NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (February 5, 2024) – Grammy winning artist and America’s worship leader Chris Tomlin continues to make history returning to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday, March 29 for his eighth annual Good Friday Nashville concert, the venue's longest running annual charity related concert. Tickets available now at Good Friday Nashville.
Chris, whom the Tennessean claims is ‘as much a faith leader as a songwriter, able to parlay his faith in spirituality into influential and popular music,’ has invited Willie Robertson, best known for starring in and executive producing A&E’s Duck Dynasty, to deliver a powerful Easter message. It was also announced today that CCM powerhouse Kari Jobe will be joining Chris as a special guest and more exciting guests will be announced soon. Good Friday Nashville will also continue the annual tradition of including special surprise guests which have previously included the likes of Rascal Flatts, Lady A, Lauren Daigle, CeCe Winans, Hillsong UNITED, and many others.
“For the last seven years I have had the humbling opportunity to watch what God can do in a community when we gather together to look upwards towards Him and outward towards Others. From people’s faith being reignited to innocent children finding forever families, Good Friday Nashville has had a powerful and lasting impact on our community and year 8 will be no exception,” shared Tomlin. “And of course, we can’t forget all the incredible guests that will join us… Kari Jobe and Willie Robertson are just the start! We have more exciting announcements coming soon… and you are not going to believe the surprises we have lined up for the night! I hope you grab tickets and join us for this incredible moment - I have high expectations for what God will do.”
Good Friday Nashville benefits the foster care and adoption crisis through ‘For Others’, a non-profit organization created by Tomlin and his wife Lauren. ‘For Others’ aims to be a voice for the vulnerable by living out their mission of raising awareness and empowering best-in-class organizations to end the child welfare crisis in America.
Since its inception in 2017 Good Friday Nashville has continued to be a record setting night with sold-out concerts and smashed attendance records which have helped it to become the largest ticketed Christian concert in the history of the venue. Good Friday Nashville also reigns as the longest running annual charity related concert at Bridgestone.
In 2020 and 2021 Good Friday Nashville became a virtual event due to the pandemic allowing worldwide distribution through television and radio partners reaching 32 countries around the globe. In 2022 and 2023 global audiences were again reached through exclusive livestreams with Facebook and YouTube.
Good Friday Nashville is promoted & produced by Awakening Events who have enjoyed a 18-year touring relationship with Chris and generously donate their time, energy, and resources to this concert each year. Good Friday Nashville is presented by K-LOVE, Air1, The Fish and WAY-FM.
