A couple of AHN girls threw on their country boots and attended the Zac Brown Band concert at the MidFlorida Credit Union on Sunday, September 18. The country band has been on tour performing their Black Out the Sun 2016 tour. During the concert, the band sang some of their major hits and songs from their latest 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde.
Allie Weachter ‘17 attended the concert and stated,“I went to the Zac Brown concert because I love country music and spending time with friends. They are a really good live band, and my favorite song from them has to be “Castaway”!”
