In the early stage of his musical career, the entrepreneurial Zac Brown opened a restaurant with his step-father in Lake Oconee, a popular tourist location in Georgia. Within a year a developer had made them an offer they couldn't refuse and Brown spent the proceeds on a tour bus and funded his first album 'Home Grown' with the change. Their debut single, 'Chicken Fried', which featured on 'Home Grown', was later re-recorded and put out as a single in 2008. With this the band took off and could be regularly heard on country radio. 'Chicken Fried' gave the band their first chart hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Country Charts. In 2012 they released 'Uncaged' with the announcement that drummer Daniel de los Reyes would be joining the band full time. 'Goodbye in Her Eyes' was released as a single and went straight in at number one on the Country Airplay Chart. 'Jump Right In' had similar success making it to number two, followed by 'Sweet Annie' that made it to the top. Following the success of 'Uncaged', the band recorded their next album 'Jekyll + Hyde' and released it alongside their 16th single 'Homegrown'. In 2017 they announced the title of their new album 'Welcome Home' with the lead single 'My Old Man' being heavily promoted all around the world.
