It is not until halfway through Welcome Home that the Zac Brown Band start to inject some colour and character back into their music with the upbeat Family Table. While the lyrical content is still firmly set to appeal to the classic values of middle America, the music offers a glimpse of the band’s adventurous and energetic live presence. Mournful and evocative, the stripped back My Old Man is an excellent choice for lead single, exploring intergenerational relationships in a manner reminiscent of – if more positively framed than – Harry Chapin’s Cat’s in the Cradle.
