AllMusic Review by

Wife & husband duo Joey & Rory rose to public consciousness with a vibrant turn on the reality television show CAN YOU DUET? While they didn’t win, their tender, shimmering backwoods harmonies and honest displays of affection bewitched both country fans and judge Naomi Judd. The duo’s 2008 debut, THE LIFE OF A SONG, proves the act no fluke as they spice melodic Nashville pop with subtle flecks of bluegrass in a manner that would do the Dixie Chicks proud. Wife Joey takes the bulk of the vocals, injecting a soulful emotion into both playful anthems like single "Cheater, Cheater" and folksy ballads like "Sweet Emmylou."
