Zac Brown and his father sat down with the Today show’s Willie Geist at Camp Southern Ground for a Father’s Day special.

Zac discusses creating his philanthropic passion project, Camp Southern Ground, after being inspired by his experiences as a camp counselor. The program at the Georgia-based state-of-the-art facility is an inclusive camp that combines children with neuro-developmental disorders with mainstream children. Its mission is to provide extraordinary experiences for these children to recognize and magnify the unique gifts within themselves and others in order to profoundly impact the world.

Willie and Zac also chatted about the inspiration behind Zac’s current single, “My Old Man,” as well as the first restaurant/music venue Zac opened with his dad in 2004.
