In today’s evolving world, some people are often heard saying that marriage is too difficult, or that the sanctity of marriage has been destroyed. Don’t tell that to television and movie star Kirk Cameron, who brings the Love Worth Fighting For: Marriage Event to the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on Sunday, Feb. 9, at 4 p.m.

For the last four years, Cameron, and musical guest Warren Barfield, have been spreading their passion and faith in the power of marriage at churches and complexes throughout the country by sharing their personal experiences and using the tools of music and humor to help eager couples who are either married or preparing to be.
