“Sam’s Place – Music for the Spirit” takes its name from charismatic evangelist Samuel Porter Jones (1847-1906), who gained fame in the region for his energetic sermons filled of fire and brimstone during the mid-1800s. On May 10, 1885, he led a tent revival in downtown Nashville for more than 5,000 which was attended by riverboat captain Thomas Green Ryman (1841-1904.) Ryman experienced a conversion that night and, inspired by the multitude unable to find room under the tent, made it his mission to construct a great tabernacle “for all denominations” to join in worship. Seven years later, the Union Gospel Tabernacle opened its doors in 1892. It was Jones, while delivering Ryman’s eulogy at the Tabernacle on Christmas Day in 1904, who proposed the building’s name be changed to Ryman Auditorium to thunderous agreement.

Host Chapman is the most awarded artist in Christian music with fifty-eight Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five Grammy® Awards, forty-eight #1 singles and eleven million albums sold. As part of the Christian music scene since the 1980s, he has eight RIAA-certified gold or platinum albums to his credit. A vocal supporter of adoption, Chapman, along with his wife Mary Beth, founded Show Hope in 2003, a nonprofit organization is a movement to help care for the millions of orphans around the world, helping to provide waiting orphans with forever homes by giving financial grants to adoptive families. Show Hope is now an internationally recognized voice for orphan advocacy and has given more than 5,000 orphans in 50+ countries, including the U.S. In addition, more than 1,500 orphans with special needs have received critically needed medical care through Show Hope’s Special Care Centers, giving them a hope for a family and a future. Through numerous other programs, Show Hope empowers families, churches and communities with adoption and orphan care resources and advocacy efforts to change the world for orphans.
