7 country music hit songs that put faith back on the mainstream charts

Blake Shelton's "God's Country"

Blake Shelton’s single “God's Country” is climbing the country airplay charts. "The Voice" judge even performed his anthem at the Academy of Country Music Awards, in Las Vegas this year.

Written by Jordan Schmidt, Michael Hardy and Devin Dawson, "God's Country," combines Christian imagery with rural tradition.

"I saw the light in the sunrise/ Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside/ Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine/ With the dogs runnin'/ Saved by the sound of the been found/ Dixie whistled in the wind, that'll get you heaven bound/ The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around/ This is God's country," Shelton sings in the chorus.
