The Song Remembers When: Zac Brown Band – “Homegrown”

We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…

Song: “Homegrown”
Songwriters: Zac Brown, Niko Moon, and Wyatt Durrette
Album: Jekyll + Hyde

In January 2015, Jekyll + Hyde, the fourth album from Zac Brown Band, was about to be released. The lead single from the project was “Homegrown.” It was written by Zac Brown and a couple of his frequent collaborators, artist Niko Moon and songwriter Wyatt Durrette

Niko brought the idea to the session. He was thinking about how much he loved being home, how much his town shaped him, and how the most important things in life are family and friends.  He knew other people would relate. 

Releasing the song as the first single proved to be the right choice. “Homegrown” flew to the top of the chart where it would remain for three weeks.
