Country music band Zac Brown Band have been signed by Atlantic Records, according to Billboard. "It was just a matter of getting the right deal for us and they stepped up to the plate with it," the band's singer and guitarist Zac Brown speaks of their new home.
Previously, the five-piece group split with Live Nation Records after the former CEO of the recording company resigned. "When he left the company, I think they wanted to stick their normal business model," Brown says. "They treated us very well. They helped us out for a year and now we're free and happy and encouraged to sign with Atlantic."
After the agreement was settled, the band plan to release their next project, "The Foundation", on November 18 in the U.S. Produced by Keith Stegall, the record will feature "Whatever It Is", a ballad about the bewildering power of love, and a re-recorded version of "Chicken Fried" off the band's 2005 effort "Home Grown".
