Some serious symmetry is going into Zac Brown Band‘s upcoming months. Their latest studio album is going to be released online and in stores on May 12, the exact same evening that they will be hitting the stage at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Alpharetta, Georgia to begin their 2017 tour.
For fans interested in attending one or more shows in the upcoming run of dates starring the Atlanta-based group, tickets are only a few clicks away. Here are four things fans should know heading into this tour.
Four x Four and Such
The tour will be the Zac Brown Band’s fourth in total, and the fourth in the last four years. The initial took place in 2014, and it was essentially a welcome to the country music audience that included shows in Lincoln, Nebraska and several other Midwestern venues. The 2015 Jekyll + Hyde Tour started in Nashville and wrapped in Palm Beach, Florida. Last year’s Black Out The Tour spanned a decent portion of the calendar year.
In 2017, fans will be able to utilize multiple opportunities to see the famed group, beginning in mid-May and ending in mid-October. They are currently putting together a set list and rehearsing a show filled with a few surprises. Fanfare is building leading up to live performances. The group will be able to access a total of seven studio albums by the time they take the stage, as 2017’s Welcome Home will drop on the aforementioned Friday in mid-May.
The group’s first studio release came in 2004, and The Foundation officially put them on the country and rock music radar in 2008. By 2009, they were beginning to be nominated for awards.
They were initially bestowed the honor of Academy of Country Music Best New Vocal Group in 2009, and it quickly followed with the CMT Music Awards trophy for Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Chicken Fried.” They were nominated for a slew of awards in the spring and summer months of 2010, before they finally struck gold by winning the Country Music Association Awards New Artist of the Year.
2011 was a year that featured a wide array of nominations by all of the most famous country music outlets, and the esteemed honors followed in the years since. Some bands that walk a true path of greatness judge themselves by Grammy Awards, and the Zac Brown Band has won exactly three of those over the course of a total of eight nominations.
