Zac Brown Band and Jimmy Buffett Win CMT Performance of the Year Award for ‘Margaritaville’
Glasses up for Zac Brown Band and Jimmy Buffett, as they took home the buckle for the CMT Performance of the Year Award, thanks to their room-filling and Parrothead-approved version of Buffett's classic Americana standard 'Margaritaville,' which they peformed during a March episode of 'CMT Crossroads.'
Buffett, Brown and his band beat out other high profile collabs by the likes of Adele and Darius Rucker, and John Mayer and Keith Urban, to name a precious few! These categories boast some pretty intense competition; we don't know how the fans were able to choose between all these high-profile pairings.
Brown and his crew took the stage to offer a short and sweet (and don't forget bearded) thanks to their partner Buffett, all the Parrotheads and of course ZBB's own fans for "accepting who we are, we love you all." Can we get an "awww?"
Zac Brown Band and Buffett's latest collaboration is the summery 'Knee Deep.' Looks like this is quite the fruitful partnership. Congrats to Zac Brown Band and Buffett on winning the much-coveted buckle for CMT Performance of the Year.
