Rory to Take the Stage a Year After Joey’s Passing

Rory Feek to Take the Stage a Year After Joey’s Passing

Joey and Rory‘s Rory Feek is heading back to the stage a year after his wife Joey passed away from cancer.   She shows will take place September 8th and 9th at his family farm.

I just feel a responsibility like I should,” he said during a press event to announce Oct. 20 as Heal the Music Day in Nashville. “I should just get on stage and see what’s there. What’s in store. What would I say? What would I sing if I were there by myself?” Previously, Feek had said he would not perform without Joey by his side.

Heal the Music Day is a way for artists to give back by donating a small percentage of their day’s revenues to the Music Health Alliance, a nonprofit that helps self-employed members of the music industry find health insurance or benefits. This is the same organization Feek has come to know well because it aided in the treatment of his wife after he emailed them.

“Needless to say, we were in Chicago a few days later,” he says. “My wife had the treatment that she wanted.”

September 8th and 9th is also Joey’s birthday weekend, and in honor of her, Rory is giving 100% of the profits from the shows. My guess is, he’ll be getting so much back from those who can’t wait to hear him sing again.
