How Great Thou Art

April 6, 2013

I heard this song a thousand times or more in our Baptist church growing-up, but none of our church ladies could do this! It’s really fantastic, with simple and delicate country instrumentation: piano, steel guitar, and Vince Gill’s soft touch on the Fender.

I normally do not care for Miss Underwood’s powerful vocals — too powerful, not enough variation, and certainly not country (not if we use Kitty Wells or Tammy Wynette as are standards), but her style works great for this hymn.
