Members of the Zac Brown Band "are just common guys."
Before each concert, they do an "eat and greet" barbecue with fans. They like the same stuff regular people do. They're just average guys who have an above-average career in music.
"We love music. We love what we do. We're passionate," said percussionist Daniel de los Reyes. "That's what we convey in our music and our performances."
We spoke to Reyes by phone from his home in Atlanta.
Zac Brown Band, known for songs such as "Chicken Fried," "Colder Weather," "Highway 20 Ride," the island-flavored "Toes" and "Knee Deep," will perform Sunday at CenturyLink Center Omaha. It will be the first time the band has performed in Omaha since it played for thousands at the short-lived Red Sky Music Festival in 2011.
The band's latest album, "Uncaged," hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts upon its release. Last week it was awarded a Grammy for best country album.
