Zac Brown Band
may have nine hit singles, two platinum-selling records and
countless dedicated fans, but to hear its members talk they’re just
getting warmed up. That’s right—after numerous nights in front
of packed arenas and amphitheaters, things are just beginning
to come together for this accomplished band of brothers, led by
one of the most charismatic individuals ever to don a beanie and
dominate radio.
| JULY 31 - AUGUST 3, 2014 |
Brown has built a virtual southern
Brill Building of songwriting talent, while
doing his best to reincarnate the ‘70s
heyday of Capricorn Records through his
Southern Ground Artists label, home to
The Wood Brothers, Levy Lowrey, Nic
Cowan, Sonia Leigh, Blackberry Smoke
and The Wheeler Boys. But that’s
only part of the story. His Southern
Ground banner flies over everything
from metalworking to leather goods.
In addition to housing offices and
rehearsal space, the former industrial
warehouse in Atlanta that serves as the
company’s headquarters also features
a full kitchen for “Chef Rusty” Hamlin
and his crew, the better to power those
much-talked-about “eat and greets”
that Brown, a former restaurant owner,
hosts for lucky fans.

The most farsighted plans reach
beyond the warehouse, to a plot of
land south of Atlanta where plans
proceed for a nonprofit camp aimed to
help kids overcoming behavioral and
learning disabilities and disadvantaged
backgrounds. Simultaneously, Southern
Ground has secured a studio in Nashville
for future recording needs. At this point
it’s safe to say that the Zac Brown
Band is more than an act—it’s quickly
becoming a way of life.
So given all of the creative energy
around it, new material has never
been a problem for Zac Brown Band.
The band was originally built on the
songwriting partnership of Zac Brown
and Wyatt Durette. Since then the brain
trust has expanded to encompass the
artists on the label as well as members
of the band. No matter how heavily the
band is touring, something is always
Asked whether the band still feels
at home on country radio, Hopkins
notes that country radio has grown
and evolved just as the band has. “It’s
southern radio to me, and I don’t think
we’re doing anything southern people
wouldn’t like.”
“The two things I think that make
this band different from anybody else,
and the reason why we’re here today,
is that everybody has an insane work
ethic,” Bowles observes. “Nobody
complains. Everybody plays their asses
off, everybody gets on the plane or bus
even if they’re not feeling well, and tries
to do everything to the best of their
ability, always. And Zac has this ability to
make you believe what he’s singing no
matter what. So if we do an R&B tune
or a reggae tune, he’s totally believable.”
“One cool thing about Zac is that
he loves to include everybody,” De
Martini adds. “He doesn’t really have
to have the Zac Brown Band. I think he
would be successful just as Zac Brown.
But the band adds a lot and takes it to
another level. It’s one big family with
