“I’m sorry you are not feeling good. I’ve loved you for years. I know you have often done my songs and I have heard you are a big fan. But we have something in common. We both believe in a higher power and we believe that through God, all things are possible. Keep praying and I will keep praying for you.”
There are a ton of big country artists that shared their thoughts, including Reba, Tanya Tucker, Charlie Daniels, Marty Stuart and Connie Smith, Wynonna Judd, Jeannie Seely, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Lee Greenwood, John Anderson, and Brenda Lee.

In the picture, Joey is sitting in her bed and eating some celery while Indiana is riding a tricycle. Along with it, they shared the caption, “…hand-made pigtails and a second-hand tricycle.”
“She steadied with her cane and I softly moved her across the room singing George Strait’s ‘You Look So Good In Love’ in her ear. In the middle of the song though, as I was being careful not to step on her toes — she stopped and looked up at me and said, ‘How about if I lead?’ And I followed her lead as we slowly two-stepped on her mama’s living room floor.”
