MICHAEL W. SMITH, TBN to Host Free Concert
At Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, Aug 30th
Local Pastors, Leaders to Join In Prayer During Event
FREE Event Open to Public
Nashville, Tenn (July 11, 2018) – TBN announces it will partner with three-time
Grammy Award-winning recording artist Michael W. Smith to present a free concert and
worship event at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, August 30th at 7 p.m.
“Surrounded: A Night to Pray, Worship and Be Awakened” is free to the public and will
begin with a time of prayer for the city of Nashville, surrounding communities, and the
nation, led by area pastors.
Following a time of prayer, Smith and his band will lead a Worship service from the floor
of the Bridgestone Arena – surrounded by those that attend. It is Smith’s hope that this
event crosses all denominational, ethnic, racial and generational lines for a real night of
Unity in middle Tennessee.
“The growth and energy happening in our city is not just material, but profoundly
spiritual,” said Smith. “It’s time for a night of prayer and worship for Middle Tennessee.
My hope is that individuals, families and even whole congregations will attend
‘Surrounded’ for a night we’ll never forget.”
The event will be taped, with plans from TBN to air “Surrounded” as a network special
later in the fall.
All seating will be general admission; doors open at 6 p.m. For more information visit
