Zac Brown is just one of many country artists that is mourning the loss of rock icon Tom Petty.  Zac wrote on Facebook, ”Tom was one of the most iconic writers and performers of all time. The band and I play his songs in our sets often as does nearly every other artist that we know. We often listen to a playlist of only his songs and are always astounded as we remember that he wrote that song too. He was the epitome of cool. He will be missed terribly by his fans and we grieve for his family and friends.”  Petty died from cardiac arrest on Monday.
