‘Free’ was the fifth and final single from Zac Brown Band’s 2008 album, The Foundation. It debuted on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart on this day in 2010 and went to #1 later that year. At this time, ZBB already had a huge fanbase which continued to grow with the release of this song.

The song was penned by Zac Brown after climbing Mt. Warning in Australia in 2006. ‘Free’ was nominated for Top Country Performance By A Group Or Duo and Best Country Song at the 2011 Grammy’s.

ZBB is coming to Jersey Country for two back to back shows at Citi Field! We will see you there on July 28th and 29th. Stay tuned to Thunder106 for all of your favorite throwback songs as well as the hottest cutting edge country!
