So far the Zac Brown Band has taken 8 singles to the top of the Billboard Country Singes charts and one more is currently right there. But it’s been nearly two years since the guys released their album, You Get What You Give. That means it’s time for new music and the guys appear ready to deliver in a big way.
The new album will titled Uncaged and here is a great live version of the title track.
Uncaged – Zac Brown Band
Uncaged is a rocking track. I’m not sure if the guys have had a song like this on the radio yet. I had the chance to see them last year live and they definitely had a few rocking tracks like this in their arsenal. I think this track will play well for the radio country audience. It should be another top hit for the band.
The song is about letting loose in life and just becoming free. I’m sure it’s something the guys in the band, including Zac, feel like they have accomplished in their lives. They have struck out on their own and after years of playing the small time gigs they are now one of the biggest bands in country history. That has to be a great feeling. I’m sure they’re still caged in some ways to responsibilities and people counting on them all the time, but it has to be a great feeling to be living your dream.
Most of us get caught up in the day to day of a regular job. We have our families and their obligations. It’s wonderful, but there is always room in life to get uncaged and find a little freedom and happiness of a different kind. There really are no barriers in life except the ones we put on ourselves.
I’m looking for Uncaged to become another huge hit for the Zac Brown Band. It’s a little early to say, but they are looking like good contenders to possibly give Alabama a run for their money with the consecutive number one singles record.
