“Over the past year, I have been incredibly blessed to travel around the world and lead worship,” Michael W. Smith shares. “Through those concerts and travels, I really felt called to come back to the song ‘Waymaker’ and build a concert experience with my band that focuses on songs that are encouraging, worshipful, and introspective; a tour that reminds people that God loves us and is here with us through everything. This fall we’ll kick it off in the states and go worldwide in 2023. It’s going to be so good to get out there with my band and I am absolutely honored that my good friend and worship leader Jon Reddick will be joining me for this fall leg. It will be a night you won’t forget!”
