Recorded back in the spring of 2005, Rory revealed that the couple prayed that God would bless the songs on the album.
“At that time, we had high hopes for the record, Joey made that spring. Both Joey and I did. We prayed that God would bless those songs, and that her dream of following in her hero Dolly’s footsteps would come true, Rory shared in his most recent This Life I Live post. “But God had a different plan. Looking back years later, it was easy for Joey and me to see that God didn’t say no at the time … instead, what He said was, ‘Not right now.’”
