Joey Feek honored at the 2016 ACM Awards

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Late country singer Joey Feek was honored at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 3.

The Presenters, Martina McBride and Darius Rucker lead the speech at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“Joey was more than a wonderful singer and an ACM-winning artist with her husband, Rory. She was a beloved mom, daughter, family member and friend. Of all of the different ways we could honor Joey, what would mean the most to Joey and her family is just for one more time, for all of her fans and all of us who love her to give her a big round of applause.”

All of the attendees stood up to honor the late singer with applause.

Some fans took to social media to also pay tribute.


McBride also revealed that Rory Feek’s daughter Hopie, who was close to her stepmom Joey, was also in the house on Sunday night. “God bless them and God bless you, Joey.”

Feek lost her battle with stage IV cervical cancer at the age of 40 on March 4. Her journey was documented by her husband, Rory, on his blog, This Life I Live.
