On Tuesday afternoon (July 19), the members of Zac Brown Band and industry insiders were treated to a sneak peek of the Country Music Hall of Fame’s new exhibit: Homegrown: Zac Brown Band. Opening on July 22 and running through July 2017, the exhibit features ZBB’s instruments, awards, song manuscripts, journals, stage wear, photos and an assortment of interesting collectibles.
“I was pretty amazed just looking back, we spend all of our time building things and growing that we don’t often look back to see what we’ve built,” said Zac after touring the exhibit of the first time. “Seeing everybody and everybody’s personal things and all the memories attached to every one of them, from all of our beginnings, it’s kind of emotional for us. It’s pretty amazing, really, what we can do as a unit together.”
Formed in Atlanta in 2002, ZBB has been a mainstay on the country charts since their 2008 No. 1 hit “Chicken Fried.” Over the past eight years, the band has earned 13 No. 1s on Billboard’s country charts, released four critically acclaimed studio albums and racked up numerous industry awards, including three Grammys. Currently, ZBB is headlining its Black Out the Sun Tour.
