This throwback performance by Barbara Mandrell and the Statler Brothers on ‘Amazing Grace’ was so powerful back in the 70s and even today.
Country music star and actress, Barabara Mandrell joins the four Statler Brothers for a live TV performance of Amazing Grace in a classic Christian country crossover.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see
Barbara Ann Mandrell is a singer, musician, and actress and has many country hits in the 1970s and 1980s. She performed for the last time at the Grand Ole Opry House on October 23, 1997, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009.
It was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed
The Statler Brothers originally performed songs at local churches but found fame during the sixties when they opened for and sang as background vocalists for Johnny Cash. They finally broke off from Cash and released 40 albums on their own and earned number one spots independently on American hit charts.
Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come
It is Grace that brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home
What a stunning performance this was and still is even today, our God is so amazing and powerful and it’s only His grace that will lead us all home.
