Zac Brown’s New Trio, Sir Rosevelt, Releases New Song, “The Bravest” [Listen]

No, Zac Brown Band has not broken up. However, Zac Brown has teamed with songwriter Nico Moon and producer Ben Simonetti to form a new Southern pop trio, Sir Rosevelt, which will drop its self-titled debut album on Dec. 15.

The 11-track offering, which seeks to fuse the sounds of pop, dance, acoustic instrumentation and Southern stylings, features two tracks co-written by Pharell Williams and two tracks co-produced by Timbaland.

“Sir Rosevelt is a new chapter in addition to Zac Brown Band,” says Zac. “A new outlet for creativity, connection and art. Get ready.”

Zac and Nico have been working together for more than 10 years and have been co-writers on a number of tunes, including “Homegrown,” “Loving You Easy” and “Beautiful Drug.” Ben was the recording engineer on ZBB’s 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
