The 59th Grammys were an emotional rollercoaster ride. One of the tear-jerking moments of the night was when gospel singer Rory Feek’s acceptance speech for winning Best Roots Gospel Album.

Before his wife Joey’s death, the couple recorded and released their final album, Hymns That Are Important to Us – which landed at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country and Contemporary Christian charts and No. 4 on the Top 200 chart, marking their biggest debut ever.

Rory’s memoir, This Life I Live, is due out on Valentine’s Day from HarperCollins imprint Thomas Nelson.
