Mainstream country music artist Thomas Rhett on Monday appeared on Fox News to perform his hit “Beer With Jesus.”

“I like this title, ‘Beer With Jesus,’” Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson told Rhett. “What is it about?”

As it turns out, “Beer With Jesus” is about having a brewski with the Christian savior, Jesus of Nazareth.

“If I could have a beer with Jesus / Heaven knows I’d sip it nice and slow / I’d try to pick a place that ain’t too crowded / Or gladly go wherever he wants to go,” Rhett sings.

“You can bet I’d order up a couple tall ones / Tell the waitress put ‘em on my tab / I’d be sure to let him do the talkin’ / Careful when I got the chance to ask,” the song continues.

During his fantasy bar chat, Rhett says he would probe the Son of God about what happens to his prayers, what happens after death and exactly when would Christ be returning for the Second Coming, when many Christians believe the Kingdom of God will be established on Earth.

“He can probably only stay, for just a couple rounds,” the song concludes. “But I hope and pray he’s stayin’ till we shut the whole place down.”

But not every believer has been as enthusiastic as Carlson about the song.

“Why not just have some water with Jesus?” Christian News reader Marshall Chandler asked last year. “This is a prime example of how far down the toilet country music has gotten.”

Rhett’s song debuted at 49 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in September, and had reached the number 26 spot by last week.
