    Here's my small world story...

    1) The much-spoken-of bass player in the video was one of the people who pushed me the hardest to go to Belmont. Once upon a time we played many-a gig together.

    2) The first thing I played in public once I arrived at Belmont was "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" with a fiddle player named Jenifer Wrinkle who later became one of my roommates.

    3) Jenifer Wrinkle plays fiddle for Martina McBride now. I can't find a video on YouTube right now (if I find it later, I'll post it) but it's my understanding that Jenifer played at the CMAs on Wednesday as well. (That was the scuttlebutt from my Belmont classmates on facebook, anyway.)

    4) Clearly, I'm neither the most talented nor the most famous person I know...:blush:

    Thanks for posting that Hop! I've been stuck on Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown for two days now. :blush:

    For a Georgia boy, he can sure sing fast!

    Zac Brown Band Earns Three Grammy Nominations!!
    Zac Brown Band earned three GRAMMY nominations for Best New Artist, Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Country Album.

    Earlier this year, Zac Brown Band captured two fan-voted honors taking home the "Top New Vocal Group" Award at the Academy of Country Music Awards and the "USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year" at the CMT Awards for their first single "Chicken Fried." They also received four Country Music Association and three American Music Award nominations in 2009.

    Zac Brown Band's platinum-certified, major label debut 'The Foundation' - a mainstay on The Billboard 200 since November 2008 - is out now on Atlantic Records.

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will air live from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010 on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT. :clap:

    Zac Brown Band is Awesome! We love him up here in K.C.! They were just in concert here with awesome reviews in the newspaper. What a great band, we feel like they are a "rockin it ol' school type of group!" love, love, love them. My friends know when I'm heading to the beach because I leave a voicemail that says the line........Toes in the sand, life is good today!

    The "Eat and Greet" is a cool idea. Fans literally get to sit down and have a meal with them and visit. The band and their crew are truly a very down to earth group of folks.
