Absolutely love to see it.
There’s perhaps no bigger craze sweeping through Country Music right now than Zach Bryan.
The former Navy man turned superstar has been on a ride that’s nothing short of a rocket ship, going from posting songs on YouTube to selling out tours and taking on Ticketmaster in just a few years.
His latest album, American Heartbreak, absolutely blew up, leading to “Something In The Orange” going platinum and tearing up the Billboard charts, spending 40 consecutive weeks on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, making it the fourth steadiest song of all-time.
“Orange” also debuted at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100, Top 10 on Hot 100 All-Genre, and even Top 40 Country Radio, despite little to no industry push.
It was also nominated for a Grammy.
Not too bad for an Okie.
Well, needless to say, he’s picked up a number of big name fans who have supported him on this rise to the top.
None other than Theo Von helped him launch his upcoming Burn, Burn, Burn tour, he shared a stage with Christian McCaffrey at 22 And Troops benefit concert, and UFC vet Calvin Kattar has used his songs to hype him up for big fights.
Well, we just found out he’s got another sports star in his corner, as AJ Dillon, running back for the Green Bay Packers, posted his favorite song right now, “Someday (Maggie’s Song)”, as well as flashed some style by listening to it on vinyl.
I don’t know what it is, but man I love when athletes get down with some good old, heartfelt music.
Maybe in my head I just imagine them blasting rap and rock while banging out squats (and there’s no denying AJ Dillon is a big squat guy), so seeing things like this just absolutely fire me up.
Shoutout AJ Dillon.
