At a tour stop in Ashland, Kentucky over the weekend, Zach literally shut the streets down after his sold out show at the Ashland Riverfront Park, and it looked like a scene after a Super Bowl win or NCAA championship victory.
I mean, you literally couldn’t see one inch of pavement, and these people look like they’re ready to celebrate the first championship win their team has had in the last 25 years… it’s pretty insane.
And for journalistic purposes, I looked up the population of Ashland, and as of the 2020 census, the town contains about 20,449 people, give or take a few over the last couple years since data was gathered.
Zach shared a couple pictures on his Twitter account that fans sent him post-show, and it seems that the infrastructure wasn’t exactly built to support this kind of fandom.
Judging by what I can see here, it looks like the entire town and then some hit the town after the show:
“Be back soon Ashland. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
