Zac Brown Band Uncaged on LP
Three-time Grammy winners and multi-platinum artists Zac Brown Band have become one of music's most heralded acts. Their latest album Jekyll + Hyde marked the band’s third consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. Together with their three platinum-selling albums, The Foundation (2008), You Get What You Give (2010) and Uncaged (2012) plus their 2013 project The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1, the band has sold over seven million albums to date. They've also earned a historic series of thirteen #1 hit radio singles and became only the second artist to top both the country and active rock formats.
Zac Brown Band's Uncaged is the culmination of the "powerful chemistry that's developed by living, traveling and working as a band," says front man Zac Brown. "We're always trying to push the barrier of our musicianship and I'm proud to say that there is a little bit of something for everyone," he reveals about the Georgia seven-piece's third major label release. The album was recorded at various studios across the South including Atlanta, Asheville, Nashville and Key West.
From the tight, rocking title track to the slow-burning "Goodbye in Her Eyes" that guitarist Coy Bowles calls "the biggest sounding song we've ever recorded," the eleven-song set is driven by characteristic ZBB harmonies, including guest vocals by Amos Lee on the poignant "Day That I Die." New Orleans' Trombone Shorty contributes trumpet and trombone on "Overnight" and, true to the tightness of the Southern Ground family, a host of co-writers share the penning duties, from Jason Mraz and longtime collaborator Wyatt Durrette to Southern Ground Artists Sonia Leigh, Nic Cowan, and Levi Lowrey.
Said violinist Jimmy De Martini of the diverse mix of songs, "it remains true to the Zac Brown Band sound, which has become a style in itself." "This is first record that we've made from start to finish in one thought," adds multi-instrumentalist Clay Cook. "The previous albums have been a collection of songs...this is an album."
