Congratulations to Thomas Rhett, who recently married longtime girlfriend Lauren Gregory! The newlyweds had just enough time to escape on a honeymoon before Thomas hits the road on Chris Young’s Liquid Neon Tour.
Thomas’ new single, “Beer with Jesus,” is about going to bar to sit and talk with Jesus over a couple of beers. The song is bringing about interesting reactions from fans.
“Every time I play that song live, a lot of people will cry,” Thomas said. “I’ve had a preacher come up to me saying, ‘Man, I would love to get you up to Wisconsin and sing that song at our church service.’”
The preacher’s request is one Thomas never expected to receive. He co-wrote the song and while he was raised with strict beliefs, his time in college molded those beliefs into what he sings about.
“When I got to college some of my beliefs kind of changed and that’s just a song that I personally believe that how Jesus would have been if he were here,” he said. “That song means so much to me and to my family.”
