Zac Brown Band Returning to MerleFest

Zac Brown Band will return to MerleFest in Wilkesboro, N.C., on April 28, the first night of the four-day roots music festival. In addition, that night’s lineup will include festival founder Doc Watson, as well as Randy Travis, Del McCoury Band, Scythian, Town Mountain and Corb Lund. Zac Brown Band made their first appearance at MerleFest in 2010, although Brown told the audience he had been attending as a fan for many years and called it “the greatest festival in the world.” More than 90 artists are scheduled to perform at the festival this year.
