You hate to see anyone have to cancel a show for COVID, and as much as the fans hate to miss their favorite artists, and spend good money making arrangements, I know guys like Zach especially hate to let their fans down.
All the way around, it sucks.
Zach Bryan broke the news that following his Memorial Day Weekend appearances alongside Willie Nelson in Texas, that he has tested positive for COVID. Nobody panic though, Zach never got within 20 feet of Willie.
That being said, he’ll be forced to cancel a handful of shows, and quite possibly his stadium show with Luke Combs in Seattle this weekend. And not to rub a little salt in the wound, but we had some of the team out at the Denver show a couple weeks back… it was electric.
(And if it makes anyone feel better, maybe Zach included, I missed the Denver stadium show because my 33-year-old ass has mono… like some college kid swapping spit at the beer pong table of a frat party. But either way, being sick sucks).
Zach shared a heartfelt message to his fans and friends, letting us all know how sorry he is.
On a more positive note, Zach’s stellar debut album, American Heartbreak, debuted at #1 on the country music charts, and #5 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.
So in addition to breaking the record for single album streams in a 24-hour period (surpassing one billion streams in his career already), he also has one of the highest streaming country albums in history of the genre.
The sky is the limit for this Highway Boy… just as soon as he gets healthy again.
