Posted on: November 6th, 2015 by Chris

Miranda Lambert hasn’t been shy about admitting this has been a difficult year. She said it during her CMA acceptance speech Wednesday night saying, “I needed a bright spot.” The next night, she took stock of some of the blessings in her life.

She posted a picture on her Facebook page saying she’s still floating from the previous night’s wins, but not necessarily hers. A hashtag and the t-shirt she wore while accepting the Female Vocalist award Wednesday points to being happy for Chris Stapleton.

"Horse Power"….. I'm still floating around on a cloud from last night. Thank you so much @cma for celebrating country music in a big way and for letting me be part of it. Today was a day spent reflecting on this amazing life that Nashville and country music fans have given me. And my friends. I'm so grateful #inspired #gypsyvanner #nomakeuptillnextweek #musicismedicine #chrisstapleton #unicorn #ponyportrait

In an unfortunate update on his wife’s cancer battle, Rory Feek of Joey + Rory says Joey has said goodbye to their daughters as she prepares for what doctors have said will be the end of her life.

They canceled their remaining dates of their tour after getting the news that Joey’s cancer has not responded to the latest rounds of treatment and told them there’s nothing more that medical science can do for her.

The couple have made the tough decision not to seek further treatment, and in a new post to his blog, This Life I Live, Rory says they are with Joey’s family in Indiana, where his two daughters from a previous marriage, Heidi and Hopie, have come to spend time with the woman who has been a fixture in their lives for 13 years, as well as Joey and Rory’s 1-year-old daughter, Indiana.

“She told them how much she loved them, and how proud she is of them. And how proud she is to be their mother,” he shared. “And then she talked with them about the one thing that she didn’t think she would ever have to talk with them about: Leaving them. And then she told them of the day when they’ll be together again in Heaven.”

Rory Feek/This Life i Live

The couple are asking for fans and friends to join them in a prayer vigil this Thursday (November 5) at 8PM CST. They are asking for everyone to pray Joey’s prayer, which is simply, “Pray for a miracle…And even more so, for peace with His decision.”
