Zack King and his band have been performing their unique brand of Texas Rock in the DFW Metroplex, the state of Texas and across the U.S. for almost 10 years. In that time they have played with some of the most illustrious superstars in rock and country music. They kicked off their career opening for legendary singer/songwriter Leon Russell and have since performed with the likes of Alabama, Chris Cagle, Bret Michaels, Randy Travis, Kevin Fowler, Stone Temple Pilots,Tesla and many more.
“...the best band we've had open on the tour so far." (Dave Eisenhower - Bon Jovi Front of House Sound Engineer)
A true highlight came when Zack released his Up From Here album last year and debuted the first single "Everything's Bigger" when the band opened for Bon Jovi in front of 20,000 fans at Dallas’ American Airlines Center. Following the concert the NHL's Dallas Stars picked up two of the band’s singles, “Meet Your Maker” & “Everything’s Bigger” to use during their games and in their 2011 & 2012 television/radio ad campaigns.
In early 2012 the band released their latest single “I Do” along with a “making of” video that takes the viewer into the studio with them as they create and record the song.
As 2012 winds down the band finds themselves with a series of exciting shows to close out the year and some very big plans for 2013! Join them on their journey and learn more at www.zackking.com.
