Zac Brown Band released their latest album, 'Jekyll and Hyde' earlier this week. The album contains the band's latest #1 country hit, 'Homegrown.' But is this the last we'll hear of ZBB on country radio?

You see, Zac Brown Band has achieved a rare feat. They have been #1 on both the Billboard Country airplay chart and the mainstream rock chart. The band has eleven #1 hits in the country genre. However, a song off their album 'Jekyll and Hyde,' called 'Heavy Is The Head.' which is a rock collaboration with Chris Cornell of the rock band, Soundgarden is also #1 on the rock charts. The only other band to achieve that feat is Bon Jovi.
