Zac Brown Band has unveiled lineups for their two Southern Ground Music & Food Festivals descending on Nashville's Lawn at Riverfront Park this September 21-22 and returning to Charleston, SC's Blackbaud Stadium October 20-21, where Brown's "vision of combining world class fare with live music became a stunning reality."

In Nashville, Zac Brown Band & Friends will perform nightly super sets w/ special guests including Gregg Allman, among others. Other artists at the Nashville festival include Amos Lee, David Gray, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In Charleston, Zac Brown Band will lead the bill with nightly performances, in addition to The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, and Los Lonely Boys.
