8 Years Ago: Zac Brown Band And Jimmy Buffett Hit #1 With “Knee Deep”
You can always count on the Zac Brown Band for an occasional trip to a tropical beach, far away from your work and worry. That's exactly what's so warming about their duet with Jimmy Buffett, "Knee Deep".
Released in May of 2011, it reached the #1 spot on the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts by August 1st.
It was ZBB's eight consecutive Mediabase #1 single to start their career and the second #1 hit on the country charts for Jimmy Buffett, who first accomplished that feat with 2003's "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere", a song with the great Alan Jackson. Buffett would also never pass up a beach song!
Zac Brown wrote the song with fellow songwriter Wyatt Durrette, band member Coy Bowles and Jeffrey Steele.
"Knee Deep" is one of those songs that no matter how many times I've heard it, I never get tired of it. The song always seems to put me in a good mood and is easy to sing along to. In fact, I'm craving a beach vacation as I write this...
