Fans voted Zac Brown Band as the winner for Group Video of the Year at last night’s CMT Music Awards. And Zac made sure his acceptance speech would be one of the most talked about moments.
Although the video below is censored, the version that made TV was not.

Many viewers were none too thrilled about the F bomb.
So completely unnecessary! Just accept the award, say thank you and move on. Not classy at all.☹️

Exactly… sad to see what’s happening with him and this band. I think he’s got his priorities messed up now. And him becoming a pompous ass is not going to get me to buy tickets to his shows. I miss the zac brown band of 2009. I’ve already cancelled my zamily. Wasn’t worth it.

But others were totally into the speech and showed support.
I believe the haters are the academy’s that don’t nominate him. He was finally nominated for a fan voted award and won. So that proves the the academies that he is talented and liked. And as he said eff them. I loved it. I’m proud of him.
