Blake Shelton was among many celebrities in the country music world to share his sadness over Joey Feek's passing via social media in recent days.

Joey Feek died on Friday after battling cancer for two years. She and husband Rory Feek made up the country/bluegrass duo Joey + Rory.

Blake Shelton retweeted a Grand Ole Opry post confirming Joey Feek's death.

It wasn't too long before Joey Feek died that Blake Shelton said he didn't care about winning a Grammy Award, preferring to see Joey + Rory win for their song instead.

It's easy to see why Gwen Stefani loves Blake Shelton. Not all men are able to step outside of their own wants and needs in favor of another's.

Joey + Rory didn't win a Grammy Award, but were thrilled with their song "If I Needed You" receiving a nomination. Joey Feek lived to watch this year's Grammys on TV, which was a gift in itself.

Blake Shelton has a new album that is soon to be released. After reviewing the tracks on his album, Gwen Stefani eagerly bragged about it on social media.

Don't you love that Blake Shelton isn't afraid to show his emotions?

Maybe those emotions will come through even louder and clearer on his new album.
