Top Religious Mainstream Country Music

I’d like to assembly a playlist of modern (and mainstream) Country music with significantly religious themes (such as Carrie Underwood’s Jesus, Take the Wheel). I can think of four or five others also.

Any recommendations?

" If I was Jesus" …Toby Keith

Kathy

I assume Randy Travis is disqualified since he became an outright Christian musician. I would imagine that anything appearing on a “worship” C.D. would not qualify either.

How about, “They Don’t Understand” by Sawyer Brown. That’s a great one with a great message.

“My Front Porch Looking In” by Lonestar shows Christian family values and acknowledges God.

Warning some of these are rather depressing

A Broken Wing- Martina Mcbride
God’s Will- Martina Mcbride
Anyway- Martina Mcbride

“Why Me”–Kris Kristofferson

“When I Get Where I’m Going”–Brad Paisley

“Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good”–Don Williams

Also, “Down in the River to Pray” by Alison Krauss

After 9/11 the radio stations around here were constantly playing Faith Hill’s “There Will Come A Day”. I have always thought this was a really powerful song.

Faith Hill - There Will Come A Day lyrics

It’s not easy trying to understand
How the world can be so cold, stealing the souls of man
Cloudy skies rain down on all your dreams
You wrestle with the fear and doubt
Sometimes it’s hard but you gotta believe

Chorus:
There’s a better place, where our Father waits
And every tear He’ll wipe away
The darkness will be gone,the weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith

There will come a day, there will come a day
Wars are raging, lives are scattered
Innocence is lost, and hopes are shattered
The old are forgotten, the children are forsaken
In this world we’re living in
Is there anything sacred?

There will come a day, there will come a day
The song will ring out, down those golden streets
The voices of earth with the angels will sing
Every knee will bow, sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
Every knee will bow, sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
There will come a day, there will come a day
Oooh there will come a day
I know there’s coming a day, coming a day
