This is all sorts of cool!  The Zac Brown Band just released a cover of James Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James”.  How did this happen?  Well, they have a history of stage time together.  Back at the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards, The Zac Brown Band performed their hit “Cold Weather” alongside Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James”.  Zac says James Taylor is probably his single biggest influence that he’s ever had and hopes their fans love this song as much as they do. The song is currently only available on Amazon Music.
