Cash Contra Rascal Flatts

March 28, 2010

An interesting Russel Moore interview regarding the relationship between the Southern Baptist Convention and Country Music.

My Favorite Quote:
“The more successful the churches become, the more consumerist and elite they become and the less powerful. Why do people like to listen to Cash on American VI or American V when he is singing, “Hurt?” It’s because it is a dying man. You don’t see a strong, sober picture of a man facing death. Instead you have the authenticity of somebody whose voice is raspy and who is dying. The difference between Cash and Rascal Flatts is the difference between a prophetic, marginalized Baptist witness and the slick packaged product of Southern Baptist success.”

P.S. – I hope I didn’t mislead or disappoint anyone with the Contra reference in the title (though perhaps there will be a post in the legitimate place Contra has in the top 5 video games ever made).
