For the second time in three years, Coy Bowles (B.S. ’04) is a Grammy winner with the Zac Brown Band. Bowles, who plays guitar, piano and organ, took to the stage Sunday night with his bandmates to accept the award for Best Country Album for “Uncaged.” In 2010, they won the Grammy for Best New Artist.
Bowles, who also fronts Coy Bowles and the Fellowship, remembers his days at Georgia State fondly. In fact, Bowles began as a biology major, but quickly decided to follow his calling towards music.
“[Georgia State] was an amazing experience,” Bowles told GSU Magazine after his first Grammy win (read story here.) “It was one of the best experiences in my life, being around horn players and playing in a big band, writing and arranging music.”
Congratulations to Zac, Coy and the rest of the band! Watch their first Grammy acceptance speech here.
