Joey Feek shared their excitement via Facebook.
This Grammy nomination comes on the heels of Joey and Rory Feek's announcement that, despite her illness, they are moving ahead to release their new album on Valentine's Day.

The Grammy Awards are the day after Valentine's Day. What a gift it would be for Joey and Rory if she lives for both of these exciting days.
