Avett Brothers Charlotte Motor Speedway Concert A Big Success!

The Avett Brothers drive-in concert at Charlotte Motor Speedway Saturday night, 8/29/20, was a phenomenal success, with over 1500 cars and trucks from 38 different states filling the infield to capacity!  The well-behaved family crowd stayed socially distant and wore masks when leaving their vehicles, and enjoyed a two-hour concert from the hometown favorites.  Seth Avett drove the 3 other band members in his beautifully restored ’65 Ford Galaxie around the racetrack and up to the stage to kick the evening off, and the band played 26 songs that included new arrangements of fan-favorites, some rare tracks, and 3 songs from their new album “The Third Gleam.”
