I like everything about Zac Brown Band. I loved “Chicken Fried”. I really love “Whatever It Is.” And I think “Toes” is great!
Oh, there is one thing I do not like about Zac Brown Band , and that is the fact that they canceled their show at the Washington County Fair in Abingdon, Va., on Sept. 16, 2009. I was planning to go, too. But I guess I’ll have to find them somewhere else. Seriously, guys, it would have been fantastic to see you in September. Sorry you aren’t going to make it.
It kind of looks like something better came up for the guys, I can’t really blame them for passing on our little fair to open for Kenny Chesney at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, Ill., on Sept. 17. I guess with that kind of gig lined up, it would have been a lot to expect them to keep our little fair in their touring plans. Maybe we can look for them next year. One can only hope.
If you missed Zac Brown Band this summer, now is your chance to see them live as ZZB embarks on their first headlining tour. The 2009 Breaking Southern Ground Tour will kick off on Sept. 24 in Cary, N.C., along with Southern Ground Artists Levi Lowery, Nic Cowan and Sonia Leigh.
The short tour will put the guys in Cary, N.C., at Koka Booth Amphitheatre at Regency Park on Sept. 24; Heritage Park Amphitheater in Simpsonville, S.C., on Sept. 25, and the Uptown Amphitheater in Charlotte, N.C. on Sept. 26.
You can catch them at the Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie, Texas, on Oct. 2; the World’s Fair Park in Knoxville, on Oct. 9; and Family Circle Magazine Stadium in Charleston, S.C., on Oct. 10. Knoxville? Knoxville? Did someone say Knoxville? I just might be able to make that one!
And of course, joining Zac on this great tour are members of the band include bassist John Hopkins, fiddler Jimmy De Martini and more recent additions of guitarist/organist Coy Bowles and drummer Chris Fryar. In January of 2009 multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Clay Cook joined the band; perhaps best known for his co-writes with Grammy-winner John Mayer, Cook rounds out the ZBB sound on guitar, vocals, organ, mandolin and pedal steel.
Here’s that ‘toes in the sand’ song for you. Enjoy!
Later, guys! Have a great Friday!
