Went to see Anthem Lights at the Smoky Mountain Center for Performing Arts. The venue was very nice. Ushers escorted you to your seats. Sound was very good. Great place. Looked new but was actually almost 10 years old.

This place often has very family-friendly and appropriate entertainment. They are Christian-based so provide many opportunities to see Christian artists from all over the country. Beautiful architecture as well seen here.
