Country superstar and Christian celebrity George Strait performs ‘God And Country Music’ live at the 54th ACM Awards. And as usual, the “King of Country” didn’t disappoint!
There's just something about country music and the gospel that fit together so perfectly. Nothing can compare to hearing an uplifting Christian song with a bluegrass backdrop.
Legendary country performer George Strait certainly agrees with this sentiment. The words of his latest song, from the album ‘Honky Tonk Time Machine," remind us of the unique connection.
"God and country music,
They both showed you the truth
Seen the low of the valley
And the highs of the mountains too
Folded hands and guitar strings
Jukebox preachers and angels singing
Call you like they knew ya
Between the hell and hallelujah"

Like Johnny Cash’s arm around Billy Graham
God and country music
They both never change
You find ’em when you need ’em
Where you stand"
