Friday night in the big city and the Zac Brown band did NOT disappoint. Live from the fabulous Paycom Center, as the Twister roamed the crowd to upgrade many fans to some of the best seats in the house! It was an incredible night that started with special guest Robert Randolph Band as well as The Horn Section, who were just incredible!
Sadly though as the evening progressed, during a break to set the stage for the second part of the Zac Brown Band's performance, an unexpected announcement came across the video screens from the band themselves... Zac Brown Band’s John Driskell Hopkins Reveals his ALS Diagnosis. Side by side with his bandmates, to deliver the devastating news, he said he had been noticing small changes over time, which led him to seek medical intervention. However, the news is not all bad, as doctors feel since his ALS has come on slowly, there is a good chance his time with the band will be for many years to come!
John Driskell Hopkins has since launched the Hop on a Cure foundation. Those who wish to donate can text “Hop” to 345-345 to help fund ALS research.
Zack Brown says, “The technology and research around ALS treatments has been advancing, but we still don’t have a cure. Thanks so much for your prayers and helping us cure ALS.”
Zac Brown Band is currently in the midst of its Out in the Middle Tour. Its current single, also called “Out in the Middle,” is at No. 35 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart. “Same Boat,” the band’s last single, went to No. 1.
