On the eve - or, rather, afternoon - of their hometown debut stadium performance, members of the Zac Brown Band stopped by SunTrust Park to discuss the concert.

Fiddler Jimmy De Martini and guitarist Coy Bowles - who was visiting the venue for the first time - braved the humidity as crews worked in the background to erect the massive stage that will be used for Saturday’s show (as well as Sunday’s performance by Journey and Def Leppard).
