What songs will the Zac Brown Band play in concert?
The Zac Brown Band has nine number one country tracks at their disposal, which is almost enough to fill in a setlist unto itself. Without enough room to belt out every major tune, unexpected home runs, or the slathering of covers the band loves to bring out on every date, one of your favorite tracks will unfortunately find itself left off the setlist. But with so much material left to choose from, missing that major single favorite may not be so bad.
Despite all this, a few standards appear at every show. The band closes their initial set before the encore with their breakthrough single and the song that put them on the map: “Chicken Fried.” The Spanish flavored tune “Toes” appears often, though it may be very early in the set, or following a larger ballad number, such as “Goodbye in her Eyes.”
The group is known for their rather unconventional set closing with a pairing of covers including Led Zeppelin’s blues rock epic “Kashmir” and the monstrously pumping hard rock adventure, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” from the Charlie Daniels Band. They work brilliantly together at wrapping up the evening and making for an intriguing choice compared to signing off courtesy of a big single from the band.
The aforementioned covers are a bit more common, but in recent sets the group has belted out a country rendition of “Enter Sandman” from Metallica. The Zac Brown Band likes to name drop some great covers including Billy Joel’s narrative masterpiece “Piano Man” or Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic.”
You may not hear every above mentioned cover song, but the group reliably belts out 2-3 at every show.
As She’s Walking Away

Keep Me in Mind

What kind of crowd should I expect?
The Zac Brown band has this incredible crossover appeal that brings in more than the traditional country band and the persona they carry. Younger crowds really embrace the group, for they have a strong pop sound that works in a typical radio format. On the other hand, their balladry is pure country, and it appeals to an older adult-contemporary demographic. The show is pure music, and not based on big theatrics. Fans that enjoy the music on its own merit will love the show, and the band loves to chat with the audience and talk amongst themselves between songs.
Who is Zac Brown Band’s publicist and press contact?
The Zac Brown Band is absurdly accessible. Unlike many artists, they make it oh-so easy to get in touch with anyone on the team and for any purpose. Visit the official Zac Brown Band website to contact exactly who you want. There are boxes for fan club, publicist, each individual band member, and booking.

“The Zac Brown Band knows how to show fans a good time. Over the course of its two-hour concert Saturday at the SAP Center in San Jose, the Atlanta act played more than a half-dozen of its own No. 1 country hits; covered tunes by Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Metallica, Led Zeppelin and Stevie Wonder; donned glow-in-the-dark skeleton costumes; and invited Dave Grohl to the stage for a take on the Foo Fighters’ great “Times Like These.” Now that’s a party.” – Jim Harrington of the Mercury News
“The fans proved their dedication by singing along even the Spanish parts to the 2009 song “Toes.” [They] finally closed with their hit song that put them on the charts back in 2008, “Chicken Fried.” Whether you are a Zac Brown Band fan or not, this was the song worth waiting to the end for.” – Lora Olive of NUVO
“The band’s widespread success has earned a relatively diverse audience. While its nine No. 1 hits have all come on the country charts, the usual moonlight cowboy and cowgirl couture that comes out of the closets of local country concert crowds was less seen on this scene. What we’re seeing instead is the emergence of an American melting pot party band with unlimited potential.” – Seamus Gallivan of the Buffalo News
