Rory Feek announces first onstage performance since the death of his wife, Joey Feek

Rory Feek will return to the stage once again.

The country singer, who is one-half of the award-winning country duo Joey + Rory, announced on Tuesday that he will perform publicly for the first time since the tragic death of his wife, Joey Feek, last year. Rory will perform at a barn in his hometown of Pottsville, Tennessee, on Sept. 8 and 9, in order to raise money for the Music Health Alliance, a non-profit organization that helped him with insurance and medical bills.

Rory's wife and musical partner, Joey, bravely battled cancer in the public eye and passed away on March 4, 2016. Rory has been raising their daughter, Indiana, as well as his two older daughters from a previous marriage.

His return to the stage marks a massive milestone since his wife's passing. Of the performance, Feek said he needed to try and get back onto the stage.

"I should get onstage and see what's there," Feek said. "What's in store? What would I say if I were up there by myself? For me it will be good because I will learn why I am supposed to be there and what the future holds."

The money raised helps people in the music industry navigate insurance plans, medical bills and more in times of need.
