Clay Cook Reflects on His Time With Zac Brown Band

Talks New Welcome Home Tour

If multi-instrumentalist Clay Cook doesn’t get a song he’s written or co-written recorded on a Zac Brown Band album, it’s no sweat.

The Grammy-winning group’s latest album Welcome Home is mostly co-written by Brown, Coy Bowles and Brown’s Sir Roosevelt bandmates Niko Moon and Ben Simonetti, the latter two of whom co-wrote the band’s latest smash “My Old Man” with Brown.

“I’ve only got one song that I’ve written in the history of Zac Brown Band, and that’s on the last record called, ’Wildfire,'” Cook said over the phone while on a day off the Welcome Home Tour. “It’s just one of those things where the songs that I write don’t have the right vibe. It just doesn’t. I mean, I might have been butt-hurt if I was 20.”
