    10 Awesome Country Songs That Glorify God!

    Recently I highlighted a song by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans called, New Again, about The Passion. Every time I hear that song I get emotional. We also received an email from a young reader, Autumn, who wrote that Josh Turner’s song, Long Black Train “opened [her] eyes up to God and helped [her] understand that He’s watching.”  Take a listen for yourself.

    Unlike Christian music, not all country music is faith-based and devoted to God. But there are some gems out there that praise God and all His goodness. A lot of country music also reflects Christian values. You need to pick and choose your artists, but if you’re looking to expand your music interest without compromising your love for God, consider some country music artists or songs.

    Below are my top 10 favorite country songs that glorify God.

    1. New Again – Brad Paisley and Sara Evans

    8. There Will Come a Day – Faith Hill

    1. That’s Why I Pray by Big and Rich is amazing!!! Also, a newer band called Eden’s Edge did a cover of In Christ Alone. It’s beautiful!!! Stand Up by Sugarland is also awesome 🙂 It’s about standing up for what you believe in!

    2. The Rascal Flatts song is my absolute favorite. I found it when I was going through a rough breakup, and it helped me fully realize that the only person who will never leave me is the only One I’ll ever need! It’s basically mine and God’s love song! 🙂

    3. I’m from the south and grow up on country music and though I don’t listen to country music any more, This song Believe by Brooks & Dunn will always be a beautiful song to me:) and one that makes me cry.

    4. I have listened to most of these songs growing up and I love them <3 Another great one if you look at in the perspective of Jesus singing it to you is "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. We listened to it this weekend at the YES! retreat and I hadn't looked at it that way before but now it's soo amazing

    5. I’ve grown up with country music and I only listen to country and gospel/Christian music. Scotty McCreery is my favorite singer and he is a Christian. He promotes God and before every concert, he shows a WorldVision video. I’m proud to be able to call myself a McCreerian!!!

    6. I love country music, although I have recently been listening to Natalie Grant and Kari Jobe…(and some secular music, which I don’t suggest to listen to over all genres.) I absolutely love the song “New Again” by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans…I was tearing up watching the video about the crucixfiction.

    7. #9 (When I Get Where I’m Going) absolutely brings tears to my eyes when I listen to it. It reminds me of my past, especially my eighth birthday when my grandpa died. That song was played at his funeral!

    8. Oh my goodness, yessss!!! I LOVE country music, and I love all of these songs. Had heard probably every one except New Again, and I almost cried when I heard that one!! Love your list!! (although I’d probably approve of any list with Josh Turner hehe!)
