Zac grew up in LaGrange, AL, with his four sisters, mother and father. His family is full of talented musicians, singers and songwriters, who are all active in the music industry. Zac's father was one of the original Hacker Brothers.
At the age of eight, Zac let his fingers do the walking on his first guitar. Not long after, Zac played with musician Gary Nichols, and both were involved with the first FAME Tuesday Music Club. In only two years, Zac has had the privilege to write with well-known singer and songwriters such as Robert Byrne (Two Dozen Roses, What I'd Say), Russell Smith (Third Rate Romance, Keep It Between The Lines), and Dave Gibson (Ships That Don't Come In, Queen of Memphis).
