Early life and career
Hanson was born in Arlington, Virginia, and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the third child of Walker and Diana Hanson. In May 1997, the band released their third studio album (and first on a major label), Middle of Nowhere. The first single, "MMMBop", made it to number one on recording industry sales charts worldwide. Hanson is one of the youngest artists ever to have a number one single (UK & US charts), second only to Michael Jackson.
After releasing three albums through the record company Island Def Jam (formerly Mercury Records), the band parted ways with the label in 2003 due to irreconcilable differences and formed their own independent label, 3CG Records.
He is the second youngest person ever to be nominated for a Grammy award at age 12 (second to Michael Jackson). He holds the title of youngest songwriter nominated for a Grammy (same year).
In August 2000, Zac Hanson was introduced to Kate Tucker. The two began dating in 2001 and their relationship continued for four years before Hanson proposed in February 2005. They were married on June 3, 2006, in a private ceremony held at Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. In the July 27, 2007 issue of People magazine, Hanson and Tucker stated that they planned to "wait a while" before having children. In November 2007, they announced that they would be expecting their first child in May 2008.
In People magazine, Hanson said of impending fatherhood, "I can't wait to meet this person....It will be fun to see five little ones grow up together. I know watching them will inspire a lot of music." The couple's son John Ira Shepherd Hanson ("Shepherd") was born on May 27, 2008 in Tulsa.
On July 2, 2010 in People magazine, Hanson and his wife Kate announced that they are expecting their second child, and the rocker couldn’t be more thrilled, "I am so excited about the new addition to our growing family and for the stories and inspiration this person will bring to the world." In October 2010 during a radio interview, Zac stated that his wife (Kate Hanson) are expecting the arrival of their 2nd child in December 2010. Daughter Junia Rosa Ruth was born on December 15, 2010.
