New music, new book, new world tour & record-setting ‘Good Friday Nashville’

Press Release

Grammy-winning artist Chris Tomlin, whom Time Magazine heralded as the “most often sung artist in the world,” is embarking on one of the busiest years of his career in 2024 as he announces a new live album, hosts “Good Friday Nashville” for the eighth year – which sold-out three weeks in advance and created an opportunity to open more seating for ticket buyers (www.goodfridaynashville.com) – prepares to release a new book, and kicks off a world tour this spring.

Tomlin spoke exclusively with the Tennessean about all his exciting plans including “Good Friday Nashville” and donating the show proceeds.

“This should be something the community does together,” he said. “It takes a great expense to do something like this, but I wanted to give away the profits. We decided that year one. It felt like God was putting wind in our sails. Since we were giving it away, he was like, 'I'm gonna blow the doors off this place.' It's been that way since day one.”

On March 15, Tomlin will release “Live From Good Friday,” an 11-track album of live recordings from his record-breaking “Good Friday Nashville” concerts at Bridgestone Arena. Among them is one of the fastest-growing songs in the church right now and one of his largest consumed songs each week in his distinguished catalog, with over 140 million streams: “Holy Forever.” The Grammy-nominated, six-week No. 1 single, which has become one of the most significant songs of his 20-year-plus career, has catapulted his impact and visibility as one of the most influential worship leaders of the era.

Additional songs on the live album include his world-renowned “How Great Is Our God” and “Good Good Father.”

  6. “Is He Worthy”

  8. “Whom Shall I Fear (God Of Angel Armies) (feat. George Mhondera)”
  9. “Always”
  10. “Precious Love”
  11. “It Is Well”

“Good Friday Nashville” returns once again to Bridgestone Arena on Friday, March 29. The event sold out yesterday, which allowed organizers to adjust the production set-up, creating room for more seats to be open for sale. Its impressive eight-year run has become the venue's longest-running annual charity-related concert and a tentpole event for the city.

This year’s star-studded lineup includes Willie Robertson, best known for starring in and executive producing A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” who will deliver a powerful Easter message; and CCM powerhouse Kari Jobe and fast-growing sensation Anne Wilson, who will be joining Chris as special guest performers. The evening will continue the annual tradition of including surprise guests, which have previously included the likes of Rascal Flatts, Lady A, Lauren Daigle, CeCe Winans, and Hillsong UNITED.

All remaining tickets are available now for $25 at Good Friday Nashville. “Good Friday Nashville” benefits the foster care and adoption crisis through For Others, a nonprofit organization created by Chris 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.

On March 19, Tomlin will release “How Great is Our God: Living a Worship-Led Life in a Me-Driven World” (K-LOVE Books) in celebration of one of his most impactful songs. The book invites readers to redefine worship beyond music. Tomlin uses his experience as a worship artist and an impressive songbook to provide readers with tools for living a God-centered life.

As one of the most successful Christian touring artists today, Tomlin has sold out venues everywhere including New York City’s Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Red Rocks in Denver. In April, he will launch the “Holy Forever World Tour” performing shows across the U.S. and embarking on his first overseas dates in more than a decade. More dates are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Go to www.christomlin.com for more details and tickets.

Tomlin has scored 21 No. 1 singles, 30 top 10 hits (more than any other Christian artist), and spent more than 158 weeks at No. 1 during his career. He’s sold more than 12 million, has 6.8 billion career global streams, and he has won a Grammy, three Billboard Music Awards, 29 Dove Awards. Tomlin is a two-time BMI Songwriter of the Year honoree and an ASCAP Songwriter of the Year. In 2016, he was named one of only four artists ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 billion digital radio streams, alongside Justin Timberlake, Pitbull and Garth Brooks. Tomlin is also the first Christian artist to reach the billion streams threshold on Pandora and was presented with the BILLIONAIRE award.
