It's night time in Nashville right now, but Zac Brown Band brought out the sun and surf for a live performance of their new single, 'Knee Deep,' at the 2011 CMT Music Awards.

Unfortunately, Jimmy Buffett, who collaborated with ZBB on the radio version of the track, didn't make an appearance onstage. Still, Brown sported a pair of stylish sunglasses and sang his heart out with his band, who were placed knee deep in fake waves. Behind them on the elaborate stage set sat a life-size ark that would put even Noah to shame.

Zac Brown Band are nominated for the biggest award of the evening, Video of the Year, for their last hit single, 'Colder Weather.' They are also nominated for Group Video of the Year for the same song.
