Joey + Rory Celebrate Unexpected Grammy Nomination: ‘God Is So Good’
In their time of struggle, Joey and Rory Feek are finding moments of hope. On Monday (Dec. 7), the 2016 Grammy Awards nominees were announced, and Joey + Rory found themselves up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance category with their song "If I Needed You."
Rory Feek shared the good news, as well as a sweet note, with fans on Facebook:
... Woke my bride up this morning with a baby in my arms and the news that our version of 'If I Needed You' was nominated for a Grammy. As her excitement and tears flowed into mine. She said, 'how can that be?'
....the song received no radio airplay ... no press ... no critical acclaim ... and the only music video we made for it was to celebrate the day our little Indiana was born.
God is so good.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
In the music video for "If I Needed You," Joey is shown preparing for the hours leading up to the birth of their daughter, Indiana Boon Feek, born in February of last year. The Feek's little girl has Down syndrome, which they weren't aware of before she entered the world.
The couple have been sharing their brave and emotional journey with the world as Joey deals with Stage 4 cancer through Rory's blog This Life I Live. As a result, numerous country artists have offered thoughts and prayers with the couple during this very difficult time.
