Zac Brown Band goes to number one

Thursday, August 12, 2010 – Zac Brown Band moved to the top of the Billboard Country Songs Chart for the week ending Aug. 21 with Free, which took over from Jerrod Niemann's Lover, Lover. On the album chart, Lady Antebellum was predictably number one again with "Need You Now."

ZBB's Free had been second last week, a position now held by Keith Urban's I'm In, which was up one. Blake Shelton's title track of his new EP, All About Tonight, was up two to third, followed by Niemann. Lee Brice was up one to fifth with Love Like Crazy.

Sugarland's new single, Stuck Like Glue, jumped from 22 to 17. George Strait was at 21 with The Breath You Take, up 3. Sure to move up fast is Taylor Swift, whose new single Mine debuted at 26. Rascal Flatts jumped from 34 to 27 with Why Wait.

On the album chart, the top nine albums remained the second. ZBB was second with "The Foundation," Niemann third with "Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury," Miranda Lambert fourth with "Revolution" and Carrie Underwood fifth with "Play On."

Keith Urban moved from 23 to 20 with "Defying Gravity." Josh Turner's "Haywire" stood at 21, up 4. Kenny Chesney's "Greatest Hits II' jumped from 27 to 22. Strait jumped from 36 to 28 with "Twang."

On the overall top 200, Lady A was 9th, ZBB 15th, Niemann 22nd, Lambert 23rd and Underwood 38th.

That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop ...
CD review - Uncaged Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" album opens with Jump Right In, which finds singer/bandleader Brown admonishing, "Let the music pull you in," which might just be Brown's motto. He's all about forgetting the cares of the day and giving in wholeheartedly to the magnetic attraction of good music. Although Brown writes, sings and plays well throughout, there are nevertheless few truly standout tracks or unexpected surprises on "Uncaged." With that said, ...
