Chris Tomlin was invited to the stage by the country music duo, Florida Georgia Line during their sold-out concert in Atlanta on August 31.
“We get to do something we’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” Florida Georgia Line’s, Tyler Hubbard told the audience. “God really does have a sense of humor. A few months back we got to meet one of our heroes, and we ended up connecting with him and building a friendship and a brotherhood. We ended up getting to write a lot of songs and been hanging out a ton.”
Hubbard went on to explain that he and bandmate Brian Kelley got their start in church “singing songs to Jesus.” And as they led worship they would often sing many of Tomlin’s songs.
The three sang Tomlin’s, “How Great is Our God” and ended the worship set by singing the hymn, “How Great Thou Art.”
Tomlin wrote on Instagram, “God is good. These two guys I’m standing next to are the real deal. Not afraid to use their stage to bring praise to God where the people are. Never seen something happen like what went down last night in Atlanta. God’s kingdom is so much bigger than we know and his ways are so much higher than ours.”
