With news of a Grammy nomination on Monday, Joey Feek of the country duo Joey+Rory is more determined than ever to make it to the award show on February 15 — win or lose.
Joey has been under hospice care after ineffective treatments for stage four cervical cancer. In October, doctors gave her from six to nine months to live.
In an interview with the Tennessean, husband and band mate Rory Feek expressed his gratitude for the nod for Best Duo/Group Performance. Their rendition of If I Needed You didn't have any commercial success and the only music video was a tribute to the birth of their daughter Indiana — so it was a huge surprise to be nominated.
"Joey and I woke (Monday) morning just thankful for the chance to have another day to be together. That was enough. When you honestly don't know what tomorrow will bring, you don't think any farther than today. But hearing the news brought not only tears and smiles, it has brought us hope."
The Grammys aren't the only milestone the 40-year-old beauty hopes to witness. Aside from the upcoming holidays, Joey+Rory's hymns album is set to be released on February 14, followed by little Indiana's second birthday on February 17.
Rory — who has been documenting this very emotional journey through his blog and Facebook — said Joey holds on to hope that she will survive to see these moments:
"Joey set a personal goal (Monday) morning of being here for all three. She's so faith-filled and determined, don't be surprised if you see us sitting in the audience at the award show, holding hands and smiling when they open the ballot and read the winner's name."
We're not sure WHY these people are famous, but we are definitely here for the drama!
Alexis Ren and Jay Alvarrez first shot to social media fame back in 2015 when the Internet dubbed them one of the original examples of "relationship goals," as they shared beautiful travel content from exotic locations to Instagram and YouTube.
But we guess all the vacationing wasn't enough to maintain this relationship, because shit just got really, really real this week as the former love birds took shots at each other online!
Reports surfaced a few months back that there was trouble in various paradises for the models, but Miz Ren publicly confirmed the split this week on Twitter in a savage rant calling out not only Jay's penis size, but how the "fuckboy" allegedly ended things.
