Biography


Zac Brown Band all began with a restaurant owner dreaming of a career in music. Zac Brown, a Cumming, Georgia native, started a band in his college days but they disbanded before an album was finished recorded. The September 11, 2001 tragedy prompted him to pursue what he loves most, music, because life was too short to do something he did not enjoy.

He formed Zac Brown Band in 2002 with bassist John Hopkins and fiddler Jimmy De Martini. They even started their own label a year later, calling it Home Grown. In 2004, Brown sold his restaurant in Lake Oconee, Georgia to buy a tour bus. Together with his band, Brown toured full-time, hitting venues and festivals. In the same year, they released an indie album called "Far From Einstyne".
