Zac Brown band rocks! Too bad we don't get to go to the home run derby though. Are they going to televise the Zac Brown Band performance?

MLB Network will show the performance before the derby starts at 7:00. If you do not get MLB network, you might find a feed of theirs online.

yikes, hopefully they find a better band to perform on Sunday when we are going, the Zac Brown band is ok if you like country, there are worse country bands out there to be sure, but we're going to enjoy the all star game no matter what!
