Zac Brown Band Deliver New Tunes on ‘Saturday Night Live’ [Watch]
Zac Brown Band appeared as the musical guest on the March 7 episode of Saturday Night Live, performing not one, but two songs from their upcoming album Jekyll + Hyde. Actor Chris Hemsworth (Thor) hosted the show, which was packed with humorous skits.
But it was the country band who kicked things off with their most recent single, "Homegrown." With lyrics like: "I got some good friends, that live down the street / Got a good lookin’ woman with her arms ‘round me / Live in a small town where it feels like home / I got everything I need and nothing that I don’t / Homegrown, homegrown," the nostalgic song encourages listeners to fondly recall their favorite memories of home. The seven-piece band played the catchy medley in front of a packed audience — something they've gotten very comfortable with over the past several years.
In addition, the group also performed "Heavy Is the Head" with Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. The hard-rocking song featured plenty of heavy rock music, gritty lyrics and electrical guitar riffs. It's a sound departure from ZBB's more easygoing, laid-back tunes, but it demonstrates the breadth of their musical capacity. As the folksy country music group continues to mature, they are pushing themselves to impressive new heights. Fans who love their unique talent will enjoy watching them branch out and explore new styles of music.
Jekyll + Hyde will be released on April 28. For more information about Zac Brown Band's upcoming album and tour dates, click here.
