Yes, WE Fest can get even bigger. On Saturday night (Aug. 6) the first headliners for 2017 WE Fest were announced to fans at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minn. Luke Bryan and the Zac Brown Band will close two of the three nights of country music's biggest camping and country music festival.
The Zac Brown Band' first album dropped in 2008 but the singer was writing, touring and recording for nearly a decade before that. The roots of those early projects still pop up in today's albums. One phrase comes up so often you almost wonder if he's trying to make a point.
Zac Brown Band are as passionate about building Camp Southern Ground as they are about their music. In a recent interview at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, frontman Zac Brown opened up about the camp and how their music has allowed them the ability to fund the camp.
Zac Brown Band will have their toes in the water in early 2017. The band has announced the return of their Castaway With Southern Ground event in Riviera Maya, Mexico, for next January, where they'll perform two shows at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel.
