The country music world has lost a beautiful soul.
On Friday, Joey Feek passed away after a long and difficult battle with stage IV cancer. Her husband, Rory Feek, penned a touching tribute to his wife as he revealed the sad news.
That same day, celebs took to Twitter to share their condolences for the tragic loss. Country crooner Blake Shelton and blonde beauty Carrie Underwood both posted kind words about the late Joey + Rory singer.
I am saddened by the passing of Joey Feek, but inspired by the "for better or worse" that she and Rory Feek have shown us all…..
