Zac Hanson Says Parents Didn’t Force Him Into Show Biz

TULSA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Many child stars claim their parents forced them into the business but Zac Hanson, the youngest member of brother band Hanson, says he knew music was his true calling even when he was 6 years-old.

Hanson, who rose to fame back in 1996 at the age eleven with teen brothers Taylor and Isaac, admits people find it hard to believe that someone so young would know so much about the music business.

Says Hanson: “I think I would’ve had a hard time believing an 11 year-old sat down and wrote all the songs but we seriously love what we do.”

He says he doesn’t really know how the boys managed to stay grounded with all the early success but thinks it was probably because the young trio wasn’t “pressured by outside forces” and lived in Oklahoma – far away from L.A.

The band is currently working on a new album and their documentary Strong Enough To Break, which chronicles the obstacles the boys faced while trying to form their own label, premieres at the 10th Annual Hollywood Film Festival next Wednesday (Oct. 18).
