Country Singer Rory Feek can’t seem to get enough of his daughter, Indiana. The singer’s Instagram page has lately been awash with new pictures of the 5-year-old.


Country musician Rory Feek is enjoying parenting duties with his daughter. He recently shared new pictures of the beautiful Indiana, which showed how much she has grown.


Fans of Rory would be pleased after seeing the pictures, as Rory stands as both a father and a mother to Indiana after he lost his wife, Joey to cancer three years ago.


The singer posted a series of pictures on his Instagram page. One of the posts showed a happy and smiling Indiana wearing a swimming trunk, and Rory’s caption suggested she was heading to the hot springs.


Another post showed beautiful Indiana wearing a navy blue dress which had an inscription: “Star Spangled Cutie.” Her father duly captioned the post:

…our little firecracker.


An interesting post from Rory showed his daughter with her friend, Caleb, on the day of his (Caleb’s) birthday.

A second picture from that post showed when Caleb and Indiana were one-year-olds, alongside their moms.


Rory’s caption of this particular post suggested that Caleb (also with down syndrome) and Indiana were very close friends and could be a couple someday, a wish both their moms had.

The last in the series of posts from Rory showed him and his daughter all packed up and heading for their first adventure together. The country singer captioned the post by saying they would visit some friends, play a couple of fun shows in Colorado and Montana, and make wonderful memories.



Soon after Indiana was born, Rory and his late wife Joey discovered that she had Down syndrome. However, that knowledge did not, in any way, change their mindset or feelings towards her.

Instead, they embraced Indiana’s differences and saw her as God’s gift to them. Rory took time to address these facts in a blog post, where he explained that being different doesn’t mean being less and that all children are heavenly gifts.



There is no denying that Rory misses Joey, who died in 2016 after a battle with colon and cervical cancer. He, however, believes she would be proud of how Indiana has grown.

The country star built a school, Hardison Mills School, in the aftermath of Joey's death, using donations worth $100,000 from fans. The school allows Indiana to learn with other children and is just three minutes walk from their home.
