Zac Brown Added to “Sinatra 100 – An All-Star Grammy Concert”


Three-time GRAMMY® winner Zac Brown, three-time GRAMMY winner Harry Connick, Jr., five-time GRAMMY winner Celine Dion, and six-time GRAMMY winner Lady Gaga, have been added to the list of performers for “Sinatra 100 — An All-Star GRAMMY Concert.” They join previously announced performers Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, and Usher. The primetime special, presented by The Recording Academy®, AEG Ehrlich Ventures, and CBS will honor the remarkable legacy of the legendary Frank Sinatra by celebrating the late icon’s 100th birthday with a stellar line-up of entertainers performing songs made famous by “the Chairman of the Board.” The live concert taping will be held Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015, at Wynn Las Vegas Encore Theatre. The special will be broadcast in HDTV and 5.1 surround sound on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, Dec. 6, from 9 – 11 p.m. ET/PT. Additional performers will be announced shortly.

Considered a voice for all generations, Sinatra’s signature style and timeless music continue to inspire today.

“Frank Sinatra was a mentor, colleague and dear friend of mine and he was the master of intimate singing,” stated Bennett.

“I’ve been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years,” said Dion. “His voice has been such an inspiration for me and it will always be.”

“My grandfather introduced me to Frank Sinatra,” said Keys. “I love hearing his songs, the phrasing, the innocence — the subtle depth that knocks you out when you concentrate on the lyrics. And those arrangements! It brings me back to the lost art of ‘the gentleman.'”

Levine offered, “Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank. That’s why I love him.”

Among Sinatra’s nine GRAMMY wins are three for Album Of The Year for Come Dance With Me (1959), September Of My Years (1965) and A Man And His Music (1966). Additional recognition from The Recording Academy includes a Lifetime Achievement Award, GRAMMY Legend Award, and 13 recordings inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame®.

Harmony is central to the foundation of Country Music so it is no surprise that harmony will be a central feature of Country Music’s Biggest Night™ when “The 49th Annual CMA Awards” airs live Wednesday, Nov. 4 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Joining the lineup of Country Music’s biggest stars are Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town,
Zac Brown Band, and Dierks Bentley in a special performance with electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling.

Reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Florida Georgia Line (Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley) has claimed the Vocal Duo trophy the past two years and returns this year to compete for it once again. Florida Georgia Line is a five-time CMA Awards nominee who earned their first nomination in 2013 for Musical Event, Single, and New Artist of the Year.

Three-time CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town (Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook) has been nominated in the category every year since 2006 and received a nomination again in 2015. Adding to their list of 21 total nominations are industry nods this year for Single of the Year for “Girl Crush,” which was produced by Jay Joyce; Album of the Year for Pain Killer, which was produced by Joyce; Musical Event of the Year with Miranda Lambert for “Smokin’ and Drinkin’”; and Music Video of the Year for “Girl Crush” which was directed by Karla Welch and Matthew Welch. Little Big Town and Eric Church are tied for the most nominations for 2015.

Zac Brown Band (Coy Bowles, Zac Brown, Clay Cook, Daniel de los Reyes, Jimmy De Martini, Chris Fryar, John Driskell Hopkins, and Matt Mangano) won New Artist of the Year in 2010 and has earned 14 CMA Awards nominations since 2009. They are nominated for Vocal Group of the Year in 2015 and have been nominated in this category each year since 2011.

Bentley, a 15-time nominee and two-time winner including the Horizon Award in 2005 (now New Artist of the Year) and Music Video of the Year in 2014 for “Drunk on a Plane,” collects his fourth Male Vocalist nomination in 2015. His performance will include a special appearance by Stirling, an electronic violinist whose YouTube channel has exceeded 7 million subscribers with over 1 billion total views and whose most recent album Shatter Me, reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. She has been named in Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 In Music: The Class of 2015.
