The Zac Brown Band performed before a sellout crowd at Fenway Park on Sunday, providing a sensational evening of country rock. Perfect weather ensued as the band kicked off the first of two soldout nights at the iconic ballpark.

Based in Atlanta, the Grammy Awardwinning band has sold out a record breaking eleven performances at Fenway Park. The band was solid, with its lineup including Brown (lead vocals/guitar), Jimmy De Martini (fiddle, vocals), John Driskell Hopkins (bass, guitar, banjo, ukulele, vocals), Coy Bowles (guitar, keyboards), Clay Cook (guitar, keyboards, mandolin, steel guitar, vocals), Matt Mangano (bass), and Daniel de los Reyes (percussion).

The band played a 29 song set, with many of their own hits, including “Toes,” and “Knee Deep,” “Chicken Fried,” and “Homegrown.” In addition, they pulled off some excellent covers of “Hot for Teacher” (Van Halen), “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” (The Charlie Daniels Band), “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Queen), “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” (Dropkick Murphys), and “Enter Sandman” (Metallica).

Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real got the crowd going with a stellar set to open the night.
