Most recently, Zac Brown Band dazzled audiences with the release of their seventh studio album, The Comeback (Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music), deeply rooted in their iconic, original Southern rock sound. The album debuted as the Top New Country Album release and earned the No. 1 spot on the Current Country Album Sales chart. The album’s unifying lead single, “Same Boat,” also swiftly rose to the No. 1 spot at country radio. Recorded at the renowned Southern Ground Nashville studio, the song’s clap-along arrangements feature contributions from the entire band, with melodic vocal harmonies, brisk percussion, and the lively violin. The New York Times raved that fans “are likely to find ‘The Comeback’ a fitting title for Zac Brown Band’s seventh studio album. Returning to the raucous, full-bodied sound . . . [it] leans hard into many of its proven strengths, from the playful, ‘Margaritaville’-esque dispatches ‘Paradise Lost On Me’ and ‘Same Boat’ to the lush harmonies and intricate guitar work showcased on ‘Out In The Middle.’ Don’t be afraid to call it by its name.” Rolling Stone said, “Zac Brown Band makes an upbeat plea for peace and coexistence in the new song ‘Same Boat,’” adding it “welds that message to an uplifting melody and pristine layered harmonies.” The album features 15 songs in total, celebrating the country’s collective resilience as a community.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Zac Brown Band this August as part of the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open,” said Executive Director John Karedes. “ZBB has been the one band our fans have continuously asked us to bring back since their amazing sold-out show in 2014.” added Karedes.
