Saying I can't wait for this new album is an understatement. But here we are, first song is out and all I wan't to do is hug my dad. And I know if he could, he would hug his dad if he could. Unfortunately, I faced the reality of losing people like my grandfathers as many of us have. Its a part of life, but that doesn't mean it is easy to go through.
All I want in my life is to be half as knowledgeable as my grandfathers and my dad. I want them to be proud of me as a man and proud of everything I hope to accomplish. The notion that parents are your best friends is 100% true. It sounds like a lame instagram caption, but I would rather spend a night at a pens game, or at a bar, or at home, or anywhere with my dad over anyone else in the world.
“My Old Man” is the first single from ZBB’s forthcoming new studio album, Welcome Home. The record is set for release on May 12; the band says that the project will bring them “straight back to their roots, Foundation-style,” referring to the group’s first major-label album, The Foundation. In the years since that record, which was released in 2008, the Zac Brown Band have embraced myriad styles and genres of music, but, as evidenced by “My Old Man,” fans can expect a more “traditional country” sound this time around
