Joey+Rory’s album, Hymns That Are Important to Us, reached gold status on March 7, selling more than 500,000 copies, and Rory Feek and his family celebrated at an event at Cracker Barrel’s Home Offices in Lebanon, Tennessee. The project sold nearly 160,000 copies at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, and Gaither Music presented Cracker Barrel with gold plaques at the event, where Feek and his family received custom rocking chairs and congratulations from Cracker Barrel. Feek’s wife Joey passed away almost exactly a year ago on March 4 from cervical cancer.

Joey Feek’s solo album, If Not For You, is set to be released April 7.
