KNUE’s ‘Artist Spotlight’ of the Week: Zac Brown Band [VIDEO]
In 2002, a very talented country/folk band, The Zac Brown Band, was born out of Atlanta, Ga., and boy am I glad they did! Since then, front man of the group, Zac Brown, started his own label and the rest is history.
The group's story is fascinating. Zac's other love besides music, is food and cooking. So in 2004, Zac bought a music club and restaurant with his father named "Zac's Place." Shortly after, Zac sold the club and restaurant to a developer and bought a tour bus with the money. Thus, the Zac Brown Band was on its way to stardom.
"Zamily" is what the band calls their fan club members. This includes ticket pre-sale opportunities, pre-sale opportunities for special ZBB events, exclusive videos, photos and blogs, exclusive access to purchase VIP "Eat and Greet" passes to eat and hang with the band at shows (food is prepared by Zac Brown himself), a fan club community message board, access to fan club only contests, and a early membership pin.
Zac Brown band has had several No. 1 hits, sold out shows, and has received numerous awards. These guys did it their way, with no promoters, managers or labels to tell them what to do and when. The Zac Brown Brown have set themselves apart from the crowd, that's why the Zac Brown Band is KNUE'S "Artist Spotlight" of the week.
