SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Overstock.com, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTK) today announced that the online shopping site has added county music duo Joey+Rory to the list of Overstock.com spokespersons, naming the couple as the focus of a nationwide ad campaign.
Beginning today the husband and wife team of Joey Martin and Rory Feek will be seen as the new face of Overstock.com as the company launches a new 60 second "At home with the O" ad campaign, which features two television commercials filmed at the couple's 1870's farmhouse and family restaurant near Nashville, Tenn. The first of the two commercials debuts nationally today.
"Joey and Rory are a perfect fit for Overstock.com; they represent us well and the people who shop with us," said Overstock.com's Stormy Simon, senior vice president of marketing and customer care. "They're a loving couple with strong values, and we happily welcome them to the Overstock family."
Alan Bunton, Overstock.com's creative director discovered the couple during their appearance on Country Music Television's 2008 singing competition, "Can You Duet." The couple's exposure as finalists on the show opened the door to Overstock.com.
"As I watched I couldn't help but be attracted to them," Bunton said. "They're immensely talented, but also humble and human -- a natural fit for Overstock.com and the customers we serve."
Joey+Rory join NBA all-star, Carlos Boozer and spokeswoman Briana Walker as representatives for Overstock.com.
"We're thrilled and humbled to have been singled out by Overstock.com to represent their company and their values," stated Joey+Rory. "We're honored that they recognize the value in the simplicity of our lifestyle and music and have allowed us to remain authentic."
