Zac Brown Sets Lineup for Music & Food Festivals
Charlie Daniels Band to join ZBB at Charleston, S.C., event.
Great music, great food and some impressive "friends." Zac Brown is combining two of his passions at the upcoming Southern Ground Music & Food Festivals, one of which will take place at Nashville's Riverfront Park this Sept. 21-22 and another that will come to Charleston, S.C.'s Blackbaud Stadium Oct. 20-21.
In Nashville, Zac Brown Band will perform nightly supersets with special guests including Gregg Allman, Amos Lee, David Gray, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and others.
In Charleston, ZBB will lead the bill with nightly performances, in addition to performances by The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and The Charlie Daniels Band.
Both events will feature Michael Franti & Spearhead, Jerry Douglas and Southern Ground recording artists including Sonia Leigh, Nic Cowan and Blackberry Smoke, among others.
The event debuted last year in Charleston. “This is our chance to give a full sensory experience to our fans. We’re trying to create exactly what I would want to have as my ultimate concert experience,” Zac told Countryweekly.com prior to the South Carolina event last year. Festivalgoers can expect two evenings of music and delicious offerings from the culinary world's best chefs, under the helm of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin, who travels with Zac on the road and puts together his famous Eat & Greets for select fans before shows.
