Country music’s Florida Georgia Line invited renowned worship leader and Christian music artist Chris Tomlin up to the stage during their sold-out Atlanta concert last week.

While onstage, the band’s Tyler Hubbard explained that the group was thrilled to be able to welcome Tomlin to the stage.

“We get to do something we’ve been looking forward to a long time,” Hubbard said. “God really does have a sense of humor. A few months back we got to meet one of our heroes, and we ended up connecting with him and building a friendship and a brotherhood. We ended up getting to write a lot of songs and been hanging out a ton.”

Band members Hubbard and Brian Kelley — who have long been fans of Tomlin’s work — played Christian music together when they were younger, singing songs from Tomlin’s massive songbook in church.

“This is probably one of the coolest moments for us,” Hubbard added. “It’s truly a full-circle God thing.”

As Tomlin took the stage, he said, “This is crazy! I’ve sung this song over the world and now I’m here with these two brothers.”

The musicians then broke into a rendition of “How Great is Our God,” followed by “How Great Thou Art.”

The band shared video of the performance on Facebook Tuesday, captioning it, “Still in awe that happened[.] video is 6 minutes long but I swear it’s worth it.”

At the time of this writing, it has been viewed more than 1.9 million times.

    You know that a Line is being drawn in the sand! The gauntlet has been thrown down and people will have to make a decision for or against Christ. That is the point where we find ourselves in right now. Jesus said “Choose you this day whom you will serve” People have a decision to make that will decide where they spend Eternity. God already did his part by sending his Holy Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. He abolished the punishment for all of humanity, but we Must accept that Gift of Redemption. God will not push himself on anyone. God is a gentleman, He said “Here is Life, and Here is Death, CHOOSE Life” “For God SOOOOO Loved the World that He GAVE His ONLY begotten Son, That whosoever believes on Him, shall not perish but have everlasting Life” Accept Him in your heart today, decide to serve the God that Loves you so much. Ask him into your heart, ask him to forgive you of all of your sins, past, present and future, and He will. Amen

    I’ve gotten away from Country in the last few years, I’ve heard of this band, but couldn’t name you any of their songs, having said that I just became a Big Fan!
