One of the most anticipated new albums of 2012 is Uncaged by the Zac Brown Band. These guys have added yet another great musician to their lineup and the word from the fans and the reporters say this is the big time for the guys. They have never missed with a single and The Wind is something different and special.
The Wind – Zac Brown Band
Get ready to hang on with this song. It’s extremely fast paced. I don’t think there is any band out there that can keep up with ZBB. They are ripping up on the stage and it’s really incredible what they can do with their music.
The Wind is hard to keep up with, but from what I can tell it’s about a guy that’s seeing his love hitting the road. He’s trying to make her stay, but he can’t keep her from taking off. He’s trying to hold on and he still lets her know he’ll be there whenever she needs him. She’s off to wherever the wind takes her and things are about to change.
The song is about the story of the couple, but really the story of the song is the music and the melody. It’s just really different from anything else you’ll hear on the radio. That’s what ZBB has been doing for the last four years. They are different and that’s why people love them. Their music is catchy, fun, emotional and passionate. These guys have really changed the standards of what it takes to make great country music. It’s impressive.
The Wind is the obvious choice for a top hit later this summer. It’s an easy call to make. The guys have been to the top of the chart with all but two of their hits thus far and those two songs reached the silver spot on the charts. The Wind continues the evolution of the band and they’re better than ever.
It’s pretty cool to have these guys in country music.
