ACM Top New Vocal Duo Joey & Rory will be hosting the 2nd Annual Bib & Buckle Fest scheduled for Saturday, June 5th in Pottsville, TN which is about 45 minutes south of Nashville. This years event is being called the Un-Official CMT Can You Duet Season I Reunion. Joey & Rory will be joined by cast members Caitlin & Will and Kate & Kacey as well as other members from the season.
“We had been doing this for a few years before it got it’s official name. It was originally created as a homecoming concert and a day of family fun, food and music for all of our neighbors,” says Rory. “When people actually started coming in from as far as Michigan, Florida and even Washington State, we decided it needed to be a special yearly event.”
“When you travel all over the country singing for people like we do,” adds Joey, “It’s so
neat to be able to have them come to us and to share our own community with them.” Joey says, “and the name Bib & Buckle fest? Well, it’s kind of obvious I guess. I’ve always worn a belt buckle with my jeans and Rory loves his Carhartt bib overalls.”
The pickin’ begins at 3:00 p.m. and the eatin’ at 5:00 p.m. Live music will continue into the evening with the hosts’ headlining performance beginning at 7:00 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn-chairs or quilts for seating to fully enjoy a fun family evening outside in the grass and under the stars.
“This year, for fun, we decided to make it a “Can You Duet” Season 1 reunion and invite some of the other artists that were on the TV show with us in 2008”, says Rory. “They are all so talented and honestly, we never get to see each other any more. This is a chance for us to all reconnect, and even more…for our fans to connect with the other artists they loved on the show also.”
