Zac Brown Band has been one of country music’s biggest acts for decades now. And in this moment posted to the singer’s Instagram page, Brown brings a fan onstage to sing the band’s 2010 single “Colder Weather” from their second album “You Get What You Give.”
The young girl Brown brings onstage to sing is named Brianna Shirley. Brown encourages Shirley during her performance, smiling and nodding to her and occasionally patting her on the back. Eventually, the crowd joins in and sings along, and you can see Zac Brown softly sing along to his own song.
“This one is for my sweet friend Brianna… thank you for joining me on stage last night for Colder Weather,” the 44-year-old musician wrote in his caption. “Your tremendous courage and voice are an inspiration to us all.”
