Zac Brown Striving To Give Daughters Perspective, Keep Them Unspoiled
Zac Brown says he doesn't want his children to get caught up in his success. The Zac Brown Band frontman tells "Southern Living" magazine it's important to him that his daughters are grounded, and know how to keep things in perspective. He says he wants them to understand what it means to have a job and to realize "there's no free ride," so by the time they're teenagers they aren't "spoiled kids in high school that end up being worthless later on." Brown adds that food is a big part of his own life as well as his family's Southern heritage, so he wants his girls to "grow up canning in the kitchen with us and making preserves," and to "learn what it means to really fish."
Brown blends his love of both music and food in a number of ways. Instead of hosting meet-and-greet sessions at his concert he invites fans to "eat-and-greet" events. He recently opened the Southern Ground Social Club -- a restaurant, performance venue, boutique, and tattoo parlor -- in Senoia, Georgia, and he's expanding his Southern Ground Music & Food Festival. Zac Brown Band will host their second annual event in Charleston, South Carolina on October 20th and 21st, while the inaugural Nashville festival is set for September 21st and 22nd.
