Zach Bryan is taking the charts by storm.

And not just the country charts…

“Something in the Orange,” his single from his highly-anticipated forthcoming debut studio album American Heartbreak, debuted at #55 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week:

And he broke several other of his own records, as well.

According to Billboard, it also jumped from the #9 to #1 on the U.S. Billboard Emerging Artists chart to become the top emerging act in the U.S. for the first time, in addition to opening at #4 on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, #11 on Hot Country Songs and #55 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Luminate also reported that the song already had 8.8 million official U.S. streams in its first week.

All of that makes “Orange” Zach’s highest-charting hit on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs (second top 10), after “From Austin” peaked at #9 in March. It’s also Zach’s highest-placing Hot Country Songs entry and his first on the Hot 100.

Lastly, “Orange” is the highest entrance on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart this year, which tops the #5 entrance of Machine Gun Kelly and blackbear’s single “Make Up Sex” last month.

Not too shabby, Zach… and the album hasn’t even been released yet. Though you won’t hear us say it very often here at Whiskey Riff, the hype for him is very, very real with Zach.

It’s no secret at this point (unless you live under a rock) that he’s on the fast-track to becoming a massive star in country music (and beyond), and I would tell you to hop on the bandwagon now, but it’s long gone at this point.

Zach’s career trajectory has been absolutely insane over the last several years, and this new record (out May 20th) promises to be HUGE…

I mean, if his recent performance of the track at the Auburn Rodeo isn’t living, breathing proof of all of that, I don’t know what is:
