Carrie Underwood's "Something in The Water" and Love and Theft's "Whiskey On My Breath" are two recent releases that prominently display faith. The songs remind listeners that country music isn't always all about tailgates and having a good time, and that country music and religion have strong ties.
Christian singer Tanner Clark is contributing a sizable dose of faith to country radio with the release of "Cold Water," a song about the importance of faith that has been doing very well on Christian AC radio.
"Cold Water" is not a hymn in the traditional sense. It is a guitar and drum driven track with a very easily likable melody and tempo (reminiscent of "Lean On Me") that delivers an uplifting message of faith, finding God, and becoming a better person.
"So Baptize me down in the cold water
Wash me clean, make me a better man
When I rise You never ever let me falter
So take me down, down in the cold water"
