Sept. 22 was a good day for Rory Feek and daughter Indiana. “…somebody’s smiling in heaven,” Rory wrote in a Facebook post above a darling picture of the two of them on a horse. “Indy got to take her first ride on a horse today… and she absolutely loved it.”
But that’s not all that have the father-daughter duo beaming this week. According to a press release sent out the very same day, the movie “To Joey With Love” had “grossed more than $1.2M at the box office in just over 750 locations and generated two times the per-screen attendance average of any other film on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.” The release goes on to say the movie also serves as “the highest-attended Fathom event in the inspirational category for 2016.”
And while hundreds of thousands of Joey+Rory fans flocked to the theater to see the documentary that caused both laughs and tears, many did not. But have no fear – there will be another showing of the emotional film on Oct. 6 in theaters across the country.
“I didn’t actually have an urge to make the movies into a film,” Rory told WTHR-TV in a recent interview. “I had the urge to film our lives.”
And, Rory, we are so glad you did.
