Zac Brown’s group gave the audience a night to remember by bringing out special guest Sambora during the set to perform Bon Jovi’s huge hit “Wanted Dead Or Alive.”

The guitarist said after the show, “What a blast playing with my brother Zac Brown. Nashville has always welcomed me with open arms, and it was incredible to jump on stage and feel the energy of that amazing crowd.”
