"Chicken Fried" is a song by the Zac Brown Band, whose frontman Zac Brown co-wrote it with Wyatt Durrette. The song was first recorded in 2003 for the 2004 album Home Grown. A second version was then released in 2006 by The Lost Trailers, whose version was released as a single but withdrawn from radio. Two years later, the Zac Brown Band re-recorded the song and released it as the first single from their album The Foundation. In late 2008, it became their first chart single, as well as their first number-one hit on the Billboard country charts. The Zac Brown Band version was also featured in the 2008 film Witless Protection, starring Larry the Cable Guy.
