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 Atlantic Records 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.

** Supposedly, there's a remix of "Beautiful Drug" that lessens the EDM elements.
** "Castaway" has an {{a cappella}} cold open and some minor instrumental polish.

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. ''Jekyll + Hyde'' followed in 2015, producing the country hits "Homegrown" and "Loving You Easy", and a #1 Mainstream Rock hit in "Heavy Is the Head" with Music/ChrisCornell. The latter has made them only the second act after Music/BonJovi to top both the country and rock charts.

* UncommonTime: "Heavy Is the Head" isn't entirely in 4/4; the chorus is in 6/8, there are measures of 2/4 and 3/4 sprinkled throughout, and most of the ending is in 7/8. Fittingly, the song features Music/ChrisCornell, better known for being in [[Music/{{Soundgarden}} another band]] that used many odd time signatures.
