Daily Digital Download: Zac Brown Band ‘Where The Boat Leaves From’
There is no “official” video for this song but I found the lyric video to share with you. I chose this song for my daily download today because I can’t wait for our “Get Closer to the Ocean” cruise in November! I hope you’re coming with us. You can get all the details in our event section.
This song is off of The Foundation album by the Zac Brown Band, It was released on November 18, 2008. Originally slated for release on the Home Grown label and Big Picture Records, the album is distributed by Atlantic Nashville in association with those two labels. The financing for the album was provided by Atlanta, GA entrepreneur Braden Copeland through his investment company Braden Copeland Ventures, LLC. On December 2, 2009, the album was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Country Album and also earned the band the Grammy Award for Best New Artist on January 31.
The album includes five singles, starting with “Chicken Fried,” which the band had previously recorded on its 2005 self-released album Home Grown. One year later, The Lost Trailers released this song as a single on BNA Records, but the label withdrew the single after Brown changed his mind about licensing the song. The Zac Brown Band’s rendition became a Number One country hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in December 2008.
Four further singles were released from the album — “Whatever It Is,” “Toes,” “Highway 20 Ride” and “Free” — the latter three of which were also Number One hits. Additionally, “A Different Kind of Fine” also entered the chart as an album cut from unsolicited airplay, where it reached number 55.
