New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
For fans of the classic sound of country music, one group that does its best to give fans that sound is the Zac Brown Band. The group, made up of Zac Brown, Jimmy De Martini, John Driskell Hopkins, Coy Bowles, Chris Fryar, Clay Cook, and Daniel de los Reyes, has been together since 2002 and have released five albums since forming. They are based out of Atlanta, Ga. and are known for their great sounds. The group is already out on their 2014 tour around the world, playing at many of the most popular venues including The Amphitheatre at the Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama and Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Forest Hills, New York.
Zac Brown Band released their first album in 1999, but the self-released record didn’t pick up any steam. They would release one more album on their own before signing a record deal with Atlantic, Home Grown and Bigger Picture. The album, The Foundation, has sold more than three million copies in the United States. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard country charts and No. 9 on the Billboard 200 charts. In 2010, they released You Get What You Give, which sold more than 1.5 million copies and reached the top of the Billboard 200 charts, as did their 2012 release, Uncaged.
The group has released numerous singles that have charted on the national and country charts. Among their most popular songs that fans of Zac Brown Band will want to hear them perform live include “Chicken Fried,” “Toes,” “Highway 20 Ride,” “Colder Weather,” “Keep Me in Mind,” “Free,” “Sweet Annie,” “Jump Right In,” “As She’s Walking Away,” featuring Alan Jackson and “Knee Deep” featuring Jimmy Buffett.
When Zac Brown Band hits the road for a tour, seats sell out quickly and two of the venues that are sure to be filled to capacity when they perform this year are The Amphitheatre at the Wharf and Forest Hills Stadium.
The Amphitheatre at the Wharf opened in May 2006 and has been the home to numerous sold out concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music. Among the previous stars to sell out shows here include Jason Aldean, Hank Williams, Jr., Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Def Leppard and Journey. This show will take place on June 5 and tickets will go on sale on March 21.
For their show at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, the Grammy Award winning country stars will be one of the first acts to perform after a complete renovation. Just six performances have been announced for the venue which originally opened in 1923. The venue used to be the host to the U.S. Open and has previously hosted concerts from The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. Last year, the venue hosted a Mumford & Sons concert with more than 17,000 tickets sold, but capacity will be cut down this year in order to ensure all fans get the seats they paid for after many fans complained.
Fans of the Zac Brown Band will want to get their tickets early to make sure they have a seats for this amazing band at the Jiffy Lube Live, Susquehanna Bank Center, Forest Hills Stadium, Aarons Amphitheatre at Lakewood, and the show at The Amphitheater at The Wharf.
