Zac Brown Band Set a Record With New No. 1 Song ‘Beautiful Drug’
“Beautiful Drug” is ZBB’s 13th song to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making the band the country group (three or more members) with the most career No. 1 singles on that chart. It is also the fourth No. 1 single from Jekyll + Hyde, following “Homegrown,” “Heavy Is the Head” and “Loving You Easy.” When it was released in April, Jekyll + Hyde debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, and at No. 1 on the country albums chart as well.
Zac Brown Band are currently prepping for their 2016 Southern Ground Music & Food Festival — an annual two-day extravaganza that celebrates great country music and great country cooking — which is set to take place in mid-April in Charleston, S.C. After that, the group will kick off a new headlining tour, the Black Out the Sun Tour, on May 19.
“Every night on stage, every time we get together, there’s something new going on … It’s such a thrill that you never know what you’re gonna get when you get up there,” Jimmy De Martini tells The Boot. “… Each night can be different from the last night. It’s definitely a testament to how well these guys can play; everybody in the band is super pro. It’s just fun. It makes it exciting.”
Drake White will serve as direct support on ZBB’s summer tour.
