From long before their 2008 debut as a duo, competing on CMT's Can You Duet, to the last songs they would record together in Joey Martin Feek's all-too-brief lifetime, Joey + Rory knew how to make radio listeners, TV viewers and crowds smile, laugh and sing along to their instantly likeable songs.

Their recorded output includes just a handful of LPs (including the Number One album Hymns That Are Important to Us, released last month) and incorporates original songs, Christmas music and gospel standards, but even if the number is few, everything the couple recorded together was performed with a genuine respect for their audience, a reverence for God and an unfaltering love for each other.

If the gift of more time was, ultimately, impossible to hope for — Joey Martin Feek died from cancer today at age 40 — the gift of love will have to do. These 10 unforgettable performances are among the greatest gifts Joey + Rory left for their fans, and fans of country music in general.
