Maverick City Music was founded in 2018 as a music collective and a record label. Founders Tony Brown and Jonathan Jay desired to create a space for people “that would otherwise live in their own separate worlds.” Together, the collective aims to spread the gospel. Moreover, Brown and Jay wanted to push boundaries and explore creativity for gospel music, which was otherwise trapped within the margins of traditional church music.
Since 2020, the group has released six live albums and seven EPs. Their 2021 album, Old Church Basement (with Elevation Worship), peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and Top Gospel Albums chart. Meanwhile, their 2021 EP, Move Your Heart, also peaked at number 1 on the Top Gospel Albums chart. In 2022, Maverick City Music won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Old Church Basement.
Maverick City Music’s co-headliner, Kirk Franklin, has had many accomplishments in the gospel music scene. The “Reigning King of Urban Gospel” has won 23 Dove Awards, 16 Grammy Awards, and one American Music Award. Some of his most notable awards include Traditional Gospel Album of the Year, Urban Album of the Year, Gospel Artist of the Year, and Best Gospel Song/Performance.
Together, Maverick City Music and Kirk Franklin will bring their brand of contemporary gospel music to Tampa Bay. Moreover, the Kingdom Tour also features Jonathan McReynolds and Housefires as special guests. Get your tickets now to experience this summer’s most inspirational gospel concert!
