Listen to Zac Brown Band on iHeartRadio

Zac Brown Band scored their ninth number-one single this week with “Goodbye In Her Eyes,” which is atop the MediaBase chart.

The band will perform the national anthem tonight (Monday) at the BCS National Championship Game. Then they'll headline three shows before heading to Los Angeles for next month's Grammy Awards, where Uncaged is up for Best Country Album.

So where does frontman Zac Brown get the savvy to handle such a tight business schedule? He says a solid work ethic runs in the family.

“I probably get it from my dad. He’s a great business man, and I think I learned a lot of my business ethics and principles from him. I was born a hustler. When I was selling candy out of my backpack in elementary school, I was selling Blow Pops and Jolly Rancher sticks. That’s just always been my, ya’ know, I’ve always been working.”
