Rory Feek Opens Up About Losing His Wife, Joey, and Honoring Her With His New Documentary on “Today”

On the Today show this morning (Sept. 6), Rory Feek says it’s been six months and two days since his wife, Joey, lost her battle with cancer. While a day doesn’t go by that Rory isn’t inspired by his beautiful bride and duet partner, he’s hoping their story of love, faith and hope can inspire others in his new documentary, To Joey, With Love.

“It was amazing, actually, when Joey passed away in March and we came home to our farm, I couldn’t remember my wife [being] healthy—all those years of marriage and all that life that she had—until I started going through the footage and then I saw her come back to life and I was able, in making the film, to watch her life happen in real time again. And it was amazing,” says Rory about the making of the documentary.

To Joey, With Love will we debut in select theaters across the country on Sept. 20 and Oct. 6. Check local listings for times and venues. In addition to the film, Rory will release a book, This Life I Live, on Valentine’s Day 2017.
