The Horse Nobody Could Ride

Album: Album Number Two (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • With the help of songwriters David Banning and Jenny Yates, Rory Feek wrote this song about his wife, who is the Joey in Joey + Rory. Said Rory: "Did I mention that my wife loves horses? She's a lot like the wild mustang in this story. You can't 'make' her do something or 'force' her to go your way. She's all about trust and respect. Like her mother, she's her own woman, and stubborn as they come. But if you earn her respect, and her trust, she'll do anything in the world for you, without you even asking."
