With so many people having different beliefs about the afterlife, there are a plethora of songs about the topic. Country superstar Brad Paisley released “When I Get Where I’m Going” in 2005 and sings it with the help of Miss Dolly Parton.
Originally written by George Teren and Rivers Rutherford, the song lyrics are about a memory Rivers had as a child. It’s about not fearing death because he’s confident that what he believes in will be there after his time on earth.
Brad Paisley decided to record the song the same year that it was written. Thanks to the help of Dolly Parton, the song has a soulful feel. You can tell that the two country music legends believe the words that they’re singing.
Once “When I Get Where I’m Going” was released, it shot straight to the top of the Billboard Country chart. The talented duo even got the song to the 39th position on the pop charts. It’s a beautiful piece of art that makes listeners feel a bit better about this life and the possibility of the next one.
