    Zac Brown of Zac Brown Band has launched his record label, called Southern Ground Artists, Inc. It is dedicated to developing, introducing and promoting some of Georgia's brightest rising stars!

    Brown's label comes out of a devotion to giving talented artists a voice. "I'd like to think there's a movement coming out of Atlanta that's like [Memphis-based soul label] Stax was, back in the '60s," he said in an interview with The Tennessean. "The Wood Brothers are one of the best live bands you'll ever see, and we just got Sonia Leigh's record finished, and I'm super proud of it. There's Blackberry Smoke coming onboard, and Nic Cowan and Levi Lowrey, and all the people that love our music will love their music, too, I feel confident."
