Rory Feek Has ‘No Desire’ to Perform in Life After Joey


As Joey Feek continues her courageous battle with Stage 4 cancer, her husband Rory Feek has opened up about what life will be like after his beloved wife is gone.

“This is the last record that Joey and I will ever get to make and the last songs we’ll ever get to sing together,” he told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “I have no desire to go on singing or performing without her,” Mr. Feek said. It’s yet another heart-wrenching twist in a tale that has captured audiences across the country music spectrum.

Joey + Rory most recently shared an uplifting message about the couple’s endeavor to shop for daughter Indiana’s winter clothes, and the child was photographed cheerfully playing with her mother in a picture widely shared across social media.

“Her mama rocked her to sleep singing them and has even taught Indy how to sing along with sign language on ‘Jesus Loves Me,'” Rory said in the interview. “Joey singing these songs is a big part of Indy’s life so far, and I know that these songs will go on to be very important to her as she grows up and is able to hear Joey still singing them to her when we play the album.”

Their new album — and apparently the last ever for Rory Feek — is titled Hymns That Are Important To Us, is scheduled to be released Feb. 12 exclusively at Cracker Barrel.

Joey Feek, meanwhile, may only have days to live. The couple will continue providing updates on their phenomenal story and we’ll have you covered here at Wide Open Country.
