Zac Brown Band – Uncaged

A few years back Zac Brown Band were the latest hot thing in country music. They won some Grammy Awards. People were calling them an overnight success. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Atlanta, Georgia outfit got together in 2002 and toured incessantly.  It took until 2008 for them to achieve any commercial success. They paid their dues. When they did taste success it was a heaping spoonful of it. Proving that they are not one hit or album wonder they have now released Uncaged, a strong album that has been short listed as one of the best country albums of 2012. A blend of Southern Rock and bluegrass, Uncaged is an album that will have you bopping your head and singing along from the first song to the last. Harmonies are tight and the arrangements are cool. They have stuck with the formula that made them a hit. Though they do step a little out of their comfort zone with a 70s sounding tune. It features some funky horns. They should do more of that as it is one of the stronger tracks on the album.
