Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson have come a long way since their MMMBop days, and patients at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas got a taste of the band’s new sound. The brothers will release their sixth studio album ANTHEM in June, followed by a worldwide tour. They stopped by the Seacrest Studio during a promotional trip to Dallas.
Hanson performed three songs; including, Thinking ‘Bout Somethin, Where’s the Love, and their new single Get the Girl Back. They participated in an interview between songs, including a list of “Hot Seat” questions from patient Allison Wright.
It’s hard to believe, but the former teen heartthrobs have been a band for nearly 21 years. All three have added “Dad” to their resumes. The youngest brother, Zac, started playing when he was just six years old. “Somebody said, ‘Do you want to sing?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ It was just about a love of making music. Obviously, the attention was fun, and going on stage was fun,” said Zac.
The band got its start in Tulsa, Oklahoma where they currently live with their families. They said it’s a challenge balancing family life with a successful music career; however, their passion to perform still exists. “I think we had the dream and the fire to do it, and we still do,” said Taylor. “We feel totally in awe that we get to make this our job.” When asked if their kids will someday form a group, the trio left the crowd guessing. “Who knows? Music is all around them, and obviously, we all love what we do. So, we support them if they want to do that,” said Zac.
Thanks to Hanson for stopping by the studio and spreading smiles with upbeat tunes.
