Authentic vocals, authentic music, and an authentic band!! Just one of the comments made as someone watched the ZBB tribute band “chicken fried”. This is as close to the real deal as one can get as a Zac Brown fan.
Zac Brown Band hails from Atlanta, Georgia and have taken the country and non country music community by storm. The band has released four studio albums, two live albums, one greatest hits album and two EP’s. They have charted almost twenty singles on Billboard and have had numerous number one hits. ZBB have also won a handful of Grammys to go along with countless other awards and achievements. They have earned the reputation as a ‘must see live’ band and that would explain why their concerts are sold out tour after tour.
Elton Lammie, an award winning vocalist, is the lead singer for the chicken fried tribute show. In his own live performances, he would receive numerous comments on how he resembled and sounded like Zac Brown. Many of Elton’s fans would wait each night for him to break into a few ZBB songs. This led to the formation of ‘chicken fried’. Elton says,”The ZBB is now a band that makes $500,000+ per show, if people want to hear the music and be inspired from the songs of Zac Brown and can’t afford that then we will give them an alternative.”
Chicken Fried includes all the great songs and radio hits of ZBB in their show as well as some of the unexpected songs that Zac throws in their live concerts. “A Zac Brown show can include anything from Metallica to Ray Lamontagne so we do the same thing, people love the diversity”
