME INCREDIBLE
  • 00:49:46.000 --> 00:49:47.040
  • FAMILY AND FAITH SONGS.
  • 00:49:47.060 --> 00:49:49.100
  • - THAT'S A FAMILY SONG.
  • 00:49:49.120 --> 00:49:51.130
  • - SO WE DID. WE WROTE SOME.
  • 00:49:51.150 --> 00:49:54.040
  • THE FIRST ONE WAS CALLED "YOU NEVER GET TOO OLD TO
  • 00:49:54.060 --> 00:49:57.150
  • DO IT" AND THAT ONE HASN'T DONE THAT WELL.
  • 00:49:57.170 --> 00:49:59.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:49:59.170 --> 00:50:01.070
  • BUT THEN WE WROTE "SOME BEACH",
  • 00:50:01.090 --> 00:50:03.070
  • AND THAT'S BEEN A BIG HIT ACTUALLY.
  • 00:50:03.090 --> 00:50:06.010
  • - THANK GOD!
  • 00:50:06.030 --> 00:50:08.110
  • - THE VIDEO--
  • 00:50:09.160 --> 00:50:10.170
  • - I LOVE YOU MAN!
  • 00:50:10.190 --> 00:50:11.250
  • - THE VIDEO WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING.
  • 00:50:11.270 --> 00:50:14.170
  • - MAYBE IT'S STILL IN THE WORKS.
  • 00:50:14.190 --> 00:50:16.110
  • - MAYBE YOU AND I CAN DO A DUET ON THAT ONE.
  • 00:50:16.130 --> 00:50:18.100
  • - WE OUGHT TO DO THAT.
  • 00:50:18.120 --> 00:50:19.290
  • ANYWAY, WE WROTE A SONG CALLED "SOME BEACH" WHICH
  • 00:50:20.010 --> 00:50:23.000
  • IS REALLY ABOUT DREAMING ABOUT BEING ON A BEACH
  • 00:50:23.020 --> 00:50:27.020
  • SOMEWHERE, AND IT'S GOT A LOT OF HUMOR IN IT,
  • 00:50:27.040 --> 00:50:29.060
  • AND IT BECAME A BIG HIT FOR BLAKE SHELTON,
  • 00:50:29.080 --> 00:50:31.240
  • SO IT ACTUALLY IS THE REASON THAT WE HAVE A
  • 00:50:31.260 --> 00:50:35.150
  • CONCERT HALL BECAUSE WHEN SOME BEACH BECAME A BIG
  • 00:50:35.170 --> 00:50:38.270
  • HIT, MY WIFE LET ME BUILD SOME BARN AT OUR FARM,
  • 00:50:38.290 --> 00:50:42.170
  • AND IN THAT BARN WE ENDED UP IN TIME CREATING A TV
  • 00:50:42.190 --> 00:50:46.060
  • SHOW AND THEN A CONCERT HALL SO THAT SONG'S
  • 00:50:46.080 --> 00:50:48.260

  • - I LOVE IT.
  • 00:50:50.170 --> 00:50:52.050
  • - LISTEN TO IT IF YOU HAVEN'T.
  • 00:50:52.070 --> 00:50:53.150
  • - SOME BEACH SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:50:53.170 --> 00:50:54.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:50:54.260 --> 00:50:58.010

  • TELEVISION BEFORE, AND I'VE NEVER INTRODUCED
  • 00:51:00.130 --> 00:51:02.200
  • A GUY IN OVERALLS.

  • WHAT AN AMAZING STORYTELLER YOU ARE, RORY.
  • 00:51:04.090 --> 00:51:07.150
  • WHAT AN AMAZING THING.
  • 00:51:07.170 --> 00:51:09.010
  • I'LL GIVE YOU THE FINAL WORD ON THIS.
  • 00:51:09.030 --> 00:51:12.190
  • - WELL, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR SHARING
  • 00:51:12.210 --> 00:51:14.010

  • THROUGH OUR LIFE.
  • 00:51:27.010 --> 00:51:28.220
  • THAT SAYS SO MUCH THAT YOU INVITE PEOPLE IN
  • 00:51:28.240 --> 00:51:33.090

  • - WELL, HE'S SHOWN HIS GOODNESS TO ME, AND I,
  • 00:51:46.240 --> 00:51:50.110
