We've all heard stories about waitresses who have dreams of country stardom but not from waitresses who own their own restaurant. Alexandria, Ind., native Joey Martin (Feek) is just that -- a restaurant owner/waitress, as well as a singer-songwriter. Living on a farm in rural Tennessee, just outside of Nashville, and owning and operating a meat and three restaurant are not easy tasks, which may be why Joey secretly carries a knife in her back pocket everywhere she goes. Joey and her songwriter husband of six years, Rory, met at a songwriters' night at the Bluebird Cafˇ in Nashville and since that time have always sung together, whether performing at songwriters' nights or at home. It just made sense to the couple to drive the short distance to audition in front of CMT's Can You Duet judges. Their traditional country style is swayed by timeless country artists such as Dolly Parton, Joey's mother June Martin, Patty Loveless, Emmylou Harris and George Strait.
