[singlepic id=295 w=320 h=240 float=left]With a Grammy Award win, several number one hits and the recent announcement of a second album, for the Zac Brown Band, 2010 is shaping up as quite nicely. But it’s not their upcoming album causing the buzz this week. Their debut studio album, “The Foundation” just reeled in another major milestone for the band. The album’s fifth radio release, “Free”, not only sailed its way up the country charts to take top spot, it helps the band set the record for the most number one hits from a debut album. Not a bad way to start off the week.
For Chicago fans, the Zac Brown Band’s success couldn’t come at a better time. On Thursday, the band will anchor their Southern Ground Tour on Chicago’s lakefront for a rare Northerly Island performance. It’s not that the Zac Brown Band is a stranger to Chicago, it’s a rarity that a country music group will grace the picturesque lakefront pavilion. Something Chicago country fans, until now, didn’t typically get to enjoy. Thus, Thursday’s concerts should be a win-win for the Zac Brown Band and fans alike.
