By Ken Stanford Staff
A musical group with strong ties to the Gainesville area and the Worship Leader at Free Chapel in Gainesville are among this year's Grammy winners.
The Zac Brown Band picked up its third Grammy. The country music group won this year's award for Best Country Album for "Uncaged." The band includes John Driskell, who was raised in Gainesville. Brown is a Cumming native, who grew up in Dahlonega, and who founded the band in 2002.
Meanwhile, Micah Massey, Worship Leader at Free Chapel, won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for "Your Presence Is Heaven, and tied for top honors in that category with Matt Redman who won for "10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)."
This year's awards ceremony was held Sunday in Los Angeles.
