Zac Brown Band members talk from SunTrust Park about Saturday’s concert

Coy Bowles and Jimmy De Martini were on site the afternoon before the big gig


On the eve - or, rather, afternoon - of their hometown debut stadium performance, members of the Zac Brown Band stopped by SunTrust Park to discuss the concert.

Fiddler Jimmy De Martini and guitarist Coy Bowles - who was visiting the venue for the first time - braved the humidity as crews worked in the background to erect the massive stage that will be used for Saturday’s show (as well as Sunday’s performance by Journey and Def Leppard).

Tickets for the show are still available. For info regarding parking, opening acts and transportation, check out our handy tips. 

Bowles also talked to the AJC earlier this week about how the band chooses its cover songs, his new family and his side gig as a children’s book author. Take a listen to find out how he’ll prepare for Saturday’s concert.
