“I Can Only Imagine” named official “Inspirational Song” of Oklahoma…

Who says Oklahoma politicians can't get anything done?

Earlier today, Mary Fallin signed into law HB 3473. It designates the contemporary Christian classic "I Can Only Imagine"– which was of course written by a native Texan – as the official inspirational song of Oklahoma. It was the basis for the Oklahoma-filmed Christian movie of the same name that Louis was in.

I listened to the song for the first time earlier today. It inspired me to take a nap. Check it out:

I'm not a big fan of contemporary Christian music. I think it should only be played in church, heaven or Hobby Lobby – but I actually think this is a great fit. Let's be honest, Oklahoma is a poor, conservative, churchy state (a.k.a boring), and I can't imagine a more fitting song to inspire us to stay that way. Plus, it's not country music. Anything is better than that.
