Listen to Zac Brown Band Radio on iHeartRadio

Zac Brown Band is making plans for their next album.  Frontman Zac Brown says the group has carved out time later this year to devote to the project. 

Brown adds that an album isn't the only thing the group has in the works.  The country star says the band has "a lot of cool things coming down," and they're "gonna have some cool announcements to make" before the summer is over. 

Zac Brown Band released the EP The Grohl Sessions, Vol.1 back in December.  Their last full album was 2012's Uncaged.  Brown and company are currently on their Great American Road Trip.  The band will wrap up a two-night stand in Holmdel, New Jersey Friday night.
