Zac Brown Band toured the country for their “Out in the Middle Tour” and just announced that they will also be hosting a benefit show for ALS in Nashville next month.

The show will take place at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday, September 22. Zac Brown Band member John Driskell Hopkins was diagnosed with ALS in December 2021 and announced the news in May.

“Playing in Nashville, our home away from home, is always something special,” the band wrote on their Instagram post announcing the show. “This one is meaningful because we are raising awareness and funds for one of our own via @hoponacure.”
