Zac Brown Band
Three-time GRAMMY-winning multiplatinum artists Zac Brown Band will kick off their 40+ date “WELCOME HOME” 2017 North American tour and release their new album of the same name May 12th, the follow-up to ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ (Southern Ground Artists/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records) the band’s fourth consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart.
2016 was a record-breaking year for Zac Brown Band. Their “BLACK OUT THE SUN” tour broke attendance records at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion and Boston’s Fenway Park, and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum hosted a career-spanning exhibition exploring the group’s rise to fame. All this built on the group’s three platinum-selling albums (‘Uncaged,’ ‘You Get What You Give,’ and ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’), 5X platinum ‘The Foundation,’ their 2013 project ‘The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1,’ 25 million singles and eight million albums sold, and a historic fifteen #1 hit radio singles, along with the distinction of becoming the second act ever to top both the country and active rock formats.
