Earlier this week we brought you Family Baptist Church Pastor Joe Nelms prayer offered before the Nationwide Series race in Nashville, TN. We should have known that BEFORE THE WEEK WAS OUT somebody would auto-tune his prayer and turn it into a country song. Of COURSE they did!
Many pre-game, pre-race or pre-anything prayers can be somewhat lifeless, long and cliche-ridden affairs. But clearly Pastor Joe Nelms of the Family Baptist Church in Nashville, TN, is a more joyfully honest soul. Either that, or we should call him Pastor Ricky Bobby. How else could you explain his pre-Nationwide Series race prayer this last weekend in Nashville?
