'Amazing Grace' Southern Raised Bluegrass Band

'Amazing Grace' Southern Raised Bluegrass Band

The talented siblings of Southern Raised Bluegrass perform a soul-stirring rendition of ‘Amazing Grace.’

This beloved hymn was originally written by John Newton. John wrote the hymn as a way of giving thanks to the Lord after He granted him new life.

As a sailor, John was known for his crude language and actions. But one day, John found himself caught in the middle of a terrible storm.

After spending hours at the helm of the ship, John’s thoughts began to turn to God. After surviving the weather, John started his life as a Christian and dedicated himself to serving our Father.

The touching words of ‘Amazing Grace’ were inspired by this revelation.

“Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear

And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed”

Siblings Lindsay, Sarah, Emily and Matt make up the Southern Raised Bluegrass band. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith.

They describe themselves as creating a ‘Southern Raised trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meets country roads. SR has morphed a progressive sound that spans Christian Country/ Bluegrass, Celtic and Classical.’ Today, they’re worshipping God with a beautiful bluegrass performance of ‘Amazing Grace.’ And after hearing this family praise the Lord, I’m saying amen!
