Track of the Night: Day That I Die, by Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band is just country enough, but just enough folk and plain-ole roots rock that it all works out. Their tunes have a feel-good lilt, fantastic harmonies, superior song composition, and just a tinge of twang.  This track from their latest album, Uncaged, has a melancholy and thoughtful verse, an anthemic chorus, and as usual, a kinda crazy middle section.  Even an a cappella moment that reminds me of the Doobie Brothers’ Black Water. This one has a cameo by Amos Lee, but it doesn’t make a huge difference to me.  This song makes me yearn for a calm rocking chair on a porch on a late summer afternoon… and then it makes me want to get into high gear, get out, and enjoy life.
