4/6: Sugarland and Zac Brown Band take home ACM awards

Georgians Sugarland and the Zac Brown Brand took home two of the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night.

Atlanta’s own Sugarland, whose current single “It Happens” just became the duo’s 10th top 10 hit on the country charts, broke the eight-year streak in the Best Vocal Duo category held by Brooks & Dunn. Lead singer Jennifer Nettles also won a “Milestones” award.

Meanwhile, North Georgia’s own Zac Brown Band (”Chicken Fried”) took home Best New Duo or Vocal Group. Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town, both with members from Georgia, won the previous two years.

Sugarland is going to celebrate at home Friday at the Gwinnett Arena.

And Zac Brown will be at Chastain Park for a Memorial Day shindig.

I was honored to attend a Brooks & Dunn concert in Charlotte, NC in 2006 with Sugarland as the opening performance. I absolutely fell in love with them! My favorite song is “Stay” which hits the heart and soul.

I wrote a song “Gone” about a lady who lost her love. It too is a heart and soul song. Jennifer would be the one to sing it.

She has a natural voice and her talent is amazing! Kristian places a smile on the duo! He is also one of the most talented fellows I’ve heard and seen!
