The band enjoyed several years of independent success in its native Atlanta, Georgia.

After a series of independent albums, the band broke through in 2008 with the song "Chicken Fried". Originally released through a now-defunct indie label, the song was picked up by Creator/AtlanticRecords partway through its chart run and included on the album ''The Foundation''. Both it and three of the album's other singles ("Toes", "Highway 20 Ride" and "Free") went to Number One, and "Whatever It Is" went to number two. Also, the band won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. That's a good way to start.

A second Atlantic album, ''You Get What You Give'', was released in late 2010. It produced four straight number 1 singles, including the Music/AlanJackson duet "As She's Walking Away", and the number 2 "No Hurry". ''Uncaged'', their third and final Atlantic album, features "The Wind", "Goodbye in Her Eyes" (another #1), "Jump Right In" (co-written by Music/JasonMraz), and "Sweet Annie".

Late in 2013, the band also collaborated with Music/DaveGrohl on a special EP. It produced another single for them in "All Alright", co-written by Music/EricChurch.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: "Chicken Fried" and "Whatever It Is", their first two singles, are noticeably more mainstream than the rest of their catalogue they're less instrument- and melody-driven than their later work. This is because both were written way before their debut album (in fact, "Chicken Fried" was first recorded in 2006 by The Lost Trailers).
** Also, Coy Bowles and Chris Fryar did not play on the first album, which instead had several session musicians.
