ZBB launches The Owl Tour

Friday, February 1, 2019 – Zac Brown Band will launch The Owl Tour this summer, including a stadium show at Boston's Fenway Park.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real will open select stops.

The band also is slated to release a new studio album featuring the lead single, "Someone I Used To Know." Both "The Owl Tour" and forthcoming album draw inspiration from the mythology and mystery surrounding the Great Horned Owl that can see perfectly in the night, serving as a guide when we need sight in even the darkest of moments.

"The Owl Tour" will mark Zac Brown Band's third consecutive touring run within the span of one year. The summer 2019 shows will follow the band's forthcoming spring 2019 "Down The Rabbit Hole Live Tour," an extension of the summer 2018 "Down the Rabbit Hole Live Tour" dates, which broke multiple records including the most consecutive sold out shows at Fenway.

"With 'The Owl Tour,' our fans can expect some new and unexpected sounds woven into the signature Zac Brown Band live music experience," said Brown. "The owl holds special meaning for us, and we look forward to sharing this with everyone."

CD reviews for Zac Brown Band

Welcome Home CD review - Welcome Home
With "Welcome Home," the Zac Brown Band continues to do what it does best, which is making quality roots music. In fact, one of the album's songs is even titled "Roots." Brown may not be the most religious guy, but his latest songs focus on many truly spiritual cornerstones of life: family and friends. Both "Family Table" and "My Old Man" find Brown reflecting on his family life, with the latter also looking at 'the here and now' of being a father himself. »»»
Jekyll + Hyde CD review - Jekyll + Hyde
Fans looking for the Zac Brown Band of 2005 won't find it in "Jekyll + Hyde" - there's nothing but an aftertaste of the Georgia group's chicken-fried origins. That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop »»»
Uncaged CD review - Uncaged
Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" album opens with Jump Right In, which finds singer/bandleader Brown admonishing, "Let the music pull you in," which might just be Brown's motto. He's all about forgetting the cares of the day and giving in wholeheartedly to the magnetic attraction of good music. Although Brown writes, sings and plays well throughout, there are nevertheless few truly standout tracks or unexpected surprises on "Uncaged." With that said, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter – Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs. Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
