Various Artists 'Country Songs of Faith' - Maranatha

This twin CD set showcases country music's biggest songs about God. The Top 25 series has sold millions of copies and has established itself as an enduring brand. This latest release in the series covers songs of faith and hope with the best of modern country artists together with some lesser known names. No Bible belt chest thumping preachers here, no God fearing sentiment about the Heavenly rewards that await us all in the next life. Instead we are given songs that tackle the fragility of life and the unknown qualities that keep us striving to be better people on the path of life.

Rascal Flatts (Bless the Broken Road), Tim McGraw (Touchdown Jesus), Brad Paisley (When I Get Where I’m Going), Lady Antebellum (Hello World), Carrie Underwood (Jesus take the Wheel) and many more come together with songs that are both varied and colourful in reflecting different aspects of faith in a higher power. As Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get.”
