The news has given the couple a new sense of hope as Joey continues her fight with cancer. In an interview with The Tennessean, Rory shares just how much the nomination means to him and Joey:
"Joey and I woke [Monday] morning just thankful for the chance to have another day to be together. That was enough. When you honestly don’t know what tomorrow will bring, you don’t think any farther than today. But hearing the news brought not only tears and smiles, it has brought us hope.”
Rory also took to the couple's Facebook page to express him and Joey's thankfulness over the news, saying they were in absolute disbelief when they first heard about the nomination.
Throughout her battle with cancer, Joey has remained strong and determined to see important milestones in the next few months. Prior to the Grammys news, Joey had made goals to see the release of her and Rory's album of hymns on February 14 and their daughter Indiana's second birthday on February 17.
But since hearing about her and Rory's Grammy nomination, Joey has made a new goal...to live to see the Grammys on February 15.
"Joey set a personal goal (Monday) morning of being here for all three [milestones]," Rory says. "She’s so faith-filled and determined, don't be surprised if you see us sitting in the audience at the award show, holding hands and smiling when they open the ballot and read the winner’s name."
We hope that Joey can reach all of her goals, and knowing how strong she is, we have no doubt that she can.

Our prayers continue to go out to Joey, Rory, and their families.
