Country stars Zac Brown Band are back on the road for their (seemingly) annual tour stop at Blossom Music Center on Friday, July 9!
Brown tells Entertainment Weekly that the band is taking a new approach for this summer’s trek:
“We have a whole new album, a new set, new video, a new approach,” Brown says. “We’re not using the horns or the choir right now. We’re gonna be playing all of this new stuff, some new covers. It’s going to be something really special when people come back. And that’s our job. We owe that to these people.”
Brown & Co. are on tour in support of the new record, ‘Welcome Home.’ The record hearkens back to the classic sound of the band’s beginnings. “We decided to write the most personal record we’d ever written, about the things that matter the most to us, the struggles and the celebrations of life and our relationships with our families. That’s where this began,” Zac Brown tells USA Today.
Entertainment Weekly calls the band, “some of the most sonically adventurous artists working out of Nashville,” and USA Today says that on the new record, “they preserve the tradition-meets-contemporary essence of [their] sound and apply it to values that once were essential in the country repertoire.”
The band has released six studio albums along with two live albums, one greatest hits album, and two extended plays. They have also charted sixteen singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs, of which eleven have reached number 1: “Chicken Fried,” “Toes,” “Highway 20 Ride,” “Free,” “As She’s Walking Away,” “Colder Weather,” “Knee Deep,” “Keep Me in Mind,” “Homegrown,” “Loving You Easy,” and “Beautiful Drug.” Their first Atlantic Records album, ‘The Foundation,’ is certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, while its follow-ups, ‘You Get What You Give’ and ‘Uncaged’ (Opened at No. 1 with 234,000 sales), are certified platinum. Artists with whom they have collaborated include Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffett, Kid Rock, Amos Lee, String Cheese Incident, Trombone Shorty, Joey + Rory, Jason Mraz, Dave Grohl, Chris Cornell and Avicii.
Since 2009, the Zac Brown Band has earned 55 award nominations from the Grammys, Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, and Country Music Television, winning eight of those.
