Joey+Rory's Rory Feek Explains the 'Power of the Plus Sign'

(Radio.com) Have you ever wondered why Joey+Rory use a plus sign? Shouldn't it be Joey & Rory? Rory Feek took to his This Life I Live blog last week (Jan. 29) to explain that choice. It all began with the pair's participation on CMT's Can You Duet.

"When we found out we had made it through the first round of auditions, they asked us what our stage name was going to be," Feek writes. "I told Joey that I think we should tell them 'Joey+Rory,' because that's what it actually was' You + Me = whatever this is going to be."

He goes on to say that one plus one does not equal two, there's something more important in the equation: "Without know it, what we were actually adding into the equation that day in 2008' was God. It was faith that we added - a willingness to trust Him and be okay with whatever He had in store. I think that's where the power is. There's nothing magical about Joey and I together. We bring our skills and talents into this union, but God brings the magic. He takes those gifts and adds in His timing and mixes it with all the years of joy and hardship and smiles and pain we've had' and He makes something bigger." Read more here.
