What a sad situation.

On Tuesday, Blake Shelton opened up about fellow country singer Joey Feek‘s intense battle with cancer.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, The Voice judge shared:

“The courage that they as a family have displayed. It’s inspirational. It’s sad, but it’s special at the same time … to see what they’re going though as a family and what’s happening with Joey, what can you say?”

Tissues, anyone?!

Miz Feek was first diagnosed with stage IV cervical cancer back in 2014 and recently decided to stop pursuing medical treatments. Since ending her course of treatment, the Joey + Rory band member has entered hospice care.

Previously, the brunette beauty wrote:

“Sometimes there just aren’t enough surgeries – or doctors ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ or chemotherapies ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ or prayers. And you have to wipe the tears from your cheeks and say the words that you were hoping to never have to say. . .Enough.”

This is just so tragic.

Our hearts go out to Joey’s husband and bandmate Rory Feek and their loved ones during this incredibly tough time.
