NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It was a sold out concert at Bridgestone Arena on Good Friday.

Chris Tomlin brought down the house for his "Good Friday Nashville" show.

It's his third year playing Bridgestone on Good Friday, and the proceeds go to the group Tennessee Kids Belong.

Tomlin says he hoped Bridgestone Arena served as a refuge from the outside world that he says can be a little much at times.

"The world tries to label us, the world is good at labeling people: you're successful, you're not, you're Republican, Democrat, married, single, divorced. We are good at labeling people and what I hope people walk out thinking is, above all those things is God and He has a label for you as well: you're a son and a daughter," Tomlin said.

If you missed this year's show, Tomlin is booked for Good Friday at Bridgestone all the way through 2024.
