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.
