GRAMMY® award-winning Zac Brown Band launched “Same Boat,” their Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music debut single, on Friday, garnering overwhelming enthusiasm and praise from radio, press and fans.
The poignant track, written by front man Zac Brown along with Ben Simonetti and Jonathan Singleton, begins the week as the most-added song at country radio and debuts at No. 25 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart as well as No. 34 at Country Aircheck/Mediabase.
Music Choice Manager of Country Programming Jim Murphy raved, “Zac Brown Band knocks it out of the park with ‘Same Boat’. Fun, up-tempo and perfect for our times. I can’t wait to play it on Music Choice!”
Rolling Stone said, “Zac Brown Band makes an upbeat plea for peace and coexistence in the new song ‘Same Boat,’” adding it “welds that message to an uplifting melody and pristine layered harmonies,” while Taste of Country claimed it will “take fans back to the good-time vibes of ‘Chicken Fried,’ and ‘Toes,’” also offering “poignantly timely themes of unity and hope.” American Songwriter also raved about “Same Boat,” adding “The beauty of the single lies in the universal message behind the words, and while it’s an upbeat and catchy tune, it’s also a feel-good song that can serve as a positive mantra.”
