Country gospel songs are among the most iconic gospel melodies, and the most beloved by fans of the genre. Country gospel is often called “Christian gospel,” and while that description is certainly accurate, country gospel has its own unique sound. You'll find some of the most traditional gospel songs on this list – but they’ve been redone and reworked by some well-known country music artists.

Some of the most famous country gospel songs are incredibly inspirational, including hymns such as “I’ll Fly Away” and “Amazing Grace.” Both long-standing gospel mainstays have been given a country twist by famous artists and bands like The Gatlin Brothers, Lee Greenwood, and even Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. Both Cash and Haggard recorded several gospel songs in their time, and they are timeless examples of good country gospel songs. You’ll find several modern era country artists on this list, too, performing traditional country gospel songs. Is there any doubt that Vince Gill’s soul-stirring “Go Rest High on that Mountain” is one of the top country gospel songs of all time?

Deciding the very best country gospel songs is up to you. Vote your favorites up to the top of the list, and please add any pieces that are missing.
