Zac Brown Band Set for Sailing Southern Ground
Over Labor Day weekend (September 2 - 6), the Zac Brown Band will embark on the Sailing Southern Ground cruise, traveling from Tampa, Fla. to Grand Cayman on the Carnival Inspiration. During the cruise, fans will enjoy headlining performances by the Grammy-award winning band and more than a dozen other artists including Michael Franti & Spearhead, Blackberry Smoke, Nic Cowan, Gaelic Storm, Oakhurst, Levi Lowrey, and Sonia Leigh, with more to be announced soon.
"There will be awesome food and awesome music," Zac says of the four-day cruise. "The collaborations are going to be insane. We're going to be really involved with the activities that are going on on board. I know Coy [Bowles] is going to be doing a guitar workshop. I'm going to come, as well, and get some guitar lessons along with you guys. Me and [Chef] Rusty are going to be doing some cooking demonstrations ... teach you how to grease a pig the right way. Clay [Cook]'s going to be our radio host for part of the show from the boat as everybody's hanging out. Jimmy [DeMartini]'s going to be training everybody in a [fitness class] boot camp once a day."
The cruise ship will also have an on board casino, drinks, food, and other exciting events. "It's normal for me to stay up 'til five or six o'clock in the morning playing on a little acoustic stage and doing that, and I plan on doing that every night all night," Zac adds.
Sailing Southern Ground cabins are on sale now with prices starting at $699. Fans can make their reservations by clicking here.
