Zac Brown was born in Cumming, Georgia on July 31, 1978. Zac started playing the guitar when he was just 8 years old. After founding his own record company in 2003, Brown started touring with his band. Together, they have had over 9 hit singles. Their focus is on true, country storytelling in their song lyrics which has generated their fan base and quick rise to fame.
With his winning combination of country, bluegrass, reggae, and Caribbean music, he appeals to country fans and jam band hippies, and could well cross over to lovers of world music and pop. He sold over 30,000 copies of the first two self-produced albums he made for his own Southern Ground label, and “Chicken Fried,” the Zac Brown Band’s first single to get national distribution, went platinum with over a million downloads. His first nationally distributed album, The Foundation, sold 300,000 copies within weeks of its release in late 2008.
