Zac Brown Band First To Live Stream Concert on Twitter

In this day and age it’s difficult to imagine what can come next in terms of technological advances, but the news of the past few days is incredibly exciting for music fans, particularly as a country music fan in the UK.

As part of a new venture to livestream events, Twitter has teamed up with LiveNation in order to stream concerts on the site. Among the artists revealed, and first to be a part of this phenomenon are Zac Brown Band, who go live from Alpharetta, Georgia on the second night of their tour. This live concert airs on May 13th, one day after the release of the hotly anticipated Welcome Home. 

After seeing their stellar performance at C2C this year, I for one cannot wait for the live concert. If successful, it’s great news for UK country fans as not many of the larger artists bring their tours over here, meaning the opportunity to watch them live on Twitter is certainly better than nothing. It’s currently unclear how exactly the live streaming concert will come about, and in the UK it will be in the middle of the night, but be sure to check Twitter on May 13th!

Family Table Review

 

Zac Brown Band have released another single from their upcoming album Welcome Home, along with a lyric video. I love “My Old Man” and “Real Thing” but I think “Family Table” might be my favourite of the new album so far. The song is an ode to a piece of furniture, as well as a heartfelt metaphor for the comfort of family. The lyrics echo this sentiment as ZBB sing, “it’s the cornerstone that held us all up”.

Not only do the lyrics in the song offer a warm and familiar feeling of community, the melody is very conventional of Zac Brown Band, without disappointing in the slightest. The band show off their ever impressive harmonies all over the shop – vocally and by way of guitars and violins. The song fits their ‘Welcome Home’ theme perfectly, and with the rest of the album which has a very nostalgic feel and reminds that truly, “no other place can ease your mind like the family table”.

Zac Brown Band’s fifth studio album Welcome Home is due to be released 12th May.
