– Zac Brown Band released the feel-good track "Fun Having Fun" today.
Written by lead singer Zac Brown alongside Kenny Habul, Kurt Thomas and Ben Simonetti, the song is featured on their forthcoming new album, "The Comeback," out Oct. 15 via Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music.
"'Fun Having Fun' is about all the dumb stuff you do when you're a kid," said Brown. "One of my co-writers on the track is actually my buddy Kurt (Thomas), who I went to high school with in Dahlonega. He and I made a demo tape when we were kids called KZ, for Kurt and Zac, and he was the first guy I ever sat down with and thought, 'We're gonna be big.' It was fun to circle back to that time in my life and remember some of the things that we did together, especially with the perspective of now being a parent. We really wanted to include a bluegrass-type song on this album, and 'Fun Having Fun' was definitely the right one."
"The Comeback" also features the lead single, "Same Boat." Entirely co-written and co-produced by Brown, the new record is the band's latest since their 2019 release of "The Owl."
