Biography

Rory Lee Feek was born in Atchison, Kansas. Inspired by Don Williams, Merle Haggard and other artists, he began playing guitar at age fifteen. He later served two tours of duty in the United States Marine Corps after high school, before moving to Dallas, Texas, where he played in nightclubs. Feek moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1995, and signed to a publishing contract. One of his first single releases as a songwriter was Collin Raye's "Someone You Used to Know", a Top Five country hit in 1999. A year later, Clay Walker reached Top Five as well with "The Chain of Love", another song that Feek co-wrote.[3]

Feek continued to write for other artists in the 2000s, including album tracks for Mark Wills, Kenny Chesney, Terri Clark, Randy Travis, and Lorrie Morgan, as well as Tracy Byrd's 2003 single "The Truth About Men".[3] In 2004, Feek achieved his first Number One as a songwriter when Blake Shelton topped the country charts with "Some Beach", which he co-wrote with Paul Overstreet.[4] Also in 2004, Feek founded the Giantslayer Records label, on which Blaine Larsen recorded two studio albums in association with BNA Records.

In 2008, Feek and his wife, Joey Martin Feek, founded a duo called Joey + Rory. They came in third place on the CMT talent show Can You Duet, and later that year signed to a recording contract with Vanguard Records.[2] Joey + Rory released their debut single "Cheater, Cheater" that year, and peaked at #30 on the country singles charts with it. That same year, Jimmy Wayne charted on the country charts with "I Will", another Feek co-write.
