"Welcome Home" is the fourth major-label studio album by the Zac Brown Band. It was released on
May 12, 2017 through New Elektra
Produced by GRAMMY-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and In The Arena Productions, and recorded at Southern Ground Nashville studio.
Overall, Welcome Home is enjoyable and takes you into Zac Brown’s experiences with evocative lyrics and strong music that precisely compose the presence of home. The return to the band’s debut style seemingly rejects the experimentation of recent albums, EPs, and collaborations by Zac Brown, but there is a light playful attitude that emerges and enhances the depth of connections and relationships built, recovered, and cherished across Welcome Home.
Welcome Home is a beautiful record, full of imagery and experiences, and a worthy return to the style that made Zac Brown Band’s debut as successful as it was. It’s also a strong step forward to continuing the band’s success and ability to make personal connections to listeners. --- popmatters.com
