Bible Belt Blues' 2nd Album Bridges The Gap Between Classic Hymns And Contemporary Worship Music
Award Winning Christian Music Addresses Sin, Repentance, and Salvation
By: Bible Belt Blues
Paula Vega Vondenstein, lyricist for all of Bible Belt Blues' songs, approaches her lyric writing from an evangelical and theological standpoint. After much scripture study, Paula crafts the lyrics first before her husband, Harold, creates the music after praying to the Holy Spirit. Paula strives to recapture doctrinal truths that have somehow been lost in the shuffle when churches transitioned from traditional services with hymns to contemporary services with songs that have been crafted first and foremost for commercial success. "It's the lyrics that make a song Christian; the bolder the better; soft and fluffy lyrics do not win souls for Christ," says Paula.
Everything about Bible Belt Blues is counter-culture:
This has been an amazing year for the Vondensteins with the release of two Christian albums since January of 2019, "I'm Not Ashamed to Be a Christian" and "My God, My God," to winning the coveted Josie Music Award for Gospel/ Christian Duo. Eleven of their songs have already received radio airplay thanks to Bill and Kat Radio's Cross 104 Gospel Blues Hour Syndicated Program resulting in numerous placements on the Roots Music Report.
Who would write a song about stealing God's glory and what kind of radio station would play a song like that? But God got the final word when "The Glory Belongs to You, Lord" from Bible Belt Blues' first album, "I'm Not Ashamed to Be a Christian" received the most airplay of all of Bible Belt Blues' songs to date. Bible Belt Blues' much anticipated second album release, "My God, My God," seeks to break even more barriers and cross over genres to soften hardened hearts to the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ.
Bible Belt Blues is available for revival concerts and special events at churches, colleges, schools, conferences, and retreats. Bookings or music: www.BibleBeltBlues.org
