Behind every golf fan is a die hard music fan, and people rocked out at Evans Towne Center for a Georgia homegrown artist.

Fans were waiting at the gates hours before they opened and sang their way throughout the wait. It was some fans first time seeing the band, while others were not strangers to the Zac Brown Band experience.

Zac Brown Band Fan, Gabriella Newmiller, sings a line from Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried”, “cold beer on a Friday night, pair of jeans that fit just right, and the radio…”

People from all over the country came to Columbia County just to see their favorite band play.

Superfan, Elena Gallegos, says, “my all time favorite band is the Zac Brown Band.”

For Gallegos, this is her eighth time seeing the band play and in her hometown.

“That was the purpose of why I didn’t work this year to make sure I could be here for when Zac comes to town,” says Gallegos.

Not only is she a superfan, but she is even a part of what’s called the “Zamily.”

“Literally just a Zac Brown Family the ‘Zamily,'” says Gallegos.

The “Zamily” members connect through Facebook and band together for concert tours.

“A lot of them were just in Vegas for one of his shows and they just drove down here for the next one,” says Gallegos.

They even get family perks.

“Usually we get pre-entry into the shows by 30 minutes and we usually all meet once a year at Zac’s– he has a camp for kids and we meet there every year in October. They do like a private concert,” says Gallegos.

Elena has met every band member, except for the lead singer himself.

“I’ve met every member except Zac one-on-one,” says Gallegos.

She already knows what her first words to him would be.

“I would say thank you for making music that inspires so many people,” says Gallegos.

You bet she will be singing along with her eight favorite guys.

“Pray to be stronger and wiser know you get what you give,” Gallegos sings.

The band sang songs tonight from their new album, and it was their first public Masters performance.
