Joey Feek’s Solo Album Set for Release in April
In 2005, Joey Feek recorded a solo album. The record was never widely released, but on April 7, more than a decade later — and just over a year after Feek’s death — the project will be available to fans.
Due out via the Gaither Music Group, If Not for You (originally titled Strong Enough to Cry) was produced by Feek’s husband, Rory Feek, along with Bill McDermott, the Tennessean reports. The disc contains 12 songs, including a tribute to Joey Feek’s brother Justin (“See You There”) and the original version of “That’s Important to Me,” a charting single (No. 51) for Joey + Rory in 2010.
“It’s one of the great joys of my life to dust these songs off and bring them to life again,” Rory Feek writes in the 48-page booklet that will accompany physical copies of If Not for You. “Not just the songs, but also the stories and the life of the special woman that these songs represent.”
