ZBB is in the "Same Boat"

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 – Zac Brown Band will release a new single, "Same Boat," on Friday.

"Same Boat" will mark the band's first song with Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music. The GRAMMY-winning band's front man Zac Brown penned the tune with Ben Simonetti and Jonathan Singleton.

"'Same Boat' is really about the human condition," said Brown. "It's about how we all go through the same things, all together. It is a chance to be able to remind people to be positive, be good to each other and show empathy. You don't know what it's like to walk around in someone else's shoes. We're all human beings. Let's spread some love around and show kindness to each other."

The song was recorded at the Southern Ground Nashville studio and features contributions from the entire band, with vocal harmonies, percussion and violin. This marks the first time that the band was able to reunite safely in the studio to record new music together since COVID-19 started.

"Same Boat" follows the release of Zac Brown Band's two digital singles released in 2020, "The Man Who Loves You The Most" and "You and Islands."

The group will be back on the road on the upcoming U.S. "The Comeback Tour." Stops include Boston's Fenway Park on Aug. 8 and Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Oct. 17, with 23 stops along the way.

"We couldn't be more excited to get back out on the road and share our new music with our fans," Brown said. "It's been a long, difficult year for everyone, and we're fired up to be reuniting with our crew, get back on tour, and celebrate a brand-new world."

CD review - The Comeback If you have even a passing familiarity of Zac Brown's personal history starting around 2018, you know the inspiration for this CD's title. First, Brown's 12-year marriage collapsed. Then, the world shook its collective head when he released a solo pop record ("Controversy") simultaneous to a ZBB release ("The Owl"). Why saturate the market with oneself, especially when the solo outing was a mess? The cover of that pop/hip-hop experimentation said it all: Brown, ...
CD review - Welcome Home With "Welcome Home," the Zac Brown Band continues to do what it does best, which is making quality roots music. In fact, one of the album's songs is even titled "Roots." Brown may not be the most religious guy, but his latest songs focus on many truly spiritual cornerstones of life: family and friends. Both "Family Table" and "My Old Man" find Brown reflecting on his family life, with the latter also looking at 'the here and now' of being a father himself. ...
CD review - Jekyll + Hyde Fans looking for the Zac Brown Band of 2005 won't find it in "Jekyll + Hyde" - there's nothing but an aftertaste of the Georgia group's chicken-fried origins. That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop ...
