Zac Brown Band return with a sledgehammer straight to the heart of any “girl dad,” unveiling the full version of his heartwarming, “The Man Who Loves You the Most.”
Built on a father’s unconditional love for his daughter and first introduced on actor John Krasinski’s Some Good News, the tender new ballad arrives today like a warm and fuzzy lullaby. Featuring patient, organic instrumentation and a swaying rhythm, it’s sung by a man who knows he and his little girl can’t always be together, but promises they will forever share a bond … even as she grows up and goes off into the world.
Brown wrote the track while self-isolating during through the COVID-19 pandemic, and says it was inspired by all the time he’s been able to spend with his own daughters — an unforeseen bright spot in these gloomy times. You can almost picture the countless father-daughter dances at country-fan weddings which are sure to come.
“Since we can’t tour, this is the first time in years I’ve been able to spend an extended period of time at home with my kids. I’m blessed with four incredible daughters, this song is a constant reminder that their dad loves them unconditionally,” said Brown. “We miss connecting with everyone out on the road, but we are lucky to be able to create and share new music in the meantime and hope our fans enjoy this beautiful reminder of the importance of family.”
“The Man Who Loves You the Most” serves as the band’s first release since their 2019 album The Owl. To go along with the track, limited edition T-shirts and greeting cards are also available through the band’s website.
