Saving Country Music for Atheism

Robbie Fulks, God isn't real.

Patty Loveless, God Will - a clever inversion of the appeal to God, standard in country music. The song uses the term 'God' as a metaphor for an idealized forgiveness that is simply not possible for humans. Top marks to Patty for getting away with calling this metaphorical God a "she"!
