Joey and Rory Feek got some terrific news. On the heels of celebrating their daughter Indiana’s second birthday, they learned their album “Hymns That Are Important To Us” topped the Billboard Country Chart.
But, there was even more great news. It has also topped Billboard’s number one Contemporary Christian and Christian Video Charts. QPolitical reported that the Feeks were over the moon.
“When the label called to give us the news, I immediately took the phone in to Joey,” Rory said about the milestone. “This recording was ‘hers’ from the beginning. This is one that she has always wanted to make, and she’s worked so hard to make it happen, in spite of the difficult circumstances she is facing. As I congratulated her, she responded through tears, ‘No, Honey, this is God’s record…’”
The couple were nominated for a Grammy, but didn’t win the prize. However, they were grateful just to be nominated. Topping the Billboard Charts comes right after the Grammys and it’s possibly a better accomplishment. Millions of people now own this album. An album of hymns. These people are worshiping with the Feeks.
This family’s Christian faith and devotion to God even in the face of tragedy are something to behold. They have lived their faith during Joey’s terminal cancer diagnosis. It is not known how much time she has left, but this family is enjoying every precious minute together.
Are you planning on buying their album of hymns? Please let us know what you think.
