I don’t know what you think about country music, but having lived in Nashville for 10 years, I have grown to enjoy it. The songs usually tell stories about the human condition. Whether they are singing about a lost love, partying and drinking or buying a truck and a boat. Blake Shelton recently released a new song entitles “God’s County.” It is a very catchy song and has quickly hit #1 in the charts.
What does the term God’s country conjure up for you? I usually think of a beautiful sunset, a beautiful mountain vista or maybe the majestic redwoods of Big Sur. Sometimes it is patriotic vision of the United States of America. Shelton turns my notion on its head, and I believe truly captures the meaning better than I ever could.
