    Singer/songwriter John Mayer had so much fun at Zac Brown Band's Southern Ground Music & Food Festival in Nashville, that he has been added to the lineup for Charleston's SGMFF descending on Blackbaud Stadium on October 20 + 21, where Brown's "vision of combining world class fare with live music became a stunning reality."

    Zac Brown Band will lead the bill with nightly performances, in addition to The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and Los Lonely Boys. Both events will feature Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Jerry Douglas Band, and Southern Ground Artists including Sonia Leigh, Nic Cowan and Blackberry Smoke, among others.

    Curated by the band – from the appetizers to the openers, and the entrees to the headliners – festival-goers can expect two evenings of the finest musical acts, delicious offerings from the culinary world's best chefs – under the helm of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin, and an all around "incredible level of production" (Charleston City Paper) guaranteed to be a sensory experience like no other music festival.
