Hymns That Are Important To Us features 13 tracks that "capture the words and melodies that were the soundtrack to Joey's childhood," said Rory. "It's the one Joey has always wanted to make - filled with the hymns she grew up with." The album provides an intimate glimpse into the husband and wife's life-changing year and includes "When I'm Gone," a song that has special meaning to the couple, who approached Cracker Barrel about the partnership.
"We recorded the album in a studio in Nashville early in the summer - just after recovering from [Joey's] first big surgery in Chicago," Rory said. "And then she did her vocals where she could...in hotel rooms, our house, wherever and whenever she felt up to singing."
"Joey and Rory have been a part of the Cracker Barrel family for many years, playing at our Home Office and releasing their sixth studio album in our stores in 2014," said Senior Marketing Manager Julie Ulmer. "When they approached us about partnering on this album, we were honored to have the opportunity to support the project and share their music again, while also giving to a charity they care so deeply about."
Since 2005, Cracker Barrel has released albums with a wide variety of artists, some of which have debuted in top spots on a range of Billboard's charts. Recent partnerships include the brand's first pop albums with a cappella group Pentatonix and "Fight Song" singer Rachel Platten, as well as industry staples Michael W. Smith and Alabama. Cracker Barrel's music program presents a unique opportunity for the company to connect with consumers through an array of musical genres and artists, providing not only the music, but also unique experiences, such as Pentatonix's surprise performance at a Nashville-area Cracker Barrel last November.
