Zac Brown has his hands in a little bit of everything. There’s his music, of course, but he’s also building a camp for children, and owns businesses that make everything from high-end hunting knives to fine wine. Now he’s adding a new vocation to his repertoire: voiceover narrator.

This weekend (9/2) the Zac Brown Band frontman will narrate On a Mission: Atlanta Rising, a profile on NBC of Atlanta Falcons owner and Home Depot co-founder Arthur Blank. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the one-hour special will examine Blank’s personal and professional life from his childhood through the present day.

“It was such an honor when I was asked to be a part of this project,” Zac tells the newspaper, noting that he became friendly with the businessman through various philanthropic efforts in Georgia. “Arthur is a great man doing so many great things. He has a huge heart and strives to help communities and people grow to reach their full potential.”

Blank is among the supporters of Zac’s Camp Southern Ground, whose campus is just south of Atlanta. Learn more about the facility here. Stay up to date on all things Zac Brown Band here. Look for On A Mission: Atlanta Rising Saturday (9/2) at 2pm ET on NBC.
