Country band Rascal Flatts joined Christian singers Chris Tomlin and Tauren Wells on stage for an unforgettable performance that moved worshippers to tears. 

On March 30, 2018, Wells not only hosted but also performed at Worship Night Gospel Event at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. He was joined on stage by contemporary Christian singer and leader, Chris Tomlin.

The duo had a surprise for the audience, and the crowd went wild when Ohio-based country music band, Rascal Flatts, was introduced.

Together with Wells and Tomlin, they gave a heartrending performance of How Great Thou Art. As reported by God Updates, it was a momentous moment for Tomlin.

He told the audience that he 'could not believe that' was about to share the stage with the Rascal Flatts, and leading the crowd in worship was a tremendous honor for him. 

The crowd thoroughly enjoyed the performance as they sang along, their hands raised high in praise to the Almighty. At the end of the performance, the musicians received a standing ovation.

The Rascal Flatts formed nearly two decades ago when Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney, and Jay DeMarcus joined forces. 

They rose to fame in 2006 when they recorded Cochrane's Life is a Highway for the animated film, Cars. Their rendition reached the top 10 spot on the Hot 100 Charts.

The track soon made it to the top 20 spot on the Hot Country Songs chart, and the album remained at the number 1 spot on the Billboard Country Chart for almost four months. 

The band became a household named when they teamed up with Carrie Underwood the following year at the Grammy Awards.

Their most recent projects include the release of their 10th album, Back To Us, in May 2017, as well as their fundraising efforts for the Make A Wish Foundation, the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital and the Red Cross. 

According to the Tennessean, the band has worked tirelessly over the years to raise millions of dollars for the Children's Hospital. A portion of the funds went to opening the Pediatric Surgery Center eight years ago.
