Zac Brown Band Gear Up to Super Serve Concert Goers in 2011

Two-time GRAMMY-Award winners Zac Brown Band are back on the road to super serve fans with their southern-flavored rock and decadent five-sense enticing concert experience with stops at amphitheaters and stadiums across the U.S.  Select stadium dates will feature the group performing alongside Kenny Chesney, while others will feature the band with support from various artists signed to Brown's own label Southern Ground Artists, Inc.

Following up their 2010 GRAMMY win for Best New Artist and multiple "Entertainer of the Year" nods in 2010 (ACM & CMA), Zac Brown Band has sold out shows across the country and scored six consecutive #1 singles on the radio.  Their latest album 'You Get What You Give' (Atlantic/Southern Ground) debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and features guest appearances by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.

New on the scene is "Cookie," the band's tractor-trailer sized, custom-built, mobile commercial kitchen that recently debuted under the helm of Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin and will bring a host of southern delicacies to the 2011 tour.

At headlining shows, Zac Brown and Chef Rusty will host their pre-show eat-and-greets, where fans get the full Zac Brown Band experience an opportunity to hang out with the band and sample Southern Ground grub. This year, the cuisine component of the tour will expand to include concession sales and expanded tailgating events.

Zac Brown Band will also appear as special guests for Kings of Leon (along with White Lies and Paul Weller) at Londons Hyde Park on June 22nd, 23rd and at Edinburghs Murrayfield Stadium on June 26th.
