Zac Brown switched labels for their latest album. That’s always a touchy situation. One one hand things are exciting and there is new enthusiasm, but you never know if things will work out. I guess that’s always the case with any new music, but there had to be some uneasiness.
That would be until ZBB rocked it with the new record. They took a chance and really mixed rock and country and it worked out great. They’ve had hits on both rock and country radio.
Here is the new country single.
Beautiful Drug – Zac Brown Band
It has a really cool sound. It’s country. It’s Zac Brown, but it’s something really different than we’ve heard before.
And it kind of takes on a little something different for country music. The comparison is that love can be like a drug and it goes into the terminology like fix and addicted and habit and all those things.
I think people will be alright with it. The song is all about love and how a person can make you feel so good all the time and how great that can be.
But the real story for this one for me is the sound. It’s almost like some of the electric music that is popular right now and it’s really cool. I think Zac has said that he’s kind of envisioned this as a club song almost with the beat pumping and people dancing like crazy.
I like it. He’s mixing country with something new and it all seems to work – music, lyrics, etc.
Pretty cool song. I think people will like it.
