Let’s have a closer look at his career, net worth and lifestyle and unveil some of the interesting facts about him.
How Did Zac Brown Become Rich?
From his childhood, Zac had an instinct of becoming a singer and his mother was the then professional guitarist. At the age of 8, he was provided with the guitar of his mother and a professional guitar coach was designated to teach him playing classic guitar and banjo. Till then, he has been an active guitar and banjo player and has an unstoppable passion for music. It is reported that he considered singing as a career while he was on a tour with his friends. He unofficially sang a few songs on the tour, which amassed hundreds of crowds who praised his melodious voice. This was the leading inspiration for him to become a top-class country and pop rock star. Zac made his debut with the album Home Grown.
However, founding the Zac Brown Band was the turning point of his life and career. To date, the band has released 7 studio albums, 2 live albums, and 1 compilation. Each has been dearly loved throughout the US and abroad. Chicken Fried 2003, Home Grown 2007, You Get What You Give 2010, Welcome Home 2017, The Owl 2019, and Leaving Love Behind 2020 are the most popular among them.
His solo songs are no exception in fame and popularity. His popular solo songs include Toes, Free and Swayze 2019. Both his collaborative band albums and solo songs have received positive feedback both from critics and his fans. Ultimately, he has won three Grammy Awards and two Best Country Albums Ever Award for two consecutive years.
It is obvious that Zac has a widely successful career as a singer and he pursues it with great pride. However, he is also an investor and businessman. He is the sitting Chief Executive Officer and Owner of Grind Knives and is an active investor in the Stillhouse Creek Distillery since 2019.
What Is Zac Brown Net Worth?
As of the latest reports of September 2021, Zac has a hefty net worth of roughly $50 million. His major source of income is his fabulous career as a musician and a singer. All of his solo and collaborative albums have been widely successful and are being appraised worldwide. A million copies of his solo and collaborative albums are sold in the US and abroad every year. This has enabled him to encompass a hefty amount of $50 million.
The major source of his staggering income, however, is his Zac Brown Band. In July 2019, Forbes ranked the Zac Brown Band as the country’s second highest paid band – that followed the popular Luke Bryan Band that earned $42.5 million in the same year. The Zac Brown Band earned $38.5 million in that year alone. In total, the band played roughly 50 shows and grossed $1 million per one of them. This is certainly a fantastic addition to his rapidly increasing net worth.
Zac is a keen knife enthusiast and is the founder of the knife manufacturing company called Grind Knives. This company manufactures kitchen and dining products, and knives are the most popular products of the brand. Founded in 2007, Grind Knives still manufactures quality and beautifully designed hard-tactic knives and is popular across Georgia. The knife-making company has 147 employees and $29 million annual revenue. This certainly adds a handsome amount to Zac’s fortune.
A fair share of his income also comes from his angel investment in the Stillhouse Creek Distillery. He has been investing a handsome amount since 2017 and has received a greater turnover.
