Country star Zac Brown has loaded up on antibiotics as he prepares to ring in the New Year (12) in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday night (31Dec11) after picking up a severe Christmas cold from his kids.
The singer/songwriter told fans he was dosed up on medication before an intimate end-of-year show in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday night (29Dec11), but insisted the show would go on - as would a scheduled New Year's Eve bash in his native state.
The Chicken Fried hitmaker wasn't taking any chances with his health, however, explaining he had visited Nashville's Vanderbilt University Medical Center for a shot of antibiotics.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
