The Zac Brown Band Got “Whatever It Is”

The Zac Brown Band will be performing tonight at the Bryce Jordan Center at 8 p.m. with openers Sonia Leigh and Nic Cowan.

The band, which became widely popular with their 2008 album The Foundation fuses country music with songs that pay homage to the relaxing nature of Jimmy Buffett.

Their hits include “Chicken Fried,” “Toes,” “Whatever It Is,” “Free,” and the more recent ballad “Colder Weather.”

I saw ZBB when they opened for the Dave Matthews Band in the summer of 2010 and they were very good live. However, I am not a huge country music fan (or Dave Matthews fan for that matter, so what the hell was I doing at that concert?) and I was extremely bored toward the end of ZBB’s set. They woke me up though with the highlight of the entire concert; a cover of “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine. I would expect a few surprises like that from Zac and friends tonight at the BJC.

Tickets are still available at the Bryce Jordan Center box office, as well as online through Ticketmaster, for the show. Doors open at 7 p.m.
