Artist: Rory Feek
Book: Once Upon a Farm: Lessons on Growing Love, Life, and Hope on a New Frontier
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release date: June 19

The tragic story of the married and musical duo Joey + Rory was one that the country music community was invested in deeply.  The duo splashed onto the scene through CMT's Can You Duet and through their television show and their classic country recordings, had developed a deep and lasting group of fans that adored them. When Joey lost her life in 2016 to cervical cancer, it was made all the more heartbreaking as she was a brand new mother to a little daughter named Indiana.

Now, two years later, Rory has finished a new book about his life without his soul mate.  The book follows Rory as he takes their four-year-old daughter Indiana’s hand and walks forward into an unknown future, he takes readers on his incredible journey from heartbreak to hope and, ultimately, the kind of healing that comes only through faith.

Now raising their four-year-old daughter, Indiana, alone, after Joey’s passing, Rory Feek digs deeper into the soil of his life and the unusual choices he and his wife, Joey, made together and the ones he’s making now to lead his family into the future.

From the press release:
When Rory Feek and his older daughters moved into a run-down farmhouse almost twenty years ago, he had no idea of the almost fairy-tale love story that was going to unfold on that small piece of Tennessee land . . . and the lessons he and his family would learn along the way.
A raw and vulnerable look deeper into Rory’s heart, Once Upon a Farm is filled with powerful stories of love, life, and hope and the insights that one extraordinary, ordinary man in bib overalls has gleamed along the way.
As opposed to homesteading, this is instead a book on lifesteading as Rory learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm while doing everything, at times, but farming. With frequent stories of his and Joey’s years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences.
“This isn’t a how-to book; it’s more of a how we, or more accurately, how He, God, planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined.”
