Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning Zac Brown Band’s cinematic, jam-heavy version of “Baba O’Riley” is available on all streaming platforms today HERE. Complete with a horn section and epic fiddle solos, the song was recorded live in 2016 at Boston’s Fenway Park, which holds a special place in both the band’s heart and career. As Fenway Music Hall of Fame members, Zac Brown Band made history in August, selling out the iconic stadium for the 14th time and marking the Park’s 100th concert. “Baba O’Riley” is the newest single from Zac Brown Band's first ever live-covers album, From the Road, Vol. 1: Covers, out November 10––pre-order or pre-save the album on CD or vinyl HERE.

Releasing via Brown’s own label Home Grown Music, From the Road, Vol. 1: Covers includes ZBB’s rendition of Queen’s British-rock anthem “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Listen HERE) as well as the recently released cover of “The Way You Look Tonight” (Listen HERE) made popular by Frank Sinatra.

With tracks spanning over 11 years, the album showcases a selection of legendary performances in iconic venues from the genre-blending songsmiths, joined by acts John Mayer, Steven Tyler, Darrell Scott, Mark O’Connor Band and Marcus King. Ranging from quintessential rock with “Sweet Emotion” and “Baba O’Riley,” to the Beatles’ pop cult classic “Eleanor Rigby,” to Jimmy Buffett’s tropical escape “Margaritaville,” listeners can feel the spirited energy of ZBB’s performance through this special collection of raw, live recordings.
