Any attendee at a Zac Brown Band concert knows that “Chicken Fried” is a fan favorite.

 

Apparently, a lot of other people like it, too.

Spotify has identified the swinging Southern anthem as the most popular tailgating song – and it will likely get a lot of play this weekend in Athens.

The streaming service combed through more than 4,000 tailgating playlists and found that “Chicken Fried” appeared the most frequently.

The song, which Brown co-wrote with frequent collaborator Wyatt Durrette, was the first No. 1 single for the Atlanta band and has sold more than 4.5 million copies since 2008.

Since then, ZBB has matured musically, notably on their latest album, “Jekyll + Hyde.” But some fans will always be ready to “raise your glasses for a toast.”
