Atlanta, GA, July 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On Friday, July 3, the multi-platinum GRAMMY award-winning Zac Brown Band presented a free live stream performance in partnership with LiveXLive, raising over $1.4 million for Zac Brown’s nonprofit passion project Camp Southern Ground and its veteran support programs. Streamed from Camp Southern Ground, “4th With The Family” featured a special acoustic performance of Zac Brown Band fan favorites like “Chicken Fried,” “Free,” and “Homegrown” as well as their latest single “The Man Who Loves You The Most.” The live stream also included guest appearances by NBC News co-anchor and broadcast journalist Hoda Kotb, Medal of Honor recipient Salvatore Giunta, and former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer.
“4th With the Family” was made possible by Presenting Sponsor EarthLink; Generous Sponsors Lovesac and Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund; Supporting Sponsors The Arthur M. Blank Foundation, Goldman Sachs, Republic National Distributing Company, Z. Alexander Brown, and Coca-Cola; and individual patrons Tor Peterson, Angela and Glenn Goad, Laurice and Doug Haynes, Menear Foundation, Sonia and Paul Jones, and Wendy Barton. This event was presented in partnership with LiveXLive which powered wide distribution across its own site, apps and social channels as well as Zac Brown Band’s YouTube and Facebook, generating nearly 600,000 live stream views.
“I’m always in awe of the sacrifices and selflessness of our military, it’s really the special kind of people who choose to serve our country,” said Zac Brown, Camp Southern Ground founder. “The live stream was an amazing celebration for all the people who have fought, died and lived their life so that we can be safe. We are honored to do our part to support them in any way we can.”
