Zac Brown Band Pulls Out Of Nashville New Year’s Eve Celebration After Testing Positive For COVID


If you’re headed to Nashville to see Zac Brown Band perform at the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration, I have bad news.

Originally scheduled to play at the Nashville’s Big Bash, the city’s nationally televised New Year’s concert and music note drop held at Bicentennial Mall, the Zac Brown Band has announced that they will no longer be appearing after Zac tested positive for COVID.

Zac made the announcement in a note posted to social media:

“We are deeply disappointed to share that Zac Brown Band will no longer be performing at Nashville’s Big Bash tomorrow night on CBS.

Despite taking precautions, I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. While we were very excited to join the incredible line up of artists and millions of amazing fans tuning in to watch, our #1 priority is the safety and well-being of our fans, band, crew, and venue staff.

We’re looking forward to great things ahead and seeing you all on tour next year.”

And Zac’s not the only performer who’s dropped out of the show: Organizers also announced that Sam Hunt and Elle King will no longer be performing either.

In their place, Lady A will now be taking the main stage after having originally been scheduled to play on a satellite stage at Assembly Food Hall on Broadway.

As of right now, Dierks Bentley is still slated to headline the main show, with many other performers including Brooks & Dunn, Lainey Wilson, Carly Pearce, Jason Aldean and Jon Pardi taking the stage at various venues across downtown Nashville.

Here’s to hoping for a quick recovery for Zac, and that everybody else stays safe and healthy.
