The country gone to town as Nashville hosts the 2019 NFL Draft

More than 150,000 people packed lower Broadway in Nashville for the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Some of the country songs riding the charts at the time seem to define the Nashville Draft:

  • “Eyes On You” by Chase Rice,
  • “On My Way To You” by Cody Johnson,
  • “I Don’t Know About You” by Chris Lane,
  • “Thought About You” by Tim McGraw,
  • “Closer To You” by Carly Pearce
  • “Love You Too Late” by Cole Swindle,
  • “Keeping Score” by Dan + Shay featuring Kelly Clarkson,
  • “Look What God Gave Her” by Thomas Rhett, (for the women owners)
  • “Make It Sweet” by Old Dominion,
  • “Talk You Out Of It” by Florida Georgia Line, ” and
  • “Feels Like A Party” by LOCAS

The Nashville Draft also inspired me to write these thoughts:

What church can learn from the NFL Draft in Nashville: You can draw a crowd without letting one man hog the mic!

I love seeing so many players and their families praising God for their dreams coming true!

NFL teams draft for a sport; NFL fans for fantasy. But life’s most important picks are those that make a better you!

The draft grades for your choices in life will be clearly communicated in the consequences they create.

God makes everyone a first round pick, but many people refuse to hear His choice, go to the podium, and face the crowd in His name.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
