Wednesday Video Spotlight: Kristin Chenoweth sings "Jesus, Take the Wheel" on "GCB"
Broken Arrow native Kristin Chenoweth’s version of “Jesus, Take The Wheel,” which propelled fellow Okie Carrie Underwood to her first No. 1 single, made a splash after Chenoweth debuted her version on her soapy new ABC show “GCB.”
“GCB” airs at 9 p.m. Sundays on the ABC Television Network. Each Sunday, the ABC Music Lounge will feature songs from that week’s “GCB” episode and video clips from the show. The “GCB” soundtrack will be available from Elektra Nashville May 8. Fans can click on www.abcmusiclounge.com or visit iTunes each week to purchase the featured song. Chenoweth’s “Blessed Be the Ties That Bind,” The JaneDear girls’ “Good Girls Gone Bad,” Emily West’s “Cross My Heart” and Don Derby’s “Roll In The Hay” are also available now.
“GCB” is based on Kim Gaitlin’s book “Good Christian Bitches,” however, ABC has said the show’s name stands for “Good Christian Belles.” Chenoweth, portrays the character Carlene Cockburn, nemesis of character Amanda Vaughn, portrayed by actress Leslie Bibb. The show focuses on Amanda as she returns to her hometown of Dallas.
The show has been controversial because of its portrayal of Christians, and The Oklahoman’s Religion Editor Carla Hinton recently asked state viewers to weigh in on the show. To read her story, click here.
