Gospel music and country duo Joey + Rory kind of go hand in hand, don't y'all think?

Before Joey passed away in March 2016, her dream was to record an album full of her favorite hymns, so that's exactly what she and her husband, Rory, did. Hymns That Are Important To Us was released February 2016 and quickly reached the top spot on the Country Albums and Christian Albums charts. It peaked at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

They recorded the album while she was receiving treatment for the ovarian cancer that ultimately took her life. Joey recorded her parts wherever and whenever she could, sometimes in her hotel room!

The album included twelve hymns that Joey + Rory sang on a regular basis at their shows on their farm, but never recorded, including "How Great Thou Art".

The song has been covered by just about every country singer, but the way these two sing it is unlike any other. Joey's beautiful delivery in addition to Rory's harmony makes their version picture perfect in every way. 

The day their album was released, they also released videos of live performances of each track at one of their previous farmhouse concerts.

Enjoy the performance below. You won't see anything else like it.
