    Joey Feek, one half of Joey + Rory passed away this afternoon from cervical cancer at the age of 40.

    Such a beautiful and talented lady.

    Not a fan, but 40 is too damn young to go.

    The pictures of her saying goodbye to her child are just heartbreaking. Such a sad story.

    I've been dreading this day as she was one of my favorite singers... She has a recording you should listen to called "When I'm Gone" which can be found on YouTube... She was a beautiful wife and mother and the love between she and her husband Rory Feek couldn't be ignored... He was a big eared, overall wearing country dude who is a helluva songwriter and has had several well known compositions by major artists in his folder.. I really feel bad for him to lose such a big part of his life and the little baby will never know her mother which is even sadder.........RIP Joey....JH in Va.

    The couple seemed to have an idyllic relationship and life before the tragedy of cancer struck. As most of you know I lost my son to cancer a couple of years ago, he was a little over ten years older than Joey but cancer is something you just can't cope with, no way to fight, or understand it. Joey was just a wonderful woman, a great talent, and someone I will miss seeing on the Telly. My condolences to Rory and his family.

    My dad is fighting cancer. Yesterday my mum told me she was in the car on Saturday and heard a lovely song. She pulled over to hear it, and then the DJ explained it was by Joey, that the song was about her battle, and that she had died. It all touched my mum - a huge country fan since the 70s - a great deal.

    My mum isn't online, so I need to track the song down and make a copy for her.

    My Bride and I watched a tv show hosted by Bill Gaither that featured the duo. By the time it was over Rory & Joey felt like old friends. Such a sad loss all the way around.
