With lyrical metaphors of churning weather cycles, Zac Brown Band allude to the evolution of heartbreak in an unfolding relationship that was, “all right but now all wrong” in the single, “All Alright” from The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1.
In the song’s new video (above), director Cole Cassell uses simplistic production to showcase not-so-simple talent, which inevitably centers the viewers’ attention towards what matters most, the music. The video is comprised of footage from the Grohl Sessions documentary, showing each member ensconced in their own roles yet effortlessly bringing together a cohesive sound.
In addition to the eight ZBB guys, guest musician AJ Ghent plays steel guitar and producer Dave Grohl makes a cameo behind the soundboard. The Foo Fighters lead singer produced and played drums on the EP.
“The band is so good they can be tracked live; we didn’t fuck with computers, we tracked live, four-part harmonies around one microphone,” Grohl tells Rolling Stone. “It’s rocking. I didn’t know what [the band] was [prior to this]. People are like, ‘Oh, it’s country.’ ‘No, it’s not, it’s like the Allman Brothers.’ ‘No, it’s not, it’s jam band.’ I don’t even know what you would call it, it’s fucking great.”
