Just over a year after Joey Feek died of cervical cancer, the country singer's legacy is being honored once again with a new album.

Joey gained fame as a country artist making music alongside her husband, Rory Feek, in the country duo Joey + Rory, however this posthumous release is a collection of her various solo efforts that give her talented voice a whole new life.
