Zac Brown Band continues to be one of country music's top acts, but they don't strictly define themselves in that genre. They've explored rock, bluegrass, soul and reggae in their music over the years, and they'll continue exploring new genres on upcoming albums.
Zac Brown Band drummer Chris Fryar tells The Birmingham News , "We, meaning the band, are growing collectively as an artist, allowing all of our influences and emotions to color the music. It's essential. We're just wired that way."
Chris has a feeling their followers will be on board for whatever experimentation they try in the future, saying, "Some fans might not like that so much, but most fans really do."
Zac Brown Band plays a show in Chris's hometown of Birmingham, AL Saturday night.
