NASHVILLE, TN. (Aug. 18, 2010) Yamaha Artist Services - Nashville is proud to welcome All American country music star Zac Brown to its artist roster! Zac, lead singer of Zac Brown Band, has chosen to write on a Yamaha C2 grand piano.
"Zac is such a talented artist and we are pleased to welcome him into our ever-growing roster of talented artists," comments Chris Gero, Corporate Director for Yamaha Artist Services - Nashville. "We were thrilled to place a Yamaha grand piano in his home to serve as a songwriting tool and hopefully an inspiration for his next round of material."
The former Georgian restaurant owner formed the Zac Brown Band in 2004, and in 2008 reached the top of the charts with the hit single "Chicken Fried." In 2010, Zac Brown Band were named GRAMMY's Best New Artist and nominated for the Academy of Country Music Awards' Entertainer of the Year.

The band's much-anticipated follow up album You Get What You Give will be available Sept. 21. Front man Zac Brown notes that the new album "is representative of where we are right now. It combines elements of our southern rock and country roots, but also stays true to our jam-band style musicianship from the live show."
