We know some famous Alan Jackson songs: “Remember When” and “Small Town Southern Man.” But the country music singer is also known for his famous gospel song renditions, including “He Lives.”
Alan Jackson released his version of “He Lives” in his 2013 album Precious Memories Volume II. The album includes Alan’s other covers of gospel songs, such as “Amazing Grace,” “Just as I Am,” “Precious Memories,” and a few others.
The gospel hymn is known for its message of accepting Christ in our hearts and allowing Him to sustain us through His grace. The idea of “He Lives” fits Alan Jackson because he is one country music artist who sings about love and faith in God.
Alan’s version of the hymn is a simple one. The simple melody of the piano and faint guitar strum back the track. His voice is a soothing one as he calmly sings through the song. The backing vocals also give a light feeling and spice to the cover.
Messages of praise and worship flooded Alan’s version of the gospel hymn, saying that their lives changed for the better because they knew Christ. One mentioned how Alan’s rendition is a beautiful cover and sounds like how the church would sing it.
