Zac Brown Band Southern Ground 2016

The earliest iteration of the Zac Brown Band — frontman Zac Brown, a drummer and a bassist — formed in Atlanta, Ga., in the early 2000s. Brown founded his own label, Southern Ground (then Home Grown), in 2003, and the band, to which Brown continued to add members, released two albums independently (‘Far From Einstyne’ in 2004 and ‘Home Grown’ in 2005). The Zac Brown Band released their debut single, “Chicken Fried,” and their major-label debut album, ‘The Foundation’, in 2008; the record was released on Brown’s label in partnership with Atlantic Records and Bigger Picture Music Group. “Chicken Fried” became the first of three songs from the project, also including “Toes” and “Highway 20 Ride,” to hit No. 1. The group has since released three studio albums — ‘You Get What You Give’, ‘Uncaged’ and ‘Jekyll + Hyde’ — all of which went to the top of the country charts. While their music is largely considered country, the ZBB aren’t afraid to push genre boundaries: “Heavy Is the Head” from ‘Jekyll + Hyde’ earned them a No. 1 song in the rock world, and in 2013, they released an EP, ‘The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1′, with Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl.

Zac Brown Says ‘Jekyll + Hyde’ Inspired Him to Create More Diverse Songs

The Zac Brown Band's fourth studio album, Jekyll + Hyde, debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts, but the record was decidedly more rock- and electronic-focused than the group's previous efforts. Prior to the project's release in April of 2015, Brown described the new music as going "deeper down the rabbit hole" -- and it sounds like he and his bandmates plan to continue on that journey.

Story Behind the Song: Zac Brown Band, ‘Chicken Fried’

Zac Brown and Wyatt Durrette co-wrote "Chicken Fried" in the early 2000s. The Zac Brown Band first recorded the song in 2003, then re-recorded it later in the decade and released it as the first single off of their album The Foundation in 2008. That year, the tune earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and a Top 20 spot on the Hot 100 (No. 20). It has since been certified quadruple platinum.
