The Zac Brown Band brings their homegrown music festival back for its fifth year in a new springtime slot.

The Broadcast is back on tour this spring in promotion of their upcoming album From the Horizon. Their second full length LP was produced by the renowned Jim Scott – a Grammy winning producer who has worked with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and more. Charleston GRIT was given access to the album ahead of release and it is phenomenal. It is grander in scope than their Dodge the Arrow debut – it sounds fuller, bigger. There’s no doubt that The Broadcast has matured and expanded, but they have not lost their signature soul swagger. It’s clear that Asheville has worn off on the band – you can hear hints of Appalachia sneaking into their sound and in some songs that tendency altogether takes the reins. The result is a delicious amalgam of Folk, Americana, and Soul.

Natural funny man Owen Compher spilled the beans last year on what it was like to drive for Uber as "Anonymous." Now, he's shedding the cloak of anonymity and revealing his own identity, as well as that of his alter-ego. Born out of equal parts shock, frustration, and disbelief behind the wheel, Owen created the personality Holy City Traffic Spinner as a comedic response to the roadways in Charleston. Buckle up, readers. He has a lot to say.

Lion King's got nothing on this Uber driver!

“I don’t believe in an interventionist God / But I know, darling, that you do / But if I did I would kneel down and ask him / Not to intervene when it came to you.”
