Zac Brown Band performed at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017. The Amphitheater is an outdoor venue which is host to several country concerts throughout the year.
Academy freshman Abigail Weaver (’21) said, “I really like that they sang a lot of the hits throughout the concert. I think the outdoor concerts make it feel more open and gives it a southern vibe.”
Their 2017 tour is to advertise his newest album, “Welcome Home”, which dropped May 12, 2017. The album contains ten songs with the most listened to song being “My Old Man” which was written about his father.

Jaed Seymour (’18) said “This was my first Zac Brown Band concert. My favorite song from the concert was “Loving You Easy” and I enjoyed singing and and dancing with my friends during the concert.”
