One of modern country music's greatest examples of fusion and crossover artistry comes from the Zac Brown Band. Active for more than a decade now, the Zac Brown Band (known as ZBB by many) has released some of the best jams airing on the radio today representing the genres of country and Southern Rock. Following its formation, ZBB spent years playing smaller festivals and venues, garnering a strong grass roots fan base in the process.
The Zac Brown Band was formed in 2002 when lead singer Zac Brown, an acoustic guitarist, lead vocalist, drummer, and a bass guitarist spent most of the year traveling the country to perform. Zac Brown tickets in those early days were sold for performances in small clubs as well as those at folk and jam band festivals.
Zac Brown operated a music club in Georgia with his father where the band frequently performed, before the restaurant was bought out by a developer. The money from the buyout was used by ZBB to buy a tour bus and hit the road year round for tour dates across the country. With the help of revenue from Zac Brown Band tickets, the group released its first independent album entitled Homegrown in 2004.
It was not until 2008 that Zac Brown Band released the first of its studio albums. Their debut studio album, entitled "The Foundation," featured a number of recreated older tracks the band had released on previous independent albums as well as singles released over the years. The group would go on to release two more studio albums in 2010 and 2012 entitled You Get What You Give and Uncaged, respectively. The latter album was considered the best country album of 2012 according to Billboard.
Like many other celebrities and entertainers, the members of ZBB have partnered with charities to help give back some of the revenues from Zac Brown Band tickets to benefit nonprofit groups. The band's biggest partnership is with Little Kids Rock, which is a national nonprofit that helps revitalize the musical programs at disadvantaged public schools across the United States.
The Zac Brown Band used to tour as much as 200 days out of the year during its formative years, and that heavy pace has not slowed down much in recent years as the group has experienced massive commercial success. In addition to a number of its own headlining tours, Zac Brown Band has performed at some of the country's biggest music festivals.
Appearances by ZBB include Bonnaroo Music Festival, The Rock Boat themed-cruise, Stagecoach Festival, Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, and the group's own themed-cruise experience entitled Sailing Southern Ground. In the coming week and months, Zac Brown Band tickets will be on sale for appearances at Country 2 Country Festival and its own events on the Zac Brown Band Tour 2014.
