If you’ve been keeping up with Zach Bryan at all, you know that this dude is the real deal.
His original song “Condemned” recently went viral on Twitter, prompting a firestorm of attention from anybody with half a brain about country music. When his stellar debut album DeAnn followed shortly after, it became evident that the hype was real. If you haven’t checked that album out by the way, I’d highly recommend you do so.
Already drawing songwriting comparisons to the likes of Tyler Childers and Evan Felker, watch as the 23-year-old singer/songwriter tips his cap to another songwriting heavyweight with his acoustic performance of Jason Isbell’s gut-wrenching “Dress Blues.”
As an active-duty member of the United States Navy himself, it’s not hard to imagine what a song like “Dress Blues” means to him.
