Despite their struggles, Rory and Joey Feek have a lot to be thankful for.
The country duo celebrated their daughter Indiana’s second birthday last week and are making the most of every day together as Joey battles terminal cancer. On Tuesday, the couple got more good news, as they learned their album, Hymns That Are Important to Us, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country music charts.
“When the label called to give us the news I immediately took the phone in to Joey,” Rory said in a press release about the milestone. “This recording was ‘hers’ from the beginning. This is one that she has always wanted to make, and she’s worked so hard to make it happen, in spite of the difficult circumstances she is facing. As I congratulated her, she responded through tears, ‘No, Honey, this is God’s record….’”
The album, which was released on Feb. 12, also topped Billboard’s Contemporary Christian Album and Christian Video charts.
Joey opened up in January about making the album, which the couple began recording in Nashville last year, shortly after her first surgery.
"A lot has taken place in a year's time, but through it all, these songs have given me such strength," said the 40-year-old singer, who began hospice care in November, in a press release. "They've given me such hope, and they give me something to look forward to."
On Tuesday, Rory also shared a happy memory on Facebook, posting a blog entry from last March where he recapped the family’s vacation to Hawaii, where the singer was stationed with the Marine Corps after graduating high school.
“Last February, right around this time, we took a family trip together to Hawaii celebrate my upcoming birthday,” he wrote. “What a difference a year makes. The only thing that's changed is everything. And nothing.”
