Zac Brown Band musician Coy Bowles is helping to instil key life principles into young kids by writing a new children's book.
The country star previously launched himself as an author in 2012 with the release of Amy Giggles: Laugh Out Loud, an anti-bullying story to promote self-empowerment and build confidence within youngsters.
Now he is building up his writing resume with a second publication, Will Powers: Where There's a Will, There's a Way, which aims to teach youths about the value of hard work and dedication - lessons he learned from his mum and dad.
"My parents instilled in me a foundation of confidence and hard work that I think is the main reason I've been successful," Bowles explained. "If there is anything that I would like to give back, it is helping young people to find a sense of self through tenacity and perseverance."

"Please be aware the cancellation has nothing to do with our amazing sponsors. They were a delight to work with and this is not a reflection of the work and dedication they put into the festival. Again this is something outside of our control."

'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' is Number 1 in the UK and the States at the same time, only the ninth album this decade to do so.
Florence Welch may be recovering from a broken foot, but she’s got even more good news to make her feel better, as the third Florence + The Machine album has entered the American charts at Number One, her first record to reach the summit in the States.
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful sold 137,000 copies in its first week on sale to debut at the top spot in the Billboard 200 albums chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As a result, Florence is one of the few artists who have managed to top the American and British albums charts at the same time – the ninth act to do so in the 2010s and the first since Ed Sheeran’s X last year.

Their third album 'Wilder Mind' stormed to the top of the charts with nearly a quarter of a million sales in its first week.
As was widely expected, folk-turned-rock group Mumford & Sons have raced to the top of the American Billboard charts, selling nearly 150% more than its nearest rival in the process. Wilder Mind, their third album, sold 249,000 copies in its first week to claim the Number 1 spot, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The figure isn’t anywhere near as large as the first week sales for their last record Babel, which shifted a whopping 600,000 units back in 2012, and remains the biggest sales week for a guitar album this decade.

Country Stars The Zac Brown Band Are Moving Into The Fashion Industry By Launching Their Own Collection Of Guitar Pick Pendants.
The jewellery line was designed in collaboration with bosses at men's accessories and pocket knife firm William Henry, and sales of each of the three hand-engraved metal picks will benefit Camp Southern Ground, the group's charity summer camp in Georgia.
The pendants don't come cheap - the sterling silver charm with gold inlay features a sterling and onyx chain for $1,499 (£937), while another silver pick with an antique sterling silver chain is priced at $299 (£187) and a bronze charm with deerskin cord retails at $199 (£124).
It's the second venture the Zac Brown Band have embarked upon with William Henry designers - they previously teamed up to make guitar-inspired pocket knives.
