Zac Brown sat down with CBS This Morning to talk about his new The Owl album. He also discussed his separation from his wife of twelve years and their impending divorce.
Zac said, “You know, lots of things that you don’t ever foresee. But you know, when you live in something long enough that it’s not working anymore, and that the differences that are greater, and that it’s healthier to not live in conflict than it is to try to stay. And no matter how many mistakes, or whatever, and she absolutely was the one. And, you know, we have five amazing, beautiful children together. And that was the reason that we were together.”
He added, “It’s not how I planned it to be. But it gave me more than I could’ve ever dreamed of having, you know? It helps me to, like, grieve [over] the things that have happened. And if I’m doing it right, then other people can, too. Like, when I look out and see people crying, that’s us doing our job. And we’re always chasing that emotion in the songs.”
