Southern Ground and Atlantic Records have announced the release of Zac Brown Band’s first ever career anthology, “GREATEST HITS SO FAR…” The 14-track collection is available everywhere today.
“GREATEST HITS SO FAR…” collects Zac Brown Band’s momentous run of 11 #1 Country singles, from 2008’s 2x RIAA platinum debut, “Chicken Fried” to 2013’s “Sweet Annie” (see attached tracklisting). Further highlights include chart-topping classics like “As She’s Walking Away (Feat. Alan Jackson),” “Knee Deep (feat. Jimmy Buffett),” and “Goodbye In Her Eyes,” as well as such fan favorites as “Whatever It Is,” “No Hurry,” and “Jump Right In” (from 2012’s GRAMMY® Award-winning UNCAGED).
With countless honors and total sales of over 7 million, Zac Brown Band is one of the most popular and heralded acts of the modern era. In only seven short years, the 3x GRAMMY® Award-winning band has released a truly historic string of indelible hit singles and celebrated albums including 2008’s 3x RIAA platinum certified blockbuster, THE FOUNDATION, 2010’s platinum certified YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE, and 2012’s platinum certified UNCAGED.
Zac Brown Band – whose most recent release is 2013’s acclaimed THE GROHL SESSIONS, VOL. 1 – is also a legendary live outfit, performing for over 1.1 million fans in 2014 alone. The band recently finished up their hugely successful Great American Road Trip Tour, an epic trek that included a sold-out, two-night stand without any support acts at Boston’s Fenway Park – a feat previously accomplished by only four other bands: The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band, and The Police, and a performance at the iconic Wrigley Field. Zac Brown Band also recently hosted and headlined their 4th annual Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, a two day festival, October 11th and 12th in Charleston, SC, organized and curated by Brown himself. The event saw nightly sets from Zac Brown Band alongside a multi-artist bill that included Rodrigo y Gabriela, Gov’t Mule, The Wailers, Blues Traveler, and The Secret Sisters as well as a mouthwatering culinary lineup of some of Southern gourmet’s greatest chefs.
As if that wasn’t enough, Zac Brown Band is also set to be one of the headline performances at tomorrow’s Veterans Day event, The Concert for Valor. The live concert will be held on Washington, D.C.’s National Mall and is designed to bring artists, celebrities and millions of Americans together to honor the courage and sacrifice of veterans, active duty service members and their families. The Concert for Valor will also feature performances from Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna, The Black Keys, Dave Grohl, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Eminem to name a few, as well as onstage hosts including Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Jamie Foxx, John Oliver and Bob Woodruff. HBO will air The Concert for Valor at 7pm ET/4pm PT or visit the live stream at www.theconcertforvalor.com
