An impassioned Brown continued (full video below): “The longer that America doesn’t take this seriously and doesn’t stay in and try to contain this, the longer everyone is going to be out of jobs and be pushed into this recession we’re about to enter into…You need to wake up, stay indoors and try to socially distance…America can heal from this and celebrate with music and song, but the sooner we take action on this and don’t wait on our government to tell us that this was a serious issue…we’re late to the game. I’m pretty ashamed at the way our leadership has handled this, I’m pretty ashamed of a lot of things. We can’t rely on our government to tell our people what to do…we have to look out for the future of our all jobs and the economy and each other. If we’re gonna heal from this, everyone’s gotta take this seriously.”
The Zac Brown Band is scheduled to return to the road in late May for a tour dubbed, "Roar with the Lions." The band has an Aug. 7 date at Truist Park.
