zac brown band knee deep cmt awards Zac Brown Band brings sun and surf to CMT Music Awards with 'Knee Deep'For the 2011 CMT Music Awards, the Zac Brown Band took to the stage (complete with sand, sun and surf) to perform their new single “Knee Deep.” It was definitely a fun performance and quite a bit different from their hits “Chicken Fried” and “As She’s Walking Away.” “Knee Deep” is their second single off their second studio album, “You Get What You Give.”

Unfortunately, Jimmy Buffet could not grace the stage with the Zac Brown Band. Buffet collaborated with the band on the radio version of the song, but was not at the CMT Awards Wednesday night (June 8).

The Zac Brown Band was up for two awards for their “Colder Weather” video – Video of the Year and Group Video of the Year, but they did not take home either award. “Colder Weather” was the first single off their newest album.

We’ll post video just as soon as we have it. For now, here’s the audio of the song.
