Good Country Storytelling
Posted February 26, 2018

What you need to know:
Louisiana's Bradley Bridges has quietly been carving out a new genre in Christian music, merging his Southern/country roots with a deep desire to proclaim the gospel. The singer-songwriter, worship leader and former Air Force Reserve has had a lot of ups and downs over his life, but is walking strong with God and is sharing his heart with this new music. 

What it sounds like: 
This is country music, y'all! This songwriter, who has been making what is being called "Outlaw Christian Music" has a distinct twang, the storytelling delivery and the interplay between acoustic guitar, electric guitar and subtle honky tonk piano. 

Spiritual highlights:
Bridges starts the song by talking about how although he was raised in a Christian home and did all the right things, said the right prayers, "I never got changed." He goes on to say that eventually God got ahold of him, with the chorus resounding: "I know the winding road better than the straight one... I put to death my old life, now I'm hidden in Christ." It's a great testimony song about Bridges' connection to and transformation from singing the broken-heart songs of country music to "singing sermons," as he says. 

Final word:
Bradley Bridges gives us a great example of what "Christian country" could sound like, and makes us confused as to why more people aren't doing it. He shows us it can work, and work beautifully!
