Zac Brown Band Wins USA Weekend Breakthrough Video Of The Year
Last night, the fans spoke and crowned the Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried" as CMT's winner of the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year. Directed by actor/director Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek, Capote, Traffic), "Chicken Fried" was the band's first music video and went on to become a #1 platinum single.
"We want to thank our fans because without you supporting us and buying our album, we wouldn't have a life in music," expressed Zac Brown as the band accepted the award.
This award marks the second fan-voted win for the Zac Brown Band this year after taking home the Top New Vocal Group honor at the Academy of Country Music Awards in April.
Zac Brown Band's gold-certified, major label debut 'The Foundation' is out now on Atlantic Records.
