Insiders say the clean-cut Texan is a good guy for Lohan to have in her life. "He's a great influence on her, and her friends and family love him," a source close to the starlet tells Us

"He's older, a successful businessman, and he has been a great friend to her," the source adds. "He's also a Christian and won't drink around her. He's trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He's really good for her."
