Matthew Smith and Indelible Grace are playing on Sept. 18 in Rincon. They take old lyrics and write new music to them for hymns that are hundreds of years old.
Smith is an East Nashville singer-songwriter who writes brand new music to centuries-old hymn texts.
He is a founding member of the Indelible Grace community, whose work has drawn acclaim across denominational lines and is used in churches around the world. Born out of a college ministry, the reimagined hymns have found wide acceptance both among college students and the church at large, joining people who desire to honor tradition with those who want a modern musical approach.
His latest album, “All I Owe,” focuses on how Jesus sets people free from the burden of both God’s law and self-imposed laws, by crediting his perfect life and death to those who trust in him.
