Manager: Joey Feek, of country duo Joey + Rory, dies at 40

Joey Feek, who with her husband, Rory, formed the award-winning country duo Joey + Rory, died Friday, her manager said.

Feek, who had been diagnosed with cancer two years ago, died at home in Indiana, Aaron Carnahan said.

The brunette singer from Alexandria, Ind., found success when she paired with her songwriter husband on the Country Music Television singing competition "Can You Duet?" in 2008. Joey Feek sang lead, and her husband, known for his sideburns and blond flattop, provided harmonies on such traditional country songs as "That's Important to Me."
