Music Monday: “People Are Crazy”

“People are Crazy,” by Billy Currington. The bones of Christian theology are contained in this song.

I have little time for most “sacred music” and absolutely no time whatsoever for that particularly awful stuff marketed as “Christian Music.” I do however enjoy the fusion of the sacred and secular that is at the heart of true country music – Willie Nelson following up “Whiskey River” and “Bloody Mary Morning” with “Uncloudy Day,” or Hank Sr. singing “I Saw the Light.” Here faith and life are real, not syrupy and trite. It is music with an authentic edge and voice.

I do not know much about Billy Currington,  but I do know I love this song. You could write a three volume systematic theology based on this song .

Volume one: “God is great”
Volume two: “Beer is good”
Volume three: “People are crazy”
