More than a year after Joey Feek died of cervical cancer, Gaither Music has recently released Joey Feek's solo album If Not For You. Now, Joey's husband has released a never before seen video of Joey Feek singing "Red," a track taken off the newly released album.
Rory writes: "In the spring of 2005, Joey and I were still newlyweds (we had only been married for three years). I was still just writing songs for a living and Joey was a solo artist, at least she wanted to be. But unfortunately, the doors on music row weren't opening for her. And the few that did open, seemed to close again right away. So, that April, we went in a small studio in Nashville and recorded an album of songs with Joey singing and me and our friend Bill McDermott behind the control board."
"She recorded beautiful ballads and touching story songs along with some fun uptempo tunes as well. She also made two music videos. This is one of them. Filmed at and around our farm with friends and family later in the summer that year, Joey was still in her twenties, working full time at horse-vet clinic..."
Joey Feek is widely known as one-half of country music duo Joey+Rory, who most recently won a GRAMMY® for their Hymns album in February. The couple captured the hearts of millions over the past few years as Rory chronicled their love story and Joey's cancer battle on his blog, This Life I Live, as well as their preparation for her passing in March 2016. But there's much more to the story: the couple met in the early 2000s, when Joey was still an aspiring country singer. They eventually fell in love, married and recorded Joey's debut album. The collection was released independently in 2005 and was made available at the duo's shows and on their website, years before they appeared on CMT's "Can You Duet" and began recording as a duo. This marks the first time the album will be widely available.
