One of my favorite first country CD's I ever got was Alan Jackson. I listened to one of his songs again in the summer of 2002 during an unexpected road trip delay (Montana: Hungry Horse Trip). It was an inspirational song called "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning). I listened to it during a ride in the hills of Havre, MT. When I first listened to the song, I wanted to immediately buy the CD. Unfortunately, I never really got to it. However, I found these related links:
Some cool songs about the Lord...
I was playing pool with some friends (Tim and a Bulgarian couple on New Year's Day-January 1st of 2007) in a local hangout (Crystal Lanes-Morris,MN) and was very touched by a couple of country songs. I decided to look it up on the internet...
"Jesus Was A Country Boy.." by Clay Walker
"Three Wooden Crosses", by Randy Travis
My Bulgarian friend, Tony, was even touched too! He would start singing the first song off and on afterwards.
A co-worker (formerly Hoffman Home)/friend/sister in Christ (5-6+ years) of mine is trying to contact (September 2005) Mr. Travis about a song she wrote. She feels led by the Lord that this is a type of song Mr. Travis might be into. She would like Mr. Travis to sing this song she wrote with some of his insights on edition of course! I look in the internet on how to contact him, which I found this site->Randy Travis (his testimony)
... "Before Travis pulled out of his downward spiral of youthful crime, he was convicted of breaking and entering, larceny and carrying a concealed weapon. However, for his positive contributions to society as an adult later in life, Travis received a pardon for his offenses in 1999 from then-North Carolina governor James Hunt. Travis' true spiritual awakening didn't come until the mid-1980's, around the time he started recording classic country songs like "On the Other Hand," "1982" and "Diggin' Up Bones." "In my early to mid-20s, I started reading the Bible," he says. "I was amazed at how it brought this calming effect over me. I hadn't known much peace of mind for quite awhile." Travis also started attending church regularly for the first time in his life."
