This is not the friendship I necessarily expected, but I’m here for it.
Apparently Niall Horan, a former member of the boy band One Direction, is a big fan of Zach Bryan, so much so that he covered Zach’s fan-favorite song “Something in the Orange” during a SiriusXM radio appearance earlier today.
From Zach’s behemoth of a 34-song major label debut studio album American Heartbreak, “Orange” is also his first official single at country radio, where it’s been steadily climbing the charts for quite a few months now.
Actually, it officially cracked the Top 25 on the Mediabase chart last week (one of two charts labels use to officially track their songs performance), and is well on its way to becoming his first Top 10 single at country radio.
“Orange” was also recently certified a whopping 4x Platinum, meaning it has moved over four million units since it was released on the aforementioned record.
And Zach seemed to enjoy Niall’s cover too, saying they got to meet in-person at one of Zach’s recent shows in London, adding how nice he was to his band, as well:
“It was so cool meeting Niall in London and meeting his friends, he was so so sick and insanely kind to all the boys.”

I have to give it to Niall here, he absolutely nailed this cover, and it’s pretty cool that he chose a great country song that I’m sure tons of new fans will get to hear for the first time because of it.
It’s definitely worth a few minutes out of your day to check out:
