zac brown band jekyll hyde new album review

“ZAC BROWN BAND’S BEST WORK YET!” Zac Brown Band is easily one of the greatest bands to come out of country music in YEARS.  These guys have so much talent it’s unreal.  For instance take a song like “Toes” and compare it to “Highway 20 Ride”, it doesn’t get much different than that.  Now take [...]
