As the year wraps up, The Zac Brown Band wraps up a very successful year. They have a brand new album recently out, a hit single with Alan Jackson, their first CMA nomination for Entertainer of the Year, just to name a few of their recent successes and reasons why CMT is honoring them in their first ever Artists of the Year. Zac is thrilled to be among such great company in the nominations, “That’s pretty amazing. A lot of these folks at the level they’re on and to think that we are on the same level with a lot of them is pretty amazing, you know? And I look forward to chatting with them. Some of them I’ve talked to and gotten to know a little bit, and some of them I haven’t, and I’m looking forward to at least making the acquaintances there.” Along with the Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, and Lady Antebellum will be honored in a 90 minute special CMT’s Artists of the Year on December 3, at 8pm EST on CMT.
