    So I'm doing that thing where I didn't read the whole thread but I'm posting a question (that might have already come up). SORRY!

    Since we have the SoWal connection with this talented act does this mean we stand a chance to get these guys to come play at a beach bonfire? We'll keep it on the down low.

    Hop, I started playing their music up on Lake Lanier last summer and every one loves them.

    Tell him thanks for me.....Now my friends dont hate me for playing Buffett all the time.

    Not that theres anything wrong with that!!!

    What a great show. I am watching it now for the second time. They seem to have a common appreciation for real music. A legend and one in the making.

    Yeah, they really seemed to hit it off. Zac is a super down to earth guy. They are the real deal! How cool would it be to hang with Jimmy Buffett?!?!?

    Finally got to see this Crossroads episode - it was great! So glad they sang Free. Love that one from an older Zac Brown Band CD I have. My husband saw them at an Atl bar a few years ago and brought home 2 signed CDs which we played to death... before Chicken Fried.

    On the same CD I think, there is an awesome cover of Romeo and Juliet - a Mark Knopfler song. Give it a listen if you stumble across it sometime. Better than the original in my opinion.

    Saw Zac Brown with Jimmy Buffett Last Night

    :clap: I was at the Jimmy Buffett concert in Atlanta last night and had the unexpected bonus of getting to see Zac Brown join Jimmy for 3 songs. They also played a couple of clips from the CMT special during intermission. Anyway, just wanted to let you know the concert was great and your brother helped to make the show. Jimmy actually said he was "passing the torch" to Zac - nice endorsement! BTW - love "Toes" and "Where the Boat Leaves From" - both will be in heavy rotation on my ipod when I get to Seagrove in a few weeks.

    We have tickets for the Atlanta (Alpharetta) Zac Brown Band concert on May 8th. Really looking forward to it.

    The Jimmy Buffett concert must have been amazing. I thought about snagging lawn seats for that one. One year I'm going to do it.

    I really recommend going to at least one Buffett show if for nothing but the people watching experience. We have been going ever since college (more years than I want to count:blush:) and each year is different and never ever boring. Wait until the week before and try tickets on e-bay - I'm sure you will find a steal, even on reserved seats.

    Hope to see you at Lakewood next year!

    My son and his wife saw them here in Memphis at Mud Island this past Thursday night. And wouldn't you know that it would get stormy looking and start with the lightning and some rain down there. He said it did not rain that much though, kind of blew over he said. Said the concert lasted about 3 1/2 hours. He said the place was packed.
