Joey+Rory took third place in CMT’s “Duets” competition
and were immediately signed to Sugar Hill/Vanguard records.  Their 2008
debut “The Life of the Song” featured the hit single “Cheater
Cheater.”  They followed up in 2010 with “Album Number Two” and “His and
Hers” was released in July of this year.  The duo hosts a weekly
variety show on RFD_TV, “The Joey+Rory Show” filmed entirely on their
Pottsville, Tennessee farm and community including their family-owned
café Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse.  “Joey and Rory’s A Farmhouse Christmas” was
filmed on a set built in their barn and was a featured holiday show on
RFD_TV last year.  The show was so popular a DVD was released and a
Christmas tour followed.  Joey and Rory will re-create “A Farmhouse
Christmas” for Starlite Theatre audiences this December.

With a career that spans well over 30 years, The Bellamy Brothers
have charted twenty Number-One country hits and more than fifty hit
singles, starting with their first big hit, “Let Your Love Flow,” which
topped the charts in 1975.  Other notable hits include “If I Said You
Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me,” “You Ain’t Just
Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Sugar Daddy,” “Dancin’ Cowboy,” “Do You Love as Good
as You Look, “They Could Put Me in Jail,” “For All the Wrong Reasons,”
“Get into Reggae Cowboy,” “Old Hippie, “Kids of the Baby Boom,” and
“Cowboy Beat.”  Raised in Florida, The Bellamy Brothers incorporated the
sounds of their environment into their music, adding strong elements of
rock, reggae and even rap.  While the brothers both graduated from the
University of Florida (David with a degree in psychology and Howard with
a degree in veterinary medicine), they played their first paying gigs
for fraternity parties and decided to pursue music as a career.  David
enjoyed early songwriting success when he met Jim Stafford, who recorded
David’s “Spiders and Snakes,” which sold over three million copies
providing enough money for the duo to move to Los Angeles and
concentrate on their careers.  The rest is history…and today, the
successful duo is still going strong, with over 200 tour dates a year
and millions of fans across the globe.

Starlite Theatre Managing partner John Ghirardelli said, “The Starlite
Theatre is pleased to continue its successful partnership with Larry
Black of Larry’s Country Diner/Country’s Family Reunion fame.  Fans are
packing the theatre for these shows and we are delighted to extend this
series for the holiday season.”
