When God Paints

Album: Angels and Alcohol (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This inspirational Troy Jones and Greg Becker penned song finds Jackson singing about his faith. The singer told Billboard magazine that expressing his Christian beliefs is something that has always been important to him. "That has always been a part of my music, from all the way back to the beginning," Jackson said. "With country music, that's one attraction I've always had - is that it does touch that part of our lives with songs that are connected to church and God. It's been that way forever. Hank Williams Sr. wrote and recorded a lot of great Christian stuff, as well as Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, so it's always been a part of it."
