CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band as our Artist Of The Week!
Throughout their career spanning over a decade, Zac Brown Band has had 6 consecutive albums reach the top 10 of the Billboard 200 and 5 consecutive albums debut at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Since their debut, Zac Brown Band has developed a reputation with critics and fans alike as one of the most dynamic live / studio acts, marked by strong musicianship and a creative range that defies genre boundaries. To date, the band has won 3 Grammys, sold over 30 million singles, 9 million albums, amassed 9.3+ billion catalogue streams and achieved 15 #1 radio singles.
Their seventh studio album, The Comeback is out today. The title and overall theme speak into the deadly pandemic which continues to impact daily life, but it also refers to more general obstacles that country fans face — and personal themes like the difficult divorce frontman Zac Brown endured a few years back.
Brown says, “The Comeback celebrates our collective resilience as a community. This music is about standing together and rediscovering our roots and what makes us human. We feel incredibly blessed to be back out on the road again, sharing these new songs with our fans. The only good thing about getting knocked down is The Comeback when it comes back around.”
The Comeback contains 15 songs, all co-written and co-produced by Brown and long-time collaborator, Ben Simonetti. Jonathan Singleton, Wyatt Durrette, Luke Combs, Luke Dick, Ray Fulcher and the Cadillac Three‘s Neil Mason are among the co-writers listed on the project.
