Zac Brown Band Keep ‘Walking’ to the Top
The Zac Brown Band's 'As She's Walking Away,' featuring Alan Jackson, remains at the top of Billboard's country singles chart for a second week in a row, while the tune also climbs to No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. Brad Paisley's 'Anything Like Me' advances to No. 2, followed by Sugarland's 'Stuck Like Glue' at No. 3 on both charts.
"Zac, that's his song, and he was just kind enough to ask me to come sing on it, a little bit," says Alan, who performed the chart-topping single with the New Artist of the Year winners on last week's CMA Awards. "I'm from Georgia originally, and so is Zac. After he hit, we just kind of met a time or two. He actually played some shows with me on the road. He's just a real guy, real musician and songwriter-singer. That's why I like him, and I think he feels the same way about me. He was just nice enough to ask me to be on that song, because he was a fan, and [it was a] real treat to be on there. Cool song he wrote, and we shot a little video. He's a nice fella."
The band is set to co-headline nine stadium dates with Kenny Chesney beginning in Tampa, Fla., on March 19. First, fans c can check out the guys on November 18 during Coca-Cola Fuels NASCAR Championship Drive, a two-day fan festival, in Miami, Fla. Zac Brown Band will headline a show straight from the beach, which will also be streamed live at NASCAR.com beginning at 8:00 PM ET.
