I’m a little verklempt!
Talk amongst yourselves..I’ll give you a topic:
A recent article circulating the interwebs, most notably on CMT and the weekly Quotable Country entry at Country California, ponders the prevalance of Christianity in country music. Though the blog contains a couple inaccuracies (for example, “She Left Me for Jesus” is not a typical religious song), the question posed by its author is in plain view. Is country music merely a platform for spirituality?
Please keep the dialogue respectful, but feel free to discuss “Let’s Get Jesus Out of Country Music” by Bob Wire (a regular Joe, judging from the website) and the response by CMT’s Alison Bonaguru.
