Get Right With God

  • This gospel-influenced song makes a religious statement. Williams considers it "religious folk art."
  • Williams said of this song: "I was making a statement about how far people will go to their faith, like sleeping on a bed of nails or snake handling. Those kinds of things show how deeply people believe in God."
  • Both of Williams's grandfathers were Methodist ministers. Thanks to her parents, she grew up a Unitarian.
  • This won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

  • Raymond from Sydney , AustraliaFunny song. Obviously the artist knows none of the things she talks about will get her right with God. Seek me if you really want to get right with God.
