The sun had probably just started shining through the window of their Indiana home when Joey+Rory received yet another piece of news in the wild tale of their lives.
Joey+Rory are nominated for an ACM Award.
And while Joey remains in the grips of the final stages of her cancer battle, the news that the two are nominated for “Vocal Duo of the Year” had to bring a smile to each of their faces.
Joey+Rory are up against fellow nominees Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line and Maddie & Tae in the ACM category, easily setting up what could be a fairy-tale win for the much loved country duo.
The Feb. 1 news adds another piece of good news to a month that already holds the release of their new album, their dear daughter Indiana’s birthday and their Grammy nomination. And there is no doubt that fans will be glued to their televisions though come April 3, when the 2016 ACM Awards are set to air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
