Praise the lawd. Chris Tomlin is turning 50 this year, and is still writing those musical love letters to Jesus.
During lockdown, he released Chris Tomlin & Friends, a new album featuring an all-star lineup of country and Christian musicians including Lady A, Thomas Rhett, and Florida Georgia Line.
His new tour, which stops at Tampa’s Amalie Arena next week,
doesn’t have an all-star lineup big enough to fill, say, Raymond James Stadium, but it doesn’t hurt that he’s closing for Hillsong United—a church the New York Times says
“has lost nine of its 16 American church campuses” in the last three weeks after both a high-profile pastor and the church’s founder were caught in scandals.
There aren’t any vaccine requirements for entry, but you should have it by now anyway. It was a gift from God, you ungrateful heathen.
