Concert-goers can expect a night of songs filled with faith and the stories behind their creation. Designed like a Nashville songwriter’s round, this intimate concert experience will bring you closer to the music and allow you to see the heart behind the songs you love. This is Powell’s first CCM solo headlining tour since his time as the frontman of the four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning band Third Day.
“I have always loved songs and the process of writing them,” Mac Powell shares about the inspiration behind this tour. “For a long time, I’ve thought there should be a tour that focused specifically on the songs in their raw form. Each night on tour, we’re going to be sharing stories of faith and playing the hits you know and love in an intimate setting like they were written in. I’m honored to have Mike Donehey, Josh Baldwin, and David Leonard, who are great friends and incredible songwriters, joining me for this one-of-a-kind night and tour!”
