“Country Faith” 56 Reflections from Today’s Leading Country Music Stars
Living near Nasvhille, TN we are big country music fans. From the Grand Ole Opry to the Ryman to the CMA’s, country music is alive and well. The artists sometimes seem larger than life, but they are just regular folks. And many of the country artists got their musical start singing gospel music in church.
County Faith is a beautiful hard cover book with a color photo of each artist. The opposite page contains their favorite or life verse and an explanation of that verse’s meaning in their life. There are 56 artists highlighted in the book and they cover the whole realm of country music: young (Scotty McCreery), older (Ray Stevens), male(Rodney Atkins) and female (Miranda Lambert); groups and duos are also included.
While some of these artists perform gospel music, many perform in the secular arena, so it was refreshing to know that they are willing to profess their love for the Bible by sharing their favorite verse.
This book is easy to read and the sections from each artist are one page or less. This could be used as a devotional book along with your own personal Bible reading. With Christmas just around the corner, this book would make an excellent gift for your favorite music fan!
