The Zac Brown Band reminds us of the most precious things in life in “Chicken Fried,” a song that is simple on the surface but speaks volumes about what truly matters.
With all the unneeded luxuries that we have today, it is very easy for most of us to get caught up in materialistic things.
We have things today like a silver ball of yarn from Tiffany’s, a paper clip worth $185 from Prada, a leather and gold Monopoly set, or anything from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop.
Yes, all of these exist and they are obviously an exaggeration of luxuries today, but that doesn’t discount the fact that many of us are caught up in material things and forget what we should truly value in life.
In this modern society, we often tend to want too many things because we think that it is something essential to us or something we absolutely need to get. Though, when we finally look back in hindsight and evaluate why we have some of the things we have, we end up seeing that they aren’t needed at all.
Zac Brown Band’s Reminder in “Chicken Fried”
