It still feels like yesterday when videos started popping up of this guy picking on a guitar, and singing “Condemned.”
Fast forward three years down the road, and Zach Bryan just might be the most compelling act, not only country music, but in music as a whole.
Growing a rabid fanbase completely grassroots, welcoming a whole new crowd of young fans to the world of independent country music, and doing so with one of the most humble and hardworking attitudes in the business… his journey has truly been incredible to watch.
It’s been wild watching his journey throughout the past few years, and we still have more to come, as he announced that he has a new album in the works and will feature fan favorite “Deep Satin,” and he plans to release it around February.
Perhaps the only thing that Zach Bryan is known more for than his vivid storytelling and gritty vocals, are his kickass shows.
And speaking of his shows, he recently brought his dad, Dewayne Bryan, on stage at one of his recent concerts to sing “Revival,” a favorite from his second album Elisabeth.
In the short clip, you see Zach and Dewayne scream the chorus at the top of their lungs:
“Baptize me in a bottle of Beam and put Johnny on the vinyl”
Bryan shared the video via Twitter:
“Old man popped up last night. Thank you guys for letting me always express myself and become the man I think I might have been born to be.
I have nothing but love in my heart nowadays.”
Gotta love it…
And for Zach, you know it’s moments like this that he’s gonna remember forever.
You gotta love a good ol’ father/son heartwarming moment on your Monday.
And of course, the album version:
