How Great Thou Art.

On my trip to CCR & back I listen to my own music on the K1600. I had forgotten about even having this song by Carrie Underwood in my collection. Not that I'm a big Fan of Miss Underwood but this song by her & Vince Gill is just plane fantastic.

I am an atheist but I can appreciate how that can be a moving song.

She knocks that song out of the park, doesn't she? And Vince Gill - one of the great voices of our time - is perfect as harmony on the choruses.

Re: How Great Thou Art.

Remember watching that.....Carrie Underwood has an amazing voice and she is soooo very easy on the eyes.......

Before Vince Gill started his solo career he was one of the best studio guitar players around, he sat in on many albums......little know facts, he was a member of Prue Prairie League (old timers might remember Amie), and Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits ask him to join the group.

Vince Gill is a lot like Jerry Douglas: he just blends so well and is so smoooooooth. Great clip, thanks for posting.

I pay very little attention to so called "STARS" and their personal life but I know that Vince Gill is an incredible guitarist and Carrie Underwood is a beautiful young woman with a great voice and every time I hear their performance of How Great Thou Art it gives me goose bumps. It is amazing!
