  • Rory Feek fulfills promise to wife Joey by attending 2017 Grammy Awards

"She's so present in my life", Rory said Tuesday on Today while discussing why he still refers to Joey in the present tense.

It was February 15, 2016 when IN native Joey Feek and her husband, Rory, watched the Grammy Awards on TV, hoping for a win.

Joey died last year at age 40 after a almost two-year battle with cervical cancer, leaving behind three young children.

On Sunday, the album won best roots gospel album at the Grammy Awards, the deeply religious duo's first win; they were nominated a year ago for best country duo/group performance for "If I Needed You". Other than that, though, he's lived a more private life than he did before Joey died.

Joey Feek may be gone, but her memory lives on.

Prue Leith: Is she Bake Off's new Mary Berry?
Her role co-presenting My Kitchen Rules, a competitive cookery series on Channel 4 last Autumn, was effectively an audition for the Bake Off job.

Oftentimes, the GRAMMY pre-telecast has moments that are as moving as those in the televised ceremony, and that was certainly true tonight. She passed away at age 40 in March of previous year.

In a non-televised segment, the Washington Post reports Rory said: 'She sang her vocals in hotel rooms while she did chemo and radiation and it finally came out a year ago, nearly exactly.

Feek said the hymns were songs his wife grew up with, according to USA Today.

"I didn't know how I would feel (after she died), but I feel her everywhere I go", he continued. "We were different. She didn't want to be a mother, and I had two little girls that I was raising on my own". "We recorded it in a studio in Nashville early in the summer - just after recovering from her first big surgery in Chicago". "Thank you so much". Her husband and duo partner, Rory Feek, chronicled her final months on his blog.

When asked how he manages to look toward the future, even after the death of his wife, he still credited Joey with getting him through the hard times.
