You Get What You Give
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Southern Ground/Atlantic
Zac Brown Band know fame is fickle, so if the songs on You Get What You Give deal with relaxing and enjoying life in the moment, you can't really blame them. Not that they have anything to worry about: the tightly-spun songs hook you in and take you for a spin on a most enjoyable journey. "I Play the Road" is a slice-of-life song that documents the band's rigorous road schedule; its fast-pumping piano and twangy electric guitar nod to the Allman Brothers. "Who Knows" is a sprawling 10-minute-plus epic jam, while "As She's Walking Away" has lush harmonies, a shuffling beat and none other than Alan Jackson making a guest appearance.
