Before I was a Christian, I started to like country music and then I got really into it when I was a Christian. Now that I'm not a Christian anymore, I still like the stuff, but the referrences to God and Jesus stand out more and more. I feel like they've found a way to sneak in into every song! I thought certain artists were safe (such as Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, and Brad Paisley) but they have at least one Jesus-y song each. Can anyone recommend any country music that isn't so Christian? Is the country artists' version of street-cred church-cred? Anyone else have the same beef?

Listen to John R. Butler. He'll cheer you up. Here's the lyrics to his song "The Hand of the Almighty":


Oh sinner, do no stray

From the straight and narrow way

For the Lord is surely watching what you do


If you approach the Devil's den

Turn 'round, don't enter in

Lest the hand of The Almighty fall on you


He'll fuck you up (He'll fuck you up)

Yes, God will fuck you up

If you dare to disobey His stern command

He'll fuck you up (He'll fuck you up)

Don't you know He'll fuck you up

So you better do some prayin' while you can


Long ago a man named Lot

Had a wife he thought was hot

But she could not stop her black and sinful ways

You know it was her own damn fault

When God turned that bitch to salt

That's the way He used to work back in those days


He fucked 'em up (He'll fuck you up)

He really fucked'em up

When the people went and turned their backs on Him

He can fuck you up (He'll fuck you up)

No shit He'll fuck you up

Just like He fucked the people up back then


I used to have a friend named Ray

Who walked that evil way

He cursed and drank and broke his neighbor's fence

You know Ray was full aware

That some sheep were over there

And he knew them in the biblical sense


God fucked him up (He fucked him up)

He went and fucked Ray up

Went and paid him back for all his wicked sins

He fucked him up (He fucked him up)

Fucked that boy completely up

Now he's married to a Presbeterian

Dixie Chicks.

For those of us living in Houston all the local country radio stations have banned them because of them saying that George Bush made them embarrassed to say they're from Texas. And it's been 4 or 5 years at least.
