“Waking up Tuesday morning to witness the devasting effect the March 3 tornado had on my home state was heart breaking,” shared Chris. “Knowing that in just a month I would be at Bridgestone Arena for the annual ‘Good Friday Nashville’ event it was clear that this disaster needed to become the recipient of all of this year’s proceeds. My hope is that this night creates ripples of lasting impact, community, and love across Middle Tennessee.”
Tomlin also revealed that multi-platinum, award-winning duo Florida Georgia Line, who were originally planned as surprise guests, will perform on the fourth-annual ‘Good Friday Nashville’ concert. It was also announced that ‘America’s Pastor’ and best-selling Christian author Max Lucado who will join as guest speaker.
“In Nashville and all across the state of Tennessee we have seen such a resilience in the human spirit as strangers have become like neighbors and deeper community has formed out of tragedy. In each of the previous ‘Good Friday’ concerts there has been an unannounced special appearance in the night and this year’s is just too good to keep a secret! I am so grateful and honored to announce my good friends Tyler and Brian of Florida Georgia Line. Beyond their unmatched talent and success, these two men have a beautiful heart for people! What an impactful night of music we have planned for ‘Good Friday.’” —Chris Tomlin
Last fall, Chris joined Tyler and Brian on stage during their CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR stop in Atlanta, Georgia for a powerful live collaboration of “How Great Is Our God.” Chris shared more on the friendship with People magazine.
“We’ve experienced being on stage with Chris and it’s truly a God thing,” said Tyler. “Since then we’ve built a friendship and brotherhood with one of our musical heroes. We’re honored to stand with him and help lift up our Nashville community.” Added Brian, “we’ve been keeping our appearance at ‘Good Friday’ under wraps for a while now. It’s really going to be a powerful night.”
“And I can think of no one better suited to share a message of hope to a city and community in need over Easter weekend than our guest speaker and my friend, Max Lucado,” shared Chris. “Thank you, Max, for coming back a third time, always leading with love, and generously investing in this community.”
Chris’ previous three ‘Good Friday Nashville’ concerts (2017-2019) impacted Nashville and the state of Tennessee with proceeds going to Tennessee Kids Belong for the foster care and adoption crisis. Chris has committed to host the yearly concerts indefinitely, currently holding Bridgestone through 2024, as each event gives back to the community.
‘Good Friday Nashville’ is produced by Awakening Events and is presented by K-LOVE, Air1, The Fish and WAY-FM.
