It’s been almost six years since Zac Brown Band were last in Australia, and they did not let down with their return during night one at CMC Rocks yesterday. 

Performing the numbers you know and love, the group also performed some covers, including Take It To The Limit by The Eagles, their newly-released take on the Rolling Stones classic, Paint It Black (which features on the album Stoned Cold Country, which you can stream here), and put their own spin on Metallica’s Enter Sandman.

Far from the first time they’ve performed the Metallica hit, having it played in Brisbane was a special experience for fans of all ages.
