Are y’all as obsessed with Zach Top as we are yet?

The Washington native grew up on a ranch living the cowboy lifestyle, but after realizing he was not handy with a rope, he changed his career direction to begin pursuing music.

He had quickly captivated the gaze of country music fans with his ’90s-rooted sound. While he has a history in bluegrass from the band his siblings and he created, Top Strings, his honky tonk dreams still called his name.

Once he moved to Nashville, it didn’t take him long to land a publishing deal with Major Bob Music; and combined with the success of his single “Cold Beer And Country Music,” Zach Top was quickly on everyone’s radar.

Even Parker McCollum has taken notice of Zach’s incredible talent and traditional country sound.

While many artists take years to get to their Grand Ole Opry debut, the opportunity presented itself quickly for Zach.

“My heart was always in country from the beginning.”

Zach was surprised by his parents at the Opry, making the already surreal day even more special, having his biggest advocates in his corner.

“I’m pumped; I’ve got some family here, a bunch of friends. I’m really excited to step onto that history and storied stage and have them all here to support me.

Let’s hope I don’t forget words or forget how to sing.” 

Top stepped out on that stage like it was his, delivering the lyrics with twang and ease. He could not have asked for a more seamless debut on one of the most iconic stages in country music.

If Top continues on this path, he is well on his way to becoming a modern-day George Strait or Alan Jackson.
