Zac Brown Band has spent 20 years evolving.
From 2005's 'Chicken Fried' to 2019's 'The Warrior,' the band has proudly shifted their creative focus from breezy, beach country to more pop-influenced tracks and then back to their southern rock roots. The results have been chart-topping, multi-Platinum tunes at every turn.
One thing has remained constant, though, and that is the band’s captivating live shows.
Now, their first ever live covers album, From The Road, Vol. 1: Covers, delivers that electrifying feeling no matter where you go.
Giving a theatrical British-rock anthem a bit of homegrown southern flavor, Zac Brown Band’s cover of Queen’s 'Bohemian Rhapsody (recorded live from London’s SSE Arena in September 2015)' is out now and serves as the first taste of what fans can expect from the project.
"'Bohemian Rhapsody' is one of the craziest song arrangements, Freddie Mercury was a mad genius,” Brown shares. “It took us about a year of working on it off and on, to come up with a version that sounds like it. To pull that song off live is a testament to the ninjas in my band. It’s one of my favorite covers to do live, and getting to play it at Wembley was a huge moment for us.”
Celebrating both the group’s fondness for sonic exploration, and their talent as performers, the project is a looking glass into the unpredictability of a ZBB show.
The record features a surprise-filled track list recorded throughout their decades of globe-trotting and captures the magic of a Zac Brown Band concert.
As we await more information about the Covers album, the band will continue their touring trek around the country, which will wrap up on Nov. 4 with a two-night stand at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre.
