Brian At Bonnaroo, Part 2

Also, I forgot to mention that the Zac Brown band had a setlist that could have been handpicked by Brian. They played all his favorites of theirs -- "Toes," "Chicken Fried," and "Lonesome, I Know You Too Well." They also did "Devil Went Down to Georgia," which they play phenomenally. Every bit as good as, if not better, than The Charlie Daniels Band. In fact, the Zac Brown Band's version of that song was a YouTube favorite of Brian's.

They went beyond that, though -- they worked "Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison into the middle of their song "Free." That was a favorite of Brian's. They also did "Find the Cost of Freedom," a cover of a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young song that Hart says was a favorite of Brian's (they saw CSNY live at Red Rocks in Colorado together a few years ago). Finally, they sang "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," which is a song by The Band and which is featured in The Band's last concert, which was recorded as an album and a movie called The Last Waltz. Brian was borderline obsessed with that DVD and album. It was amazing that we saw that song performed live.
