After 31 weeks on the charts, Zac Brown Band's RIAA gold-certified debut 'The Foundation' (Atlantic Records) has hit a new high this week at #12 on The Billboard 200.

The chart spike came following the band's fan-voted win at the CMT Awards last week, where their #1 Platinum single "Chicken Fried" was crowned USA Weekend's Breakthrough Video of the Year. The Zac Brown Band was also awarded many kind words for their performances at both CMA Fest and Bonnaroo earlier this month:

"...when Brown crooned lyrics like "Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand/ Life is good today," he pretty much nailed the sentiment of everyone at the fest for day one." - Rolling Stone

"Brown delivered a set that alternated between light as air sing-a-longs and extended major key guitar-fiddle-keyboard jams." -
