Christian Views on Country Music

Welcome! This is the blog of DaveLoneRanger which entails only his commentary on country music, from a Christian conservative perspective. Thus, he takes a dim view of some songs many consider "staples" of country, such as drinking songs. Ye be warned.

Martina Sings "Anyway"

In her first single release since "I Still Miss Someone" (which never made it to my airwaves) and "Rose Garden," Martina McBride has released a new single entitled "Anyway."

I was listening to the premiere of the single on AfterMidnite with Blair Garner, and immediately loved the song. The message is inspiring, and the music fits perfectly.

Click here for lyrics, and listen to the song.

In life, a lot of things are judged as meaningless, that nothing is accomplished through life, love or prayer. McBride cuts through the pessamistic voices and extends a hand and an invitation to sing (live, love, pray) anyway. There is worthwhile joy and beauty to be found in the "worthless" things such as these. McBride even takes the lyrics and applies them to herself by singing: "You can pour your soul out singing a song you believe in that tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang. Sing it anyway."

Not a lot of people are reading or will read this blog, I expect.

But, I'll blog it anyway.

Thanks for this post. I'd heard that song last year while briefly in the US, never had a chance to see the lyrics before.

Thanks for blogging anyway.
