The table is set for this year's Southern Ground Music and Food Festival. The Zac Brown Band have announced a partial lineup and dates for the three day festival in Charleston, S.C. The band has hand picked the artists and a menu from some of the world's top chefs.

"This is real wine and real food," Brown says. "It's not just what's cheap. It's not a $12 bag of nachos with some Cheez Whiz on them." Eric Church, Sonia Leigh, Blackberry Smoke, and Clay Cook are amongst the country artists on the bill. Tickets for the Oct. 21-23 festival start at $57 and go on sale Sept. 10 through or

"This is a big statement for us," Brown said. "This is a sign of the future, of how we're going to be approaching our fans and our shows and our Southern Ground festivals." Other artists on the bill include rock bands Train and My Morning Jacket, bluegrass legend Del McCoury and his Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and performances by other Southern Ground artists like The Wood Brothers and Levi Lowrey.
