The Zac Brown Band has become one of music's most heralded acts. With a historic nine consecutive No. 1 hit singles, awe-inspiring musicianship and dynamic live shows, the Georgia six-piece is definitely built to last. Zac Brown Band's double-platinum major label debut The Foundation (Atlantic Records/Home Grown/Big Picture) was named one of Billboard's Top 20 albums of 2009, and the platinum follow-up, You Get What You Give (Atlantic/Southern Ground Artists), debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2010.
The band's latest album Uncaged (Atlantic/Southern Ground) which debuted at #1 on Billboard 200 is proof positive. The result of a highly collaborative process, it's the sound of a group of versatile musicians gelling into a formidable unit and realizing they're capable of anything their fearless leader happens to dream up, from traditional country ("The Wind") to Caribbean rhythms ("Jump Right In") and even slinky bedroom R&B ("Overnight"). Running roughshod over genre boundaries, and bringing its audience along for the ride, its title is absolutely accurate-this is truly the sound of a band Uncaged.
Since 2009, the band has garnered more than 50 combined Grammy, Academy of Country Music (ACM), American Music Award (AMA), Country Music Association (CMA), and CMT award nominations with wins including their 2011 Grammy win for "Best Country Collaboration with Vocals" and 2011 ACM "Top Vocal Event of the Year" for "As She's Walking Away" with Alan Jackson, 2010 Grammy win for "Best New Artist" and 2010 CMA win for "New Artist of the Year".
