The couple’s manager and their two daughters Hopie and Heidi will represent Joey + Rory in case they win. Rory shared that they left Nashville for L.A. today (February 11th).
Joey encouraged her husband to attend the ceremony in Los Angeles. According to his newest blog post on his website This Life I Live, she even went so far as to buy him a plane ticket. He cancelled that ticket, however, sharing, “I can’t leave her. I won’t.”
Instead, Rory has chosen to remain by his wife’s bedside and watch the GRAMMYs from home. Rory stated, “[W]e will again gather around Joey’s bed and turn the tv-in-the-corner on and watch the Grammy Awards – Joey’s mama and daddy and her three sisters and their kids – all of us having a big-time together.”
His daughters asked Rory to pen a few words they could read in case the couple ends up winning. “I told them not to worry about it, but they insist,” he wrote. “I can’t imagine our names being called. But then again, Joey and I also couldn’t have imagined us being where we are at all… the good parts or the bad.
The GRAMMYs will air live on CBS Monday, February 15 at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT.
