Zac Brown Band has canceled their Southern Ground Music Festival for 2017, but they do plan to continue the fun again in 2018.

The South Carolina music festival announced the news on their official website. “We regret to announce that the 2017 Southern Ground Music & Food Festival will be rescheduled for next year,” the statement reads. The festival was set for this May.

There is a good for the cancelation, though. “Zac Brown Band will take this time to focus on the new album, Welcome Home, and SGMFF will return in 2018,” the announcement continues. “Appreciate all the love and support.”

Last year’s sold out Southern Ground Music Festival featured Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett, Cam,  Old Dominion, Hunter Hayes and more.

Zac Brown Band couldn’t create a music festival and not take the stage, though. To round out the music, they closed out each night with energtic, cover-filled sets. Some of the most memorable were their renditions of Hank Williams’ “Hey Good Lookin’” and the classic Queen song, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
