They Were Told “Don’t Sing About Jesus” – Their Response Will Blow Your Mind

The night of Little Big Town’s Opry member induction, live at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, was one for the ages. To inaugurate the show, Little Big Town was joined by country superstar Vince Gill. Together they sang one of the most beautiful renditions of “Why Me Lord” ever! I still had goosebumps after this performance!

The four members of Little Big Town; Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet, were joined by Vince to create this masterpiece. “Why Me Lord” was originally written and recorded by country legend, Kris Kristofferson, in 1972. Many artists have successfully covered it over the years, but the cover featured below is definitely one of the best!

The back story on this video is that Vince was apparently told the Opry had rules that prohibited artists from singing songs about Jesus, most likely because they were worried about offending non-Christians who might be in the audience or watching on TV. Apparently Vince decided to do it anyway, and apparently the audience didn’t have a problem with it
