Album: The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 (2013)
  • This is a track from the The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 EP. The four songs were produced by Dave Grohl, and also feature the Foo Fighter frontman on drums. Brown first met Grohl while picking up his Grammys outfit at a John Varvatos store in West Hollywood. The former Nirvana stickman and the country star bonded over an interest in analog equipment and a friendship developed. in early November 2013, Grohl flew out to Nashville to record with the band. "I don't know how I tricked him into working with us, but it's really cool," Brown said.
  • Brown explained to The Hollywood Reporter that Grohl had not heard of his Zac Brown Band when they first met. "They just know we've had some songs on country radio," the Nashville frontman said. "And while we've got a great foothold in country music, that doesn't encompass everything we do."

    "Dave Grohl's street credit and the energy that was brought into these recording sessions, it's a big deal for us," he added. "I feel like it's kind of the tipping point."
  • Grohl and the Zac Brown Band took time out from their recording to perform this song at the Country Music Awards.
  • Grohl charmingly said that he was flattered that his name was being used as the record title. "He told me he wanted to call it The Grohl Sessions and I said, 'Dude, are you sure you want to do it?' It's the most flattering thing anyone has ever done for me," said the Foo frontman. "It's going to be really weird to click on iTunes and see a recording called The Grohl Sessions."
