After premiering the song live on the CMT Awards on June 6th, 'The Wind' hit digital outlets worldwide. 'The Wind' definitely has more of a bluegrass feel, which is a style that seems to have been abandoned by many country artists these days. Aside from the incredible pick work from Zac Brown and the fiddle playing from Jimmy De Martini, the songs chorus really stands out and provides the catch in the song. "Well the wind blows babe, you can bet I'll be riding high with it, holding on for my dear life just like I always did, close your eyes babe, take a breath, say my name and I'll be there, my love will find you anywhere, anywhere my love." With an up-tempo beat, strong melodies, and a unique crossover between traditional and contemporary country, Zac Brown Band should be prepared to have another number one single on their hands.
The bands new album 'Uncaged' hits stores and digital outlets on July 10th. Zac Brown fans can hear 'The Wind' now on AOL Radio's New Country First.
