Nashville, Tenn. — Zac Brown hasn't put together the set list for his Daytona 500 kickoff concert next month, but he's got a pretty good idea of how it will go.
"It would have to be up-tempo, rockin'," Brown said, "... tryin' to get everybody pumped up for the race."
It's a pedal to the metal kind of time for the group over the next month.
First up: the Grammy Awards, where the band is up for country album of the year on Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
Brown said band members are excited about a return to the show, where they won best new artist in 2010.
"It's the awards show. It is the one," Brown said. "The other ones, there's a lot of politics, in my opinion. This one is legitimately chosen by your peers as an artist. I think you're judged by your music at the Grammys."
Then it's on to Florida for the Feb. »
