I haven’t said much about the CMT Video Awards show this year. I got all the press releases and pictures, but I just haven’t really had time to work with them. However, there is one group and one award that I did want to mention. And that is the Best Performance Award, which went to Zac Brown Band and Jimmy Buffett this year.
I’ve been a Zac Brown fan since “Chicken Fried” hit radio. And since then, his music just keeps getting better. I had the pleasure of seeing him in July 2010, at Kingsport, Tenns.’s Fun Fest. And for any of you who have not seen him – let me just tell you that the Zac Brown band puts on an even better show that you can imagine.
I’m also a Jimmy Buffett fan, so I was pleased to see these guys win this award. If you never saw any of the CMT Crossroads performance, you can click here to watch.
Zac put this picture up on his Facebook yesterday (Sunday). The picture was taken after the show at Lambeau Field in green Bay, Wisc., where Zac and the band opened for Kenny Chesney. Here’s what Zac had to say about the picture: “Some special guests stopped by the show last night: Packer’s head coach Mike McCarthy and the Lombardi Trophy!” Now I want to be a celebrity – How many of us get to hold the Lombardi Trophy!
I love that so many of our country stars have facebook and Twitter. They share so much news with us that we didn’t always get on their web site.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. It’s Monday now – I need to head to the office. I’ll talk to you all real soon!
