Although summer may be around the corner, “Colder Weather” is coming to Columbus in the form of a country song.

Grammy award-winning Zac Brown Band will be performing at Nationwide Arena today at 7 p.m.

Known for songs such as “Colder Weather,” “Chicken Fried” and “Toes,” the band is currently on tour promoting its fourth album, 2010’s “You Get What You Give.”

Erin Deatherage, a first-year in mathematics, will be attending the show. She said she is excited because she loves country music and it will be her first concert.

Deatherage said she enjoys Zac Brown Band’s music because it’s relatable.

“It relates to where I grew up and the stuff that I know,” Deatherage said. “I‘ve heard a lot of good things about them and that they are going to be really good performers.”

The country band from Georgia is currently nominated for three CMT Music Awards. The show is set to air on June 8.

Sara Santiago, a second-year in psychology, is a big fan of the band because it is different from most country bands.

“I’m a fan of country but they’re kind of folk and country,” Santiago said.

Dave Redelberger, promotions manager for Nationwide Arena, said the show is not sold out but tickets are selling fast and said plenty of good seats are still available.

Attempts to reach Zac Brown Band for comment were unsuccessful.

Tickets to the show can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com and ticket prices range from $25 to $59.50.
