Those who attended Florida Georgia Line‘s concert in Atlanta, Georgia on August 31 were in for a big surprise.
In the middle of the show, Tyler Hubbard started teasing something they were about to do, saying, “We get to do something we’ve been looking forward to a long time now. We’ve never done this before.”
He then when on to share how excited he was that they were about to do what they were going to do. “This is probably one of the coolest moments for us. Truly a full circle God-thing,” he said.
That’s when Hubbard announced that they had a special guest in the house…famous Christian recording artist Chris Tomlin.

… 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. @floridageorgialine @tylerhubbard @briankelley
As one of the most beloved figures in Christian music, 47-year-old Tomlin has sold over seven million records over the course of his career. Some of his most recognizable songs include “How Great Is Our God,” “Whom Shall I Fear (God Of Angel Armies),” and his cover of “Good Good Father.”
The first song in that list is one that Tomlin performed after he took to the stage at Florida Georgia Line’s concert. “I’ve sung this song all over the world and being here tonight with these two brothers…we’re just going to have a moment to give God praise in Atlanta,” Tomlin said before he started singing “How Great Is Our God.”
Florida Georgia Line provided some backup support, but mainly let Tomlin take control of the performance. Many members of the crowd could also be heard singing along to the song.
One of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had- worshipping at a Florida Georgia Line concert. It was AMAZING to see Chris Tomlin join FGL tonight and absolutely beautiful. #christomlin #floridageorgialine #danandshay pic.twitter.com/4wQEWZcbHU

The trio wrapped up their surprise worship performance with a short rendition of the classic hymn, “How Great Thou Art.” By the time the performers were through, the audience was left stunned over what they just witnessed.
“Still in awe that happened,” read Florida Georgia Line’s Facebook post containing a full video of Tomlin’s performance, including Hubbard’s introduction of him. You can catch that clip below.
