The Zac Brown Band's album, The Foundation, has been certified platinum for shipments of one million copies. Hit singles from the album include "Chicken Fried," "Whatever It Is" and "Toes." In a blog entry on the band's MySpace page, they wrote, "We want to thank our fans for believing in us, coming to our shows and supporting our music by buying The Foundation. We couldn't have done all this without you! To show our appreciation, our Breaking Southern Ground tour will be pulling out ALL the stops this fall -- we'll have opportunities for fans to win passes to join us for a pre-show feast with our signature dishes and we'll be bringing along the Southern Ground Records Artists to join the party. Look forward to seeing you there." The band's new tour date is scheduled for Friday (Sept. 4) in Duluth, Ga., with a free show at Wild Bill's.
