Zac Brown Band Announce ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut
The folksy, bluegrass-infused band will perform as musical guests on the March 7 show. The performance will mark their SNL debut. Thor actor Chris Hemsworth will host the show. Rolling Stone reports that the band will most likely perform their latest single, “Homegrown,” on the show. Regardless of which songs they play, fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear this soulful band perform.
This isn’t the first time that country singers have been asked to perform on SNL. In years past, other country music singers including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood performed for or hosted the long-running sketch comedy program. Country-turned-pop star Taylor Swift hosted in 2009, and she made a return appearance for SNL’s 40th Anniversary special. She even performed her massive pop hit, “Shake It Off,” with Sir Paul McCartney afterward.
Zac Brown Band have a busy roster of shows and events in the upcoming weeks. In addition to performing on Saturday Night Live, they will be touring throughout America and Australia during the next few months. Visit their website for a complete list of upcoming shows and tour dates. Tune into NBC on March 7 to watch their SNL performance.
