I think we can all agree that these two things go together perfectly. There’s truly nothing like hearing an uplifting gospel song with a bluegrass backdrop. Legendary performer George Strait certainly agrees.
The lyrics of his latest song, from the album ‘Honky Tonk Time Machine,” remind us of the unique connection.
“God and country music are like whiskey and a prayer
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”
What truly makes this track stand out is the addition of George’s 6-year-old grandson, Harvey.
Harvey lends his adorable vocals to the tune and it serves as a reminder that we must teach the next generation faith and values.
Today, George and Harvey are belting out the powerful lyrics together at the Houston Rodeo Show in Houston, Texas. As soon as George brought his grandson onstage, the crowd started cheering. And the young boy stood right by his granddad’s side the entire time.
There were no nerves, just an incredible duet between these two family members. George Strait is one of the most beloved country artists of all-time.
Ever since he premiered ‘God And Country Music’ during one of his Strait to Vegas residency shows, fans have rallied around the anthem. They all agree, just like George Strait sings, “there's two things still worth saving, God and country music.”
