Joey Feek’s fans have been incredibly supportive during her battle with terminal cancer, and as a thank you to their fans, Overstock is giving away free copies of Joey and Rory’s final album Joey+Rory: Hymns That Are Important To Us.
“Now, as a thank you to their fans, old and new, for leaving their thoughts, we are sharing The Joey+Rory Gift of Music with them. Beginning tomorrow, February 10th and running through the GRAMMY Awards, we are giving away a limited quantity of the Feek’s new album Joey+Rory: Hymns That Are Important to Us,” Overstock said in a statement.
For fans to receive their free CD, all they have to do is visit the link provided, and fill out a short form. The shipping for the CD is free, and the offer will only be good through the Grammy Awards, which will take place on Monday, February 15.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Overstock.com has been collaborating with Joey and Rory since they completed CMT’s music competition in 2008. The country music duo signed on with the company initially to do an Overstock commercial campaign but have since become part of the Overstock family. Last month, Overstock has created a “Digital Love Card” for all of their fans to sign to honor the couple during this difficult time.
“Through that initial connection, and as the years have passed, we have witnessed firsthand their dedication to their art, to their work, and to each other,” Overstock said in a tribute to Joey and Rory. “In this life, we are sometimes privileged to know people who truly move us. They are the people who leave a permanent impression on our hearts.”
“Joey and Rory Feek are these kind of people. Not only do they creatively and emotionally inspire one another, but their love story inspires us. Even as Joey battles the end stages of terminal cancer, they continue to exemplify grace and tenderness in the face of difficulty; they embody faith and hope in the face of doubt and fear. Their love story is beautiful and we would like to add our voice of gratitude to the many who have also found inspiration through Joey + Rory.”
The company created the hashtag #CardForJoeyRory on social media for fans to use, and then each message is posted to Overstock’s website so the Feeks can see them all collectively.
“Thank you for your voices. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for your story that has no ending,” Overstock wrote. “We stand alongside you in the days ahead.”

According to a prior report from the Inquisitr, Joey Feek was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer in May 2014, three months after she and Rory welcomed their daughter Indiana (Indy), who celebrates her second birthday later this month. Joey later underwent a radical hysterectomy and several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation in hopes of beating the disease. While she appeared to be getting better, an October 2015 scan revealed that her cancer had returned, and was spreading quickly and aggressively. Although Joey could continue to undergo chemo and radiation, her doctors told her it would only buy her a few more months, not the cure she had so desperately hoped and prayed for.

As heartbreaking as it was, Joey decided to stop treatment and return to her home in hospice care so she could spend the remainder of her days, however many that may be, with her family. Rory keeps their fans updated on his blog This Life I Live, and said his wife’s time in hospice has been like a roller coaster — one day they think she may actually beat this, and the next they fear she has taken a turn for the worse. Despite her current condition, and her grave prognosis, Joey hasn’t given up hope and has previously said that she wanted to hold on long enough to see their final album be released, the Grammy Awards for which they are nominated as vocal duo of the year, and Indiana’s second birthday.
