Zac Brown Band Racing Into a Busy 2010
The members of the Zac Brown Band are no strangers to hard work, and to that end, they're set to perform multiple times in one day at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 6, during the week of festivities leading up to the Daytona 500, NASCAR's kick-off to the racing season.
The guys, who are nominated for three Grammys including Best New Artist, will perform three songs prior to the NASCAR Sprinnt Cup Series Budweiser Shootout, as well as the national anthem before the race. Following the race, the band will perform a 60-minute concert, open to all race ticketholders.
The Georgia-based group will also be opening for the Dave Matthews Band at a handful of dates this summer, beginning with a two-night stand in East Troy, Wis. beginning July 3 and wrapping up July 23 in Washington, D.C.
In addition to those cool performances, the guys have joined the lineup of this year's Merlefest, taking place April 29-May 2 in Wilkesboro, N.C., along with blues musician Taj Mahal, Elvis Costello and Steve Martin. But wait, there's more: the band will be hosting the Sailing Southern Ground cruise to Grand Cayman over Labor Day Weekend, setting sail on Sept. 2 and returning Sept. 6.

The guys are also hard at work in the studio recording tunes for the follow-up to their hit album 'The Foundation.'
