It’s been five months since Joey Feek passed away, and while her husband Rory has plans to keep her memory alive, he admits having difficulty with other aspects of her death, like selecting a headstone for her grave.
Rory appears on CBS Sunday Morning this Sunday (September 4), where he opens up about the trouble he’s had selecting the right way to commemorate her final resting place in a cemetery on the grounds of their 60-acre farm. “I don’t know if it’s that she’s so simple, and a wooden cross is part of what she would like,” he says in the interview. “It probably has something to do with permanence. So, for now, I can sit out here and feel like it’s – it’s maybe just temporary. Although I know it’s not.”
Feek also hasn’t started writing music since Joey passed. “I don’t want to go on stage without her,” he says. “That’s what I’m thinking about right now. I just don’t want to make music without her. But I also know time changes things. So I won’t say never. It’s just where I am today.”
Even if he has yet to put pen to paper and craft new songs, Rory has created a new documentary on the couple that will be playing in movie theaters for one night only on September 20th.
His interview on CBS Sunday Morning airs September 4th at 9am.
