Zac Brown Band Set Release
Zac Brown Band's signature sound is equal parts country, bluegrass, southern rock, pop and reggae. Lead by the tenacious Zac Brown, the band possesses awe-inspiring musicianship, skillful songwriting and dynamic live performances that have been embraced by audiences across the country.
"Chicken Fried," the album's first single - which sold almost 150,000 downloads in the first five weeks and currently ranks #6 on Billboard's Hot Country and #36 on Billboard Hot 100 – has already established the band as a radio favorite.
Produced by the legendary Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, George Jones), 'The Foundation' features "Whatever It Is," a ballad about the bewildering power of love, "Toes," an ode to the pleasures of beach life; and "Free," which has turned into an audience anthem during recent tour stops.
Zac Brown Band performs upwards of 250 dates a year and has played more than 3,000 shows in their career and shared the stage with bands such as Sugarland, Alan Jackson, Los Lonely Boys, The Allman Brothers, Willie Nelson, B.B. King, ZZ Top and Etta James. The band's aggressive touring has helped them develop a fanatical grassroots following by winning over believers one person at a time.
"Zac Brown Band is a self-made American success story," said Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman. "They've built up a phenomenal grassroots base with music that cuts across musical boundaries and walks of life to speak to the hearts of people everywhere. They are the perfect band for our times, with the songs, the musicianship, and the power to become a major presence. I am thrilled to welcome Zac Brown Band into the Atlantic family, and we are looking forward to joining forces to take their career to new heights."
