EP Review: Zac Brown Band - The Grohl Sessions, Vol 1

After word leaked that Zac Brown Band was in Nashville working with Dave Grohl on new music, fans were getting excited. They debuted "Day For The Dead" live on the CMA Awards a month ago and are releasing this EP this week. Find out what what we have to say about the EP here!

With The Grohl Sessions, Vol 1 Zac Brown Band offer fans a unique musical partnership with Foo Fighers frontman Dave Grohl, who coincidently also was the drummer for iconic band Nirvana. The ever musical Grohl and Zac Brown have been working together in Nashville (the first recordings made at Brown’s Southern Ground Nashville Studios and this is the band’s first indie release without longtime partner Atlantic Records. 

The Grohl Sessions, Vol 1 features four tracks written and produced with Dave Grohl. The songs fit well within the recent Zac Brown Band albums likeUncaged and You Get What You Give and showcase the ever growing ban’s musicality. “All Alright” could be a massive soul/country hit for the group if it were to be released to radio while “The Muse” has both great melodies and strong storytelling. The tune people will notice the most here is CMA Awards performed “Day For The Dead,” a song which features some stunning virtuosic performances from the band, Dave Grohl (on drums) and an a cappella vocal break-down worth of “The Sing Off” or bands like Pentatonix.

This EP is the first in a series of EPs with Grohl and is well worth your time and a fantastic addition to the group’s catalog.
