The multi-Grammy-Award-winning Zac Brown Band is returning to Blossom Music Center on Friday, June 14, 2019. This tour, The Owl Tour will feature the latest Zac Brown single release, “Someone That I Used to Know.” A new album release is rumored to be on the horizon as well, which would be ZBB’s first since 2017’s ‘Welcome Home.’
This tour is said to be inspired by the mythology and mystery of the Great Horned Owl (also known as the Tiger Owl), an extremely adaptable bird with a vast range. Zac himself has described the owl as, “a magical thing, symbolizing wisdom and foreshadowing”.
The Owl Tour is expected to be a very different show the last show, Down the Rabbit Hole. “It’s a totally different show. The presentation, the songs, the whole approach, everything!”
Entertainment Weekly calls the band, “some of the most sonically adventurous artists working out of Nashville,” and USA Today says that on the new record, “they preserve the tradition-meets-contemporary essence of [their] sound and apply it to values that once were essential in the country repertoire.”
The band has released six studio albums along with two live albums, one greatest hits album, and two extended plays. They have also charted sixteen singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs, of which eleven have reached number 1: “Chicken Fried,” “Toes,” “Highway 20 Ride,” “Free,” “As She’s Walking Away,” “Colder Weather,” “Knee Deep,” “Keep Me in Mind,” “Homegrown,” “Loving You Easy,” and “Beautiful Drug.” Their first Atlantic Records album, ‘The Foundation,’ is certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, while its follow-ups, ‘You Get What You Give’ and ‘Uncaged’ (Opened at No. 1 with 234,000 sales), are certified platinum. Artists with whom they have collaborated include Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffett, Kid Rock, Amos Lee, String Cheese Incident, Trombone Shorty, Joey + Rory, Jason Mraz, Dave Grohl, Chris Cornell and Avicii.
Since 2009, the Zac Brown Band has earned 55 award nominations from the Grammys, Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, and Country Music Television, winning eight of those.
Opening act Drake White is a passionate songwriter and recording artist named one of No Depression’s 7 Male Artists to Breakout in 2018. He recently put together Drake White and The Big Fire Live (2018) and the celebrated five-track EP, ‘Pieces’ (2018). This follows his debut album ‘Spark’ (2016) which earned praise both critically and across his loyal fan following. The 2016 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards Album of the Year is a 12-track labor-of-love showcasing his exemplary songwriting with a rock-infused, organic Country sound and signature foot-stomp.
The sultry “Makin’ Me Look Good Again,” hit the top spot on SiriusXM’s The Highway with its deeply personal lyrics about his wife, and contagious groove. It also earned Drake the honor of International Song of the Year at the British CMA Awards. Fans from all genres voted Drake CBS.com’s GRAMMY “Artist of Tomorrow,” and he continues to stun crowds with his incredible live show and soulful voice.
Drake — along with his band The Big Fire — has toured with artists including Willie Nelson, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Kip Moore and more. It’s no wonder the Alabama native was named one of Entertainment Weekly’s New Artists Who Will Rule 2017, Rolling Stone’s 10 Country Artists You Need To Know and Billboard’s Hot New Country Artists to Watch.
