Zac Brown Band with Leon Russell

Posted by Richard on January 27, 2011

Good morning! You look a little sleepy. Are you moving a bit slowly this morning? Well, I've got just the cure. Get yourself a good cup of coffee, turn up the volume as much as you dare, and check this out: a medley of "America the Beautiful," Leon Russell's "Dixie Lullaby," and "Chicken Fried" from the 2010 Grammy Awards show. Guaranteed to get your blood pumping.

I've been getting back into country music lately, and the Zac Brown Band is definitely one of the reasons. If they're new to you, check out the original full-length video of "Chicken Fried" (sorry, embedding is disabled; you'll have to hit that link to YouTube).

Then check out some of their other stuff, like "Toes" — one of the coolest songs and funniest videos I've heard and seen in a long time. Catchy melody and great lyrics. It starts like this:

I've got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today, life is good today

And the twist on that verse at the end is just perfect. Enjoy!

Then, for a serious change of pace — and only if you don't mind getting a little verklempt — watch "Highway 20 Ride." And read the two highest-rated comments. If that doesn't move you, you have a heart of stone.
