Written by Blake himself, along with Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander Writer, and Rhett Akins, “Jesus Got A Tight Grip” echos an old country hymn, similar to “Savior’s Shadow,” a Christian and Country radio crossover song from Blake’s 2016 album, If I’m Honest.
‘Cause Jesus got a tight grip on my soul, And he ain’t letting go, he ain’t letting go, The Devil reaches out but he can’t grab hold, ‘Cause Jesus got a tight grip on my soul.”
“Jesus Got A Tight Grip” joins “God’s Country” and “Hell Right” as three of the five new releases on Blake’s upcoming greatest hits album.
“I’ve been vocal about how much I like this new way of releasing songs more frequently. It keeps me excited and gives me the opportunity to find the hot new song that I love and get it out to the fans quickly. I think they like it too. With five new songs on this album, you’ve got ‘God’s Country,’ ‘Hell Right’ and a few more that haven’t come out yet – maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that. But the fans will hear most of the music on ‘Fully Loaded’ before it hits the streets in December.”
Fully Loaded: God’s Country is due out on December 13th.
