Brandon Lake And Thomas Rhett To Team Up For Powerful Rendition of “Talking To Jesus” Live From The Historic Ryman Auditorium
Brandon Lake, GRAMMY® Award winner, joins forces with Thomas Rhett, CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year, for a moving performance of “Talking to Jesus” live from the historic stage of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN (4/16). Before introducing Thomas Rhett, Lake gave fans an insight into their friendship and how they bonded over their love for Jesus and recalled the work God is doing in their lives. A sold-out crowd at Lake’s MIRACLE NIGHTS TOUR stop stood to bow as the two stars sang every word rejoicing at “what a friend we have in Jesus.” Not only have Lake and Thomas Rhett prepared this special surprise for the residents of Nashville, but the audio of the performance is now available on all digital streaming platforms, and the accompanying live video is now available. The album “Talking to Jesus” was originally recorded and performed by Lake on Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music’s “Old Church Basement”, which has amassed over 500 million streams.
Brandon Lake And Thomas Rhett were both excited about the project and made a comment. Lake shares his appreciation about the project, he said;
“Collaborating with Thomas Rhett, a friend who I admire, respect, and draw inspiration from, has been a dream come true. This song has allowed us to create something that is a further testament to the transformative power of God’s presence in our lives. I’m humbled and blessed by this, and excited to see the impact of this for years to come.”
Thomas, who also feels the same about the collaboration has this to say:
“Brandon is such a great artist and an even better person – I’m lucky to call him a close friend. We’ve had a lot of good conversations about our faith and this night at the Ryman really captured that. Everybody in the room came together – it’s definitely one of those moments I will never forget.”
