Joey Feek touched many lives across the globe. She battled cancer in an incredibly dignified manner – by living her faith each difficult step of the way. The way Joey lived and died continues to inspire people.
At the Academy of Country Music Awards, Joey received yet another tribute. Before Martina McBride and Darius Rucker announced the winner of the best vocal group, the stars honored Joey Feek.
The stars recapped that Joey wasn’t just a great country singer, but an amazing mom and wife, too. Then, they asked the audience to participate.
“Of all the different ways we could honor Joey, we think that what would mean the most to Joey and her family is just one more time, for all of us, her fans who loved her, to give her a big round of applause,” Rucker said.
And the attendees did exactly that. Joey’s widow Rory wasn’t there, but his daughter Hopie was. What a wonderful, unexpected way to honor this woman.
