The Dick's Sporting Goods Open believes it has found just the act to continue its string of top caliber musical performances on Friday night.

The Zac Brown Band will play just off the 18th green following the end of the first round of the annual Champions Tour event on August 15th. The country and folk band from Atlanta has released five studio albums and has had ten number one singles on the Billboard country chart. Zac Brown follows a string of well known performers that have at played the Dick's Sporting Goods Open in recent years including Maroon 5, Train, and last year Tim McGraw. Marketing and Promotions Manager Dave Pessagno says word is spreading among musicians about what a special place the Dick's Open is to play.

Dave Pessagno says, "They've really enjoyed this local community feel. Fans are obviously very close to the stage when they're up there. It's big crowds, but they really enjoy coming to our community."

Tickets are $50 and include admission to the day's round of professional golf. They go on sale at 10:00 am on March 22nd and are expected to sell out fast. You can purchase tickets at or at either local Dick's Sporting Goods Open stores. About 24,000 are available, although the majority of them are sold through sponsorship packages.
