Zac Brown Band is 2019 CMT Group Video of the Year

“…This award is for all of you out there, my band and all the outsiders that waded through everyone’s doubt. For all you young artists, have courage to stand up against the machine, be yourself, work hard and one day you can stand up here and tell all the haters to f— off. “

Zac Brown Band takes a whole different direction with “Someone I Used to Know.” Co-written by pop sensation Shawn Mendez, the song and its compelling music video tackles about Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in a way that has never been tackled in the country genre before.

The almost upbeat and happy beat in the background helps the underlying message to what the song and its corresponding music video are really all about.

Zac Brown, frontman of the band talks about the song as a ‘touch point,’ some time at the end of the music video. It tells the narrative of sharing the pain that someone is feeling and that people don’t need to go through it alone. At some point, he shares that

“pain and depression don’t discriminate; this song is me facing that part of myself of where I want to go and not where I’ve been.”

Here’s the moving music video for it. Fair warning, the first few moments of the music video is explicit.
