My friend Mark Gregston had been raving to me about some friends of his who wrote great songs, sang them often on the Grand Ole Opry, and who were followers of Christ. So, on a recent trip to the Nashville area I made a detour south on I-65, past Franklin to the little restaurant named Marcy Jo’s which is not only owned, but staffed by Joey and her sister, Marcy. As Rory and I had breakfast with some of his neighbors, Joey was baking bread and waiting tables.
After breakfast, we drove a short way to the farm where Joey and Rory sat in their 1870′s farmhouse and talked about their life of simple living, love for each other, and love for God. It’s that literal kitchen-table conversation that you’ll hear this week on FIRST PERSON.
Check out Joey and Rory’s website here, including information about their upcoming “Bib and Buckle Fest” on their farm Saturday, June 2. If I weren’t going to be out of the country at that time, I’d be there myself in “two shakes of a lamb’s tail”.
