"I don’t feel one ounce less married or less committed to Joey or less with her, even," the 51-year-old musician shared. "I just think I’m going to spend my life talking about my wife. ... And that’s not really a part of grieving, it’s a part of celebrating such an amazing person."

Rory's love of Joey is a big theme in his new book, This Life I Live, which will be released on Valentine's Day.

"I have been blessed with the chance to not only be part of a beautiful story with Joey, but also have the chance to tell the parts about me and my life that weren’t so beautiful," he said. "I’m trying to be honest and share the good and the bad and the ugly and the really beautiful. And maybe some other folks could see themselves in there somewhere and be encouraged."

Rory and Joey had one child together, 2-year-old daughter Indiana. Before Joey died, the couple known in the music industry and to fans worldwide as Joey + Rory, released one final album, Hymns That Are Important to Us,, which is nominated for Best Roots Gospel Album at the 2017 GRAMMYs.
