Rory Feek Reveals Reason Joey Never Stopped Singing During Cancer Battle

Homecoming Magazine

During her chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Joey Feek continued to record new music. 

For the 40-year old artist, music is a passion. From the age of six, Joey Feek knew that she had a special talent. She made her stage debut singing Dolly Parton’s “Coat Of Many Colors” and from there on out she made her dreams of becoming a Grammy nominated singer a reality.

Joey + Rory have been strong throughout this unimaginable fight with cancer. During Joey’s treatments at the Cancer Treatment Center in Newnan, Georgia the couple recorded vocals for their latest album.

Rory told People Magazine about the experience. 

“She would sing into a microphone that we had set up in our room,” Rory told People. “It wasn’t easy, but it was important to her. Those are moments I’ll never forget.”

Hymns That Are Important to Us will be available on February 12, 2016 and the couple hopes to touch others with their music one last time. These will inevitably be Joey’s last recordings since her decision to stop treatment and spend her remaining time surrounded by loved ones. 

According to People Magazine, Joey + Rory hope their new album can help heal. 

“Both Joey and I only hope that these songs and these words can touch people and bring some joy and light to them in their times of need, the way that they have to us,” explained Rory. “Selfishly, I hope the whole world gets to discover what an amazing singer and woman my beautiful wife is, and that her music outlives not only the both of us, but also our children’s children’s children.”
