Listen to Zac Brown Band’s Soothing New Song, “You and Islands”

Zac Brown Band released a soothing new song, “You and Islands,” on July 31.

Penned by Zac Brown, Ben Simonetti and Adam James, “You and Islands” was written, recorded and produced while in quarantine. The breezy tune finds Zac crooning the optimistic chorus about the feel-good days ahead: Let’s get back to you and islands / And everything baby, everything will be alright.

“This unprecedented time at home has given us the opportunity to write and share new music with our fans,” says Zac. “As we continue to navigate through this together, we hope our music can bring you a little bit of positivity and transport you to a different time and place—even if just for a few minutes. This was a fun track to record. We hope you sing along with us as we daydream about days to come!”

“You and Islands” is available on all digital platforms. Listen to “You and Islands” below.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
