I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Zach Bryan is the most compelling story in country music right now.
Charles Wesley Godwin likened his rabid fanbase to something reminiscent of The Beatles in the ’60s, but either way, the man has built himself something incredible… the kind of fanbase that some artists with #1 singles on country radio would kill for.
And here’s the thing, he’s pretty much done it all without ever stepping foot inside a true recording studio. No professional session musicians, no mastermind producer at the helm… his first two album were completely self-produced in a makeshift home studio.
But it doesn’t matter because the songwriting and the stories… they’ve resonated with fans so powerfully, reaching deep enough into their souls that, while active duty military, Zach became a star before he even had the chance to… become a star.
And even now, it’s only the beginning.
Today, Zach releases the lead single from his major label studio debut, American Heartbreak,treating fans to their first taste of his music with high quality production.
Titled “From Austin,” it’s about loving someone that you’re essentially no good for. Loving someone knowing you can’t give them everything they need and coming to grips with the fact that you have to let them go. And then… finally letting go.
