Watch Zac Brown Band Cover Temple of the Dog and Pearl Jam

Country-rock superstar Zac Brown has already shown his affinity for ’90s alt-rock by enlisting Dave Grohl and Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell to make appearances on his recent full-length, but he made that connection more explicit over the past week with a pair of covers of classics from the era. At a pair of Boston shows, he and his band broke out a reedy rendition of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike” and a straight-laced take on Pearl Jam’s “Porch.” You can watch both videos here via Alternative Nation.
