I am anxiously awaiting the July 24 Fun Fest show in Kingsport, Tenn., where I will get to see Zac Brown Band for the very first time. This is going to be an awesome show. And now, thanks to the press release below, I have something else to look forward to – and that is the Sept. 21 release of Zac Brown Band’s new album. Here’s the release
Atlantic Records/Southern Ground Artists, Inc. will release ‘You Get What You Give,’ the much-anticipated studio album from Best New Artist GRAMMY winners Zac Brown Band, on September 21.
The album features a genre-defying collection of songs that the band has been testing on the road over the past year. Stand out tracks include: the somber piano-driven early fan favorite "Colder Weather," the reggae-leaning, jam-inducing "Who Knows," and a harmony-laced lesson on the merits of chasing after love "As She’s Walking Away."
Praised for the ability to blend "down-home country with bits of reggae, bluegrass and rock to create a high-quality musical stew" (USA Today), front man Zac Brown notes that the new album "is representative of where we are right now. It combines elements of our southern rock and country roots, but also stays true to our jam-band style musicianship from the live show."
Tonight and July 17 – Citi Field – New York, NY
July 23 – Nationals Park – Washington, DC
‘You Get What You Give’ is the follow up to the band’s double platinum-certified, major label debut ‘The Foundation’ (Atlantic), which is one of Billboard’s Top 20 albums of 2009 and features the band’s first four #1 singles.
Zac Brown Band is: singer/guitarist Zac Brown, violinist/singer Jimmy De Martini, bassist/singer John Hopkins, guitarist/organist Coy Bowles, multi-instrumentalist/singer Clay Cook and drummer Chris Fryar.
There’s your press release – now let’s all circle that date on our calendar so we can run out and grab a co py of the new album on Sept. 21 – I’ll race you to the head of the line!
