I’ve got a new feel good song this week, titled “Chicken Fried” by the Zac Brown Band. Yes, it’s a very redneck title. Yes, the actual hook is just as redneck, too. But if you can get past those two little words that make up the title and hook, it’s a great song. I love the harmonies, I like the verses and the chorus (which seems to be a rarity for me more and more with new music I find), and I’m not at all ashamed to say I tend to get a little misty-eyed during the verse about the armed forces (my youngest brother Marshall is currently in Iraq, serving as a gunner on an MRAP).
The CMT video has a weird little intro, but give it a second to get to the actual song … if you enjoy country music and harmonies, I think you’ll like it.
