40+ Date "WELCOME HOME" Tour Kicks Off Tonight With Sold-Out Hometown Show at Alpharetta, GA's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park


(New York, NY): Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning multi-platinum artists Zac Brown Band return with new album ‘WELCOME HOME,’ out today on Southern Ground/Elektra Records. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), 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 lyric video for the album’s first single, “My Old Man,” has hit almost five million views, is featured on CMT and recently added to GAC.

Brown tells Entertainment Weekly that the band is taking a new approach for these live shows.

“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.”
