The big news for Nirvana this week is the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And the big news for Georgia's Zac Brown Band is the release of The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1, an album recorded with and produced by Dave Grohl, famously of Foo Fighters and, before Kurt Cobain's suicide, Nirvana.

Southern Ground, Zac Brown's record label, released the four-song EP last week. Recorded at Southern Ground's Nashville studio, the tracks maintain Zac Brown Band's recognizable country-rock fusion, but everything's slightly amped up from past recordings thanks to Grohl's production. "Dave is a musical genius," says Brown. "It's been amazing to play with him on stage and get to spend time working with him in the studio. We are excited for fans to hear the music we've been able to create together."

Bassist Oteil Burbridge (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Allman Brothers Band) sat in on the sessions, and Grohl contributed his whomping drumming to a few tracks as well.

Zac Brown Band bassist and backing vocalist John Driskell Hopkins performs a solo show at Terminal West this Friday, December 20.
