About the Album

Now that Jimmy Buffett has tried repositioning himself as a country artist by cutting duets with the likes of Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney and Clint Black, it should come as no surprise that the Parrothead influence has begun making its way into Nashville, and the first major-label effort from Zac Brown features not one but two songs ("Toes" and "Where the Boat Leaves From") devoted to the joys of getting buzzed and playing music in some seaside locale with good weather. Seeing how most of the great names of country's formative era rarely if ever sang about vacationing (beyond spending the odd night in a honky-tonk), this is an interesting and somewhat puzzling development, though Brown and his band have embraced a canny range of marketable influences on The Foundation. "Chicken Fried" is a radio-friendly homage to country-as-lifestyle (including chicken fried steak, cold beer and supporting the troops), "It's Not OK" is a less-than-good-natured rant against some panhandler that will warm the hearts of Toby Keith fans, the "lite-funk with fiddle" groove of "Different Kind of Groove" suggests these guys have been listening to a lot of Dave Matthews, and "Highway 20 Ride" and "Free" show the influence of the more sentimental branches of the Texas Singer-Songwriter tradition (through the results are more Pat Green than Robert Earl Keen). Brown has a fine voice and he and his band are solid pickers who've polished these songs to a fine semi-gloss after a few thousand nights on the road, but there's a calculated air of "something for everyone" about The Foundation that doesn't sound eclectic so much as an effort to chase down as many demographics as possible. Brown and his partners are determined to sing something you're going to like, but The Foundation would be a bit more satisfying if more of it came from the heart instead of some sort of strategy session. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide

Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Great CD I really enjoy every song on the CD. The lyrics are fun. My two-year-old runs around the house singing the songs! 01/25/2009
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Chicken Fried I bought this CD for the sole purpose of one song only...Chicken Fried...My 4 year old sings it everytime he hears it on the radio and now he can sing and dance anytime we feel like hearing that song. We didn't care much for the rest of the cd but we now have the one song he wanted and we are happy with that. 12/04/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Country of GA I really enjoy listening to this band on the radio, and finally had to buy the entire CD. It is a thrill to hear the lyrics from this band; and many of the words are related to the time I have spent in GA from time to time with family and friends. I put this on my iPod and enjoy the songs everytime they come around on the list. 01/18/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Better than some I got the cd for the song Country Fried, just couldn't get enough of it. A few of the songs on the cd are not that great, but they might grow on me. The rest are pretty good. All in all I was glad I bought it. 11/22/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Finally got one! Unable to buy this overseas. None of our base stores have this album. Plenty of good songs to listen to. Great artist, came to RAF Lakenheath on the USO tour, thanks!For you overseas buyers, this was received within 10 days of ordering. 03/01/2009
