After an eventful year on the charts and on the road, Grammy® Award-winning Zac Brown Band goes back on the road this fall, playing Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, October 27.
Zac has proven that "overnight success" can be years in the making. New fans drawn by the irresistible hit singles, the awe-inspiring musicianship and dynamic live shows might have thought the Zac Brown Band emerged from nowhere. In fact, the band has paid its dues for years and put in its time for just this moment, it may have happened quickly, but it's definitely built to last.
Zac Brown Band's released their third major label studio album, Uncaged, on July 10. Their second major label studio album You Get What You Give (Atlantic/Southern Ground Artists, Inc.) was released on September 21, 2010 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features guest appearances by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett and as Zac explained to Associated Press, "It's a defining record...Every step of it has been done the right way and I expect people are really going to love this record and see the depth of our musicianship; we're always growing. Not that we've arrived at any grand finale or anything, but the progress from this last record to this one; it's tremendous and I'm proud of it."
On the eve of the release from the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Zac Brown Band streamed their live show - dubbed "Best. Concert. Ever." (Cleveland Plain Dealer) - to fans everywhere via ZacBrownBand.com powered by Ustream. Touting nearly a half-million live views, the concert was among the most viewed on Ustream. The band also recently earned four Grammy® nominations including "Best Country Album" for “You Get What You Give” and five CMA Award nominations including "Entertainer of the Year." Previous honors and accolades include their 2010 Grammy® win for "Best New Artist," 2010 CMA win for "Best New Artist," 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards win for "Top New Vocal Group" and the 2009 "Breakthrough Video of the Year" from CMT and USA Weekend for "Chicken Fried."
No question, the last few years have been dizzying for the hardworking act. The band's first major label release, “The Foundation” was one of Billboard's Top 20 albums of 2009 and was the first major label debut album in 18 years to yield five No. 1s including "Chicken Fried" and "Free." Released on November 18, 2008 on Atlantic Records, “The Foundation” debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #3 on the Top Country Albums chart. It's now certified double platinum by the RIAA, which Brown says, "solidifies an achievement that has been more than a decade in the making." "There's no way to predict how fast everything is going to come together," adds the down-to-earth Georgian. "Or that it took 13 years to get to the beginning of it."
