By Kory Grow
Country-rockers the Zac Brown Band announced today that they will release "The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1" on iTunes on December 10th. The release, which Dave Grohl produced and played the drums on, will feature the recorded debut of the song "Day for the Dead," which the band and the Foo Fighters frontman recently performed at the CMAs. Other tracks on the release include "All Alright," "Let It Rain" and "The Muse," the latter of which was written by the Wood Brothers, an ensemble signed to Brown's label Southern Ground Artists.
"Dave is a musical genius," said Zac Brown in a press release. "It's been amazing to play with him onstage and get to spend time working with him in the studio. We are excited for fans to hear the music we've been able to create together."
Grohl discussed the collaboration with Rolling Stone at the American Music Awards this past Sunday. "They're unbelievable," he said of the group. "The band is so good they can be tracked live; we didn't fuck with computers, we tracked live, four-part harmonies around one microphone. It's rocking. I didn't know what [the band] was [prior to this]. People are like, 'Oh, it's country.' 'No, it's not, it's like the Allman Brothers.' 'No, it's not, it's jam band.' I don't even know what you would call it, it's fucking great."

I like Dave as a musician but he is an attention whore...
I'm not a country music fan, but Dave Grohl could turn me into one. He could produce a record of those screaming goats and I'd buy it. He is a musical god and a very funny and entertaining guy.
no big thing.....but don't see many country going "rock" (ozzy is rock...what they call rock
today is bubblegum rock)
