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,' 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 radio singles, along with the distinction of becoming the second act ever to top both the country and active rock formats.
In 1903, on the corner of 17th and McGavock, the Addison Ave. Cumberland Presbyterian Church built a beautiful brick sanctuary. In 1968, Fred Foster, founder of Monument Records, purchased the church and converted it into a recording studio. In 2012, Zac Brown bought the same building and transformed it into a first-class facility that inspires creation and satisfies the appetites of artists and musicians from around the world.
Opening to capacity crowds in the summer of 2002, the Southern Ground Amphitheater is rockin’ along into its eleventh year of operation. Located in the heart of downtown Fayetteville, the amphitheater hosts everything from internationally known artists to movie nights under the stars and has a capacity seating of 1,500 along with a 50 foot stage.
