Zac Brown Band is an American country/folk/jam band based in Atlanta, GA. Its members include Zac Brown (lead vocals, guitar), Jimmy De Martini (fiddle, vocals), John Driskell Hopkins (bass guitar, vocals), Coy Bowles (guitar, keyboards), Chris Fryar (drums), Clay Cook (guitar, keyboards, mandolin, steel guitar, vocals), and Daniel de los Reyes (percussion).
Taking shape in 2002, a Zac Brown Band tour was launched right out of the gate with a heavy schedule of 200 dates a year. The group consisted of Brown on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, with an accompanying bassist and drummer. By 2004 the band had acquired a tour bus and was touring full time. That year also saw the addition of violinist/fiddler and tenor vocalist Jimmy De Martini. Not long after, Coy Bowles joined the group and the core of Zac Brown Band was established.
The Zac Brown Band debut single, "Chicken Fried,” was on the group’s first independent album, Far from Einstyne (2004). The single was later re-recorded and released to country radio in 2008, leading Atlantic Records to acquire distribution of the song. Later that same year, "Chicken Fried" reached No. 1 on the country charts.
In 2006, 2009, and 2010, the Zac Brown Band played the Bonnaroo Music Festival. The group has also performed at The Hangout Music Festival, Hullabalou Music Festival, and opened for Dave Matthews Band during the latter’s 2010 Summer Tour.
The Zac Brown Band album Uncaged was released in 2012 to good reviews, with Billboard declaring it the best country album of that year. In early 2013, Zac Brown Band performed the National Anthem during the NFC Championship Game between the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco 49ers at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Of the five studio albums the Zac Brown Band recorded by 2012, two went platinum, The Foundation (2008) and You Get What You Give (2010), while one reached gold, Uncaged (2012).
The Zac Brown Band has multiple No. 1 singles on the Billboard country charts, including "Chicken Fried," "Toes," "Highway 20 Ride," "Free," "As She's Walking Away," "Colder Weather," "Knee Deep," "Keep Me in Mind," and "Goodbye in Her Eyes.”
