Zac Brown Band Earns Ninth Grammy Nomination
Zac Brown Band today received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their song "My Old Man" off the band's latest album WELCOME HOME (Southern Ground/ Elektra). This is the band's ninth Grammy nomination.
"My Old Man" has been called "one of the most reflective and heart-warming songs to hit country radio in a decade," (One Country) and praised for its vulnerability, vivid lyricism, and powerful contemplation of the relationship between fathers and sons. "... never have Zac Brown Band released a single this personal" wrote Taste of Country.
'WELCOME HOME,' a return to their classic sound, was produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Cobb and In the Arena Productions. Rolling Stone praised the album's "southern storytelling, rootsy instrumentation and the sonic swell of eight bandmates who, once again, are firing on the same cylinder." The No. 1 triumph of ‘WELCOME HOME’ follows three platinum-selling albums ('Uncaged,' 'You Get What You Give,' and 'JEKYLL + HYDE'), the 5x-platinum 'The Foundation,' and their 2013 project, 'The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1.'
Billboard calls Zac Brown Band "one of the biggest success stories....over the past decade." The three-time GRAMMY-winning multi-platinum artists have had five consecutive albums reach the top 10 of the Billboard 200 and four consecutive albums debut at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. To date, the group has sold more than 25 million singles and eight million albums. They have achieved 15 #1 radio singles and are the second act to top both the country and active rock formats. They have developed a reputation with critics and fans alike for a live show marked by strong musicianship that defy genre boundaries.
Zac Brown Band played to more than a million fans in 2017 and over five million fans in the last five years. Massive, sold-out stadium shows at Denver’s Coors Field and Chicago’s Wrigley Field anchored the 50-market ‘WELCOME HOME Tour.
