    Please tell them to hurry up with their new CD, dying to get my hands on some of the new songs they play at the show. Knee Deep is an instant classic!
    It's awesome to see them go from the local 'sports bar band' that I used to see play 7 years ago to packing huge venues, way to go!

    ZBB is my newest "favorite".....I saw (and recorded) a show on the TV, originally shown in September 09, called "Introducing: Zac Brown Band". It was a highlight of "the struggles and successes of the ZBB". What a heartening show! The entire band epitomizes the benefits of friendship, family, fun, and living and loving over being self-centered and egotistical. Their success is their reward for hard work, dedication, and being grounded in those things in Life that truly matter. It's not about fame; it's about doing what they enjoy, being real, and putting those they love first. They are not successful because of what they do, but for who they (collectively) are. Live long, and prosper!

    I would highly recommend that ya'll pick up ZBB's new CD/DVD titled "Pass the Jar". $20 @ Bestbuy. It has 2 CD's of live music (originals and covers.....including the faastest version of The Devil Went Down to GA that you'll ever hear) and a DVD of the live concert at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The concert was a fundraiser to raise money to rebuild the GA Theatre in Athens (GO DAWGS!!!) which burned to the ground a year or so ago.

    Hop who is your brother in the band? Why don't you pull some family ties strings and get them to do a show locally to raise funds for the oil clean up of our little slice of Paradise. They could play at the ballpark in PCB. IT WOULD BE HUGE!!!! I would gladly pay $100+ a ticket to see them and help out our community.

    My brother is the bassist and sings. They are great guys. I'll mention it. Atlantic Records books them these days. I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't already planning some kind of benefit. Thanks for being a fan. go dawgs!

    It amazes me the quality of music that calls home to the Athens GA vicinty (WP, ZBB, REM, DBT). The biggest thing I miss about moving here from Lawrenceville/Dacula is not being close to Athens.....especially on gameday!!

    We scored a really great CD at the ZBB Breaking Southern Ground concert in Atlanta - handed out for free for penning a short letter of support to a soldier. Love it!

    I'm loving Colder Weather off the new CD. The lyrics have a Please Come to Boston vibe for me. I heard them perform this song at the Atlanta concert last May and liked it immediately.

    Also like Knee Deep because it is just plain funn and taps into my inner beach bum spirit. Makes me want to stick a paper umbrella in my Coke.
