Like a Freight Train

Now and then one comes across a performance which is really, really, really good.

This is one of them. You don't have to be a Southern Baptist (I'm not) to "get" the excellence of the performance here. It's clear that Ms. Underwood delivers from conviction, but it takes far more than mere conviction to do what she does in this video.

It hits like a freight train.

The audience is a 'jury of peers', by the way--which should tell you something. They were on their feet 40 seconds before the end....

Yes Dad, awesome!

I had heard of Underwood but never heard her sing (I don't watch much TV...) but that was certainly heartfelt. The reaction of her 'peers' said it all. They appreciate sincerity and talent.

And yes, Vince Gill is no slouch on the guitar - the accompaniment was great.
