Country artists show their "Faith"
Monday, August 19, 2013
– "Country Faith," featuring the favorite scripture of artists ranging from Brad Paisley to Miranda Lambert, will be out Nov. 5 through Christian book publisher Zondervan.
"Country Faith" features the favorite scriptures of country artists plus a description of why the Bible passages resonate with them and how it impacts their daily spiritual walk. Fifty-six country artists took part in the project that also includes Carrie Underwood, The Band Perry and others. Deborah Evans Price conducted the interviews.
"Country Faith is one of the most meaningful projects I've ever had the privilege of working on," said Price. "This book provides artists a chance to share their faith and the revelations in these pages are insightful and inspiring. 'Country Faith' has been a blessing to me, and I'm sure it will deeply touch those who read it."
A portion of the sale of every book will benefit Danny Gokey's charity, Sophia's Heart Foundation. Gokey started the foundation following the death of his first wife from a heart condition in 2008, and the foundation exists to help mend and heal the hearts of children and families who have been touched by poverty, sickness, disease, broken homes and broken dreams.
