A popular hymn dating back to 1912, "The Old Rugged Cross" has been sending those lost from the Lord back into his graces with its powerful and resonating message. While the hymn has been covered by various artists throughout the years, it seems as if country music superstar Brad Paisley has captured the emotionally charged message through his pure, southern vocals.
With very simple instrumentals, Paisley's voice is exceptionally framed and able to clearly and concisely project the feeling of love and acceptance. Singing the touching lyrics, "And I'll cherish the old rugged cross until my trophies at last I lay down. I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it some day for a crown," Paisley instills a sense of purpose and hope into his listeners.
Paisley sings this beautiful song with the emotional elements that only a country artist can emphasize. Despite the song's growing age, it's the vibrant, new tributes that keep this song current and powerful.
