Zac Brown is adding to his family – on and off the road.
The country front man, whose wife Shelly is pregnant with their fifth child, has announced the Zac Brown Band will welcome new bassist Matt Mangano to the crew.
Matt will officially join ZBB on its Great American Road Trip tour, launching May 24 in Lincoln, Neb.
“We’re always growing as musicians and challenging ourselves to bring new things to our fans,” the Zac Brown Band says. “Hop is an amazing talent and I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve got coming for the live show.”
Previously, Matt has toured with John Mayer and even recently played on ZBB’s The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 and Uncaged.
Kacey Musgraves will also join the band on select dates of the Great American Road Trip.
