Born To Be Your Woman

Album: Album Number Two (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • The husband and wife duo Joey and Rory Feek wrote this song with Rory's oldest daughter from his first marriage, Heidi Feek, who also wrote the track from their first album "Tonight Cowboy You're Mine" with her dad. Said Rory: "I was a single dad of two young teenage girls when Joey and I met. When we got married in the summer of 2002. In the ceremony, Joey gave rings to our girls too. Engraved inside our rings are the last few words of our marriage vows... "bound by God forever."

    Joey added: "We believe that He knew we were meant to be together, that I really was born to be Rory's woman and he was made to be my man. This song's very old-school. We love that. It seems like one of those timeless songs that could have been recorded years ago by Dolly & Porter or Loretta & Conway." (Check out our 2010 interview with Joey + Rory.)
