Joey + Rory plan to release an album of Joey Feek‘s favorite hymns on Valentines Day 2016.

Joey + Rory Album

Rory Feek announced the album on his blog, This Life I Live, on Monday. According to Rory, it’s a project that Joey had long wanted to take on, and that they started to work on at the beginning of the summer.

“The [album] she’s always wanted to make – filled with the hymns she grew up with,” Rory wrote. “We recorded it in a studio in Nashville early in the summer – just after recovering from her first big surgery in Chicago. And then she did her vocals where she could… in hotel rooms, our house, wherever and whenever she felt up to singing.”

On the blog, Rory shared Joey’s recording of 19th century hymn “It Is Well with My Soul,” along with a video of a recent snowfall in Indiana that Joey was grateful to witness.

“This record means so much to her. It is the songs that are the most important to her,” Rory wrote of the album, which will be titled, Hymns That Are Important To Us. “I think Joey wants to capture the words and music of her childhood. The music that she goes to when she needs comfort. The music that makes this beautiful, tragic, crazy life somehow make sense. I think she wants to capture this music so we can take it home with us. All of us. And have it forever.”

Joey and Rory plan to donate a portion of the proceeds of the album to The Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation in honor of their 1-year-old daughter Indiana’s friend Scout, who is living with the syndrome.
