Zac was the 11th of 12 children, and showed an early interest in music. He started with his Mother’s guitar at the age of 8, and he took two years of classical guitar lessons. He soon developed a love of Country and Bluegrass when he started playing on weekends with this father and brother.
While still a teen, he started touring through the US Southeast and had a busy schedule of 200 dates a year. He started putting together a band of young talented musicians, worked on his songwriting skills, and wrote many songs. One of them became his debut single, and took top spot on the charts, but only after a legal battle that could have seen him blacklisted in Nashville!
Join me next Saturday, November 10 at 9:20 for more with the Zac Brown Band!
Jeff Norgate and you…Saturday mornings since 2007!
