As Joey Feek’s battle with cancer continues, several country artists shared their thoughts and prayers with Joey + Rory via a video message, taped before Thanksgiving. The nearly 15-minute video had artists throughout the genre sharing the inspiration that Joey and Rory Feek have been for them.

“I’m sorry you are not feeling good,” Dolly Parton says at the video’s start. “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.”

Taking a break from tour rehearsals in Nashville, Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn also spoke fondly of the couple.

“Our hearts and our thoughts and our prayers are with you at this time and we love you with all of our hearts,” McEntire says.

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, among others, also shared their prayers with the couple.

“I feel like one of those heroes that I’ve met is Joey Feek,” Brenda Lee admits.

The outpouring of support comes alongside another emotional blog post from Rory Feek, who writes that his wife is much braver than he is.

“Sharing what we’re going through with others is really all we have to give,” he says. “If you share what you’re going through with me … maybe I’ll be able to draw something good from it if I am one day in your shoes.”
