Zac Brown Band not only released their brand new album, The Owl, this weekend, they also performed some of their new music live for the first time at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday, September 21st, in addition to some fan favorites and a rockin' Rage Against the Machine cover.
The band kicked off their set with "Homegrown" from 2015's Jekyll + Hyde, followed by their new pop-influenced single "Someone I Used To Know" from The Owl. Then, after "Colder Weather" (appropriate now that it's officially about to be fall), the band performed a cover of Eagles' 1975 hit "Take It To The Limit."
Next, the guys shared more of their new album live by performing "The Woods" followed by a Zac Brown Band staple and fan favorite: 2008's "Chicken Fried." Naturally, the entire arena broke out into a gigantic sing-along.
To close out their set on the iHeartRadio Music Festival stage, frontman Zac Brown hopped on the electric guitar while fiddle player Jimmy De Martini took on vocal duty to perform a cover of Rage Against The Machine's "Bulls On Parade."
