About Zac Brown Band

Three-time GRAMMY winners and multi-platinum artists Zac Brown Band have become one of music’s most heralded acts. The band’s three platinum-selling albums, Uncaged, You Get What You Give, and The Foundation have sold nearly seven million copies total and produced a historic series of eleven #1 hit singles. The band performed for over 1.3 million fans in 2013 and is currently on the ‘Great American Road Trip’ tour, which included a sold-out, two-night stand at Fenway Park without any support acts — a feat only accomplished by four other bands (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band, The Police and The Rolling Stones) and a performance at Wrigley Field. Zac Brown Band’s latest album, The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1, is out now on Southern Ground and features a 45-minute film by Southern Reel on the making of the album. Zac Brown Band is managed by ROAR, a Beverly Hills-based artist and brand management company.  The band is also represented by top talent agency CAA, public relations firm Shore Fire Media and strategic digital marketing agency Girlilla Marketing.
