Zac Brown Band Hit No. 1 With ‘Sweet Annie’
The Zac Brown Band have achieved a new career milestone. The Georgia-based group have earned their 10th No. 1 hit with their latest single, ‘Sweet Annie.’
The song is the fourth single from their platinum-selling 2012 album, ‘Uncaged.’ Their string of hits began in 2008 with their debut single, ‘Chicken Fried,’ from their freshman ‘The Foundation’ CD.
According to Billboard magazine, Blake Shelton is the only country artist to achieve more chart-topping hits in the same amount of time, with 11. They now pass Jason Aldean, who has had nine No. 1 songs in the same time period, and Lady Antebellum, with seven.
The group, who won a Grammy last year for Best Country Album for ‘Uncaged,’ released their new EP, ‘The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1,’ in December, and hint there might be more collaborating with the lead singer from the Foo Fighters.
“Vol. 1 is literally everything we recorded, but we liked the idea of adding to this at some point,” band member Clay Cook says. “We don’t know what the future holds, but we like the idea, and Dave loves the idea of making more music, too. It’s as open-ended to us as it is to you, but Dave was cool with calling it Vol. 1. So maybe Vol. 2 comes in 30 years; we don’t know. But we love the idea of the intention to do more, that’s for sure.”
The Zac Brown Band will perform along with Jake Owen for the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII. The two country acts will sing on a cruise ship docked at the Hudson River, as part of Bud Light Hotel Concert. Grohl will join the Zac Brown Band for their performance.
