As 99.5 WYCD gets ready for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm]‘s Goin’ Coastal Tour to make its way into Downtown Detroit, I would like to get you in the mood with the Top 10 videos from the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm]. We are lucky here in Detroit as [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown[/lastfm] is only joining Kenny on his stadium stops during the tour, So we get to have a special experience that only a few cities in the country get!Let’s get it started with the song that introduced us to the [mp3com-artist]Zac Brown Band[/mp3com-artist], “Chicken Fried.” This song was nominated for two CMA’s in 2009 and went Platinum two times!
Next, off the very successful Foundation, “Highway 20 Ride.” This song peaked at #1 on the Country Charts and was the band’s 3rd #1 record.
Remember when the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm] played the Downtown Hoedown in 2009? They were joined on stage by a very special guest, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Rock[/lastfm]!
The current hit, which is Zac Brown Band’s 7th #1 record,“Knee Deep” was recorded in Mexico and sorta continues the journey of Floaty Boatwood and his care-free lifestyle. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jimmy Buffet[/lastfm] is on the song as well as the song is inspired by his style of music.
I’ve had the awesome experience of attending a concert at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre and it is so cool to watch a concert that is set in the open air of the Red Rocks of Colorado! [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown[/lastfm] says that one of his most favorite songs that they have written is “Colder Weather.” Their performance is awesome in this video from Red Rocks in September of 2010.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm] performs the National Anthem at the 2011 NFC Divisional Playoffs game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers.
Although this next one didn’t make it to the #1 spot on the charts, “Whatever It Is” did come in 2nd and was highly requested here at WYCD and was also the choice of many newlyweds when the song came out in January 2009.
It must of been really cool for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm] to duet with country music legend [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alan Jackson[/lastfm] on “As She’s Walking Away.” The song is the first release from the band’s album You Get What You Give, which was released on September 21, 2010.
This is my absolute FAVORITE song [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm] does live. They have an awesome live version of “Free” where they break into the song “Into The Mystic.” I love this version as it is one of my top song in my iPod rotation.
Last but certainly not least, probably [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm]’s most popular song, “Toes.” This video has over 7 million hits on YouTube and this song reached #1 on the US Country Charts. In this video we are introduced to Floaty Boatwood and his crazy journey from Georgia to Mexico.
