Least Remarkable Song Series – #14

cedarridge1988heartfeltmaxThis week, we’ve made it to the song ranked 14th among the least remarkable in the history of Southern Gospel music.  Cedar Ridge, a family group, based out of Knoxville Tennessee had a run of success in Southern Gospel music for about a decade, starting around 1986.

In 1988, the group recorded a song titled “Hillbilly Heaven” on their recording Heartfelt.  To this day I still don’t know the songwriter of this particular song.  While I understand the premise presented, the song still comes off as cheesy.

This song is supposed to counter the hit country song with the same title that dates back to Tex Ritter, who recorded it in 1957.  Here is the song ranked 14th among the least remarkable; “Hillbilly Heaven”.
