Zac Brown has just announced that “Uncaged”, the band’s latest album, will be released on July 10, 2012. The band has also just added percussionist Daniel de los Reyes to its line-up. Adding Reyes to the current rhythm section of bassist John Driskell Hopkins and drummer Chris Fryar allows the band to expand its sound into new territory. Daniel has performed with Earth, Wind & Fire, Sheryl Crow, Sting, Don Henley, Peter Frampton, Jennifer Lopez and many more.
“[It] creates a new kind of pulse within the band,” leader Zac told the Associated Press, noting that the band’s music is “really about making people dance.”
Zac Brown Band’s current lineup consists of singer/guitarist Zac Brown, violinist/singer Jimmy DeMartini, bassist/singer John Driskell Hopkins, guitarist/organist Coy Bowles, multi-instrumentalist/singer Clay Cook and drummer Chris Fryar.
