The Zac Brown Band

Yes! A fiddle! The Zac Brown Band won the Grammy for Best New Artist, and for good reason. Aided by music great Leon Russell, the Atlanta country group proved that Southerners still know how to rock. With background images of the American flag and cold beer mugs, their performance of "Chicken Fried" seems like a patriotic version of Jamie Foxx's "Blame It." It's times like these that I wish I still had a pickup truck.
