Joey Feek may be gone, but certainly not forgotten.

The country singer -- who died on March 4 after a long battle with terminal cancer -- was honored at the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night in Las Vegas.

During the beautiful tribute, which was presented by Darius Rucker and Martina McBride, a photo of Joey appeared on the screen, which immediately received a standing ovation from the star-studded audience.

"A few weeks ago, we lost a member of our country music family with the passing of Joey Feek," Rucker began.

McBride chimed in, saying, "Joey was more than a wonderful singer and an ACM winner along with her husband, Rory -- she was a beloved mom, daughter, family member and friend."

"Of all the different ways we could honor Joey, we think that what would mean the most to Joey and her family is just one more time for all of us -- all of her fans and all of us who loved her -- to give her a big round of applause," Rucker added.
