Zac Brown Says He's Grateful to Be Spending Extra Time with His 5 Kids: 'Nothing More Important'

"I put my kids first always, and I put them first when I'm making my schedule, but it's kind of erratic. So to be home and just be really super present and consistent with my kids has been great for them and it's been great for me," he says.

In between time spent writing music in his at-home studio, Brown's days with the kids on his sprawling property outside Atlanta have been filled with playing games, scavenger hunts, riding his Land Cruiser through the field and "tromps through the woods."

On co-parenting with Shelly, from whom he split in 2018 after 12 years of marriage, "I couldn't have a more amazing mom for them," says Brown. "They're our first priority and they've got steadiness and love from both sides. Our kids are a product of all the love and time we give them."

And Brown says he plans to continue to relish in those extra moments.

"I feel the best when I've gotten them to bed and that all five of them have had the best day I could provide for them," he says.

"Maybe they learned something or maybe they feel a little closer as a unit together," Brown continues. "When they're happy and secure, there's nothing more important than that."
