HEAR NOW: Cody Johnson & Zac Brown Join Forces on ‘Wild Palomino’ Update
I was on vacation last week, so just in case you missed it; Zac Brown Band and Cody Johnson released a song Friday called “Wild Palomino.” It's an outstanding update to the ZBB song that was originally featured on their '21 album, The Comeback.
The update to the song, which was written by Jonathan Singleton, Ben Simonetti and Wyatt Beasley Durrette III, sees CoJo take lead on the first verse, then Zac Brown step in for the second.
Ya gotta admit these two sound fantastic together. In fact, last week fans in Boston got to hear the two country singers sing it together for the first time as Johnson was opening up for Zac and the boys at Fenway Park.
Both versions are great, but, man, am I digging the new one. Cody Johnson's shoutout to East Texas - a slight change from Zac Brown's version, which pays homage to his home state of Georgia - at the beginning is A+.
This version of "Wild Palomino" will be featured on Zac Brown Band's upcoming deluxe version of The Comeback that will be out on September 30th.
