The first-ever career-spanning collection of Zac Brown Band‘s hit singles is officially being released today (November 10th). Greatest Hits So Far… is a 14-track collection that spotlights 11 of the Georgia group’s chart-topping country singles, from their first, 2008’s “Chicken Fried,” to their most recent, “Sweet Annie.”
“It was six and a half years ago that we started on the radio, and it’s amazing that we had 11 Number One songs [since then]. That’s why we put out Greatest Hits… So Far,” Brown tells Rolling Stone Country. “It’s awesome that it can come out, and it’s a good placeholder until we put out a big record next year.”
Among the tracks on the greatest hits collection is “Free,” which hit Number One in 2010 and was nominated for two Grammys. A live performance of the tune captured on video makes its exclusive online premiere at Rolling Stone Country. (Watch above.) Distinguished by a cool (and lengthy) fiddle intro from the band’s Jimmy De Martini, the performance was filmed by AXS-TV at the group’s Southern Ground Music and Food Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, last month.
On Tuesday, November 11th, Zac Bown Band will be among the performers at the first-ever Concert for Valor, on the Mall in Washington D.C. The three-hour show in commemoration of Veteran’s Day, will also feature Bruce Springsteen and Rihanna, among several others, and will broadcast live on HBO.
