Released in 2010 as the second single off of their album titled Album Number Two, “That’s Important to Me” was co-written by Joey, Rory, and Tim Johnson.
The song is one of Joey + Rory’s greatest chart successes, peaking at the 51st spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart after making a debut in the 58th slot.
Joey + Rory celebrate life’s little moments in the song’s lyrics, singing how much joy they find in “Opening the windows and letting in air. Holding hands when we’re saying a prayer.” All of these moments, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant, were important to Joey + Rory long before Joey received her cancer diagnosis.
But once they learned of Joey’s cancer, she and Rory took every chance they could to celebrate the little, but important moments they had left with one another.
