When a band's debut hit is as recognizable and catchy as Zac Brown Band 's "Chicken Fried," it's easy for the band members to think they'll be defined by that song for the rest of their career.  Zac Brown Band drummer Chris Fryar admits they came to terms with being known as the "Chicken Fried" guys early on.

He tells Metropulse.com , "As the shows grew in size and the audiences got bigger and we put out You Get What You Give , and ‘Colder Weather’ seems to get just as many cheers as anything else on the set list."

For those who aren't as familiar with Zac Brown Band, "Chicken Fried" is still the group's defining song though.

"If that’s what we’re known for to the uneducated, that’s fine," says Chris. "Most people look at Jimmy Buffett and think, oh, it’s the ‘Margaritaville’ guy, and there’s a whole lot more to Jimmy Buffett than that.  There’s always going to be one song that people associate somebody with."

Zac Brown Band will be performing "Chicken Fried" along with their many other #1 hits Friday night in Roanoke, VA.
