How Buffett and the Zac Brown Band Got Together

August 11th, 2010

Jimmy Buffett and the Zac Brown Band collaborate on the single “Knee Deep” on the group’s upcoming album You Get What You Give, and Billboard details how they hooked up:

“We met him on a camping trip last year,” bassist John Driskell Hopkins reports, “and just sat around the fire with him for awhile. That was a quick friendship. He’s a real cat, really down to earth and doesn’t have a whole lot of ego and just a super nice guy…We did a lot of vocals down at his place in Key West and he happened to come through, so we got him to sit in and it sounded great. It sounds like a Buffett song when he sings it. Whatever he sings sounds like a Buffett song, y’know?”

Pre-order the album now at Amazon.com for $12.99.
