Today I wanted to offer another new feature to the blog. I try to highlight the best music Southern Gospel has offered over the course of its recording history. The fact of the matter is not every song recorded in the history of this genre has been good. There have been some bad and downright corny songs. This new feature is in search of the corniest Southern Gospel song ever recorded.
This new feature is not a slam against the songwriter who wrote the song or a slam against the artist who recorded it, but a critique of the song itself. I will need my readers help each week as we search for the corniest Southern Gospel song ever recorded. In the comments section I want you to give the song a rating of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest in terms of cheese factor.
The first song in the spotlight is a re-write of an early ’90’s country hit “Achy Breaky Heart”. If the country song wasn’t ‘cheese’ enough, the MaHarreys decided to record a re-work of the song titled “Jesus Can Heal Your Achy Breaky Heart” on a 1993 recording Turning Point.
Listen to the first verse and chorus and remember to rate the ‘cheese’ factor in the comments section on a scale of 1 to 5.
