Bill Anderson & Roy Acuff: “I Wonder If God Likes Country Music”

Probably, this might be one of the best duets in country music. The storytelling, mixed in recitation and singing, is what the song is all about. Both country music legends Bill Anderson and Roy Acuff sang together in great harmony, not only by sound but also by the heart.

Released in 1983, “I Wonder If God Likes Country Music” came into existence thanks to the songwriting skills of Bobbie Jean Carroll Orville Couch. Two of the greatest country music stars Anderson and Acuff recorded the country song. To note, it was Acuff’s last single to be released.

The Story Behind the Song

I Wonder If God Likes Country Music” is a country music tune that narrates the love of a man for country music. Also, it centers on his determination to become one of the biggest and leading stars in the industry. However, as much as he likes Country music so much, he wonders if God, too, likes country music (which is very obvious in its title). In addition, he also thinks if God will allow him to sing in case he dies and goes to heaven.

Truly, this song will touch and move your heart inside as it reveals a sad reality: the truth of aging or getting old. This is also dedicated to all the old country singing folks who can no longer sing the songs they used to perform. In general, “I Wonder If God Likes Country Music” is a tune for all the artists who have poured passion and dedication in making country music big and significant in the eyes of God and around the world.

Here’s a part of this beautifully crafted song:

I’ve sang my songs from Maine to California, seen the world through the window of a car
I never saved a dime back when I made it, I always thought someday I’d be a star
But now my voice is cracked and no one wants me, my wife gave up on me years ago
It’s been so long my kids don’t even know me, pickin’ and singin’ is the only life I know

WATCH: Bill Anderson performs “I Wonder If God Likes Country Music” and dedicates it to the late Roy Acuff on Country’s Family Reunion.
