Like the film itself, the soundtrack to Robert Duvall's The Apostle is a carefully crafted, subtly brilliant collection of contemporary country and gospel. The songs offer an excellent overview of gospel, particularly country gospel, music. Traditional gospel tune "There Is Power in the Blood" is performed by  Lari White and there are great contributions from Johnny Cash, Russ Taff, Bill Gaither, and the Carter Family, among others. The result is a spellbinding album and one of the rare soundtracks that stands on its own merits.
