Zac Brown Band kicked off their tour in support of their third number one album Jekyll & Hyde with a show at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The 26-song set saw the band welcome out a series of special guests including Bela Fleck, Kid Rock, Jewel, Darrell Scott and Drake White.
Scott got the night started as the first guest on the new tune “Remedy,” which appears on the band’s latest effort. White then followed, adding his vocals to “As She’s Walking Away,” a track that featured Alan Jackson on the studio recording. Singer Jewel came out for a pair of songs after that, singing on the Jason Isbell cover “Dress Blues” and another track from Jekyll & Hyde, “Mango Tree.”
Over the years, Zac Brown Band has developed a versatile cover selection and this night was no different as they welcomed out Kid Rock for a cover of “Love the One You’re With” before bringing out Scott for The Beatles’ “Let it Be.”
After the band played the rest of the set by themselves, Bela Fleck would join them for the entirety of the encore including “Junkyard” and “Tomorrow Never Comes,” which closed the show. Fleck has been a previous guest at the band’s Southern Ground Festival.
