Zach Bryan keeps pulling out some big surprises on this tour.

Of course Zach is currently on the road for his Quttin’ Time tour, and on opening night he surprised the crowd with an appearance from Kacey Musgraves to perform their duet, “I Remember Everything.” And in Washington DC, The War and Treaty showed up to perform a surprise duet of “Hey Driver.”

He’s also had folks like New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones and Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon onstage to perform revival (though he didn’t have Mama Kelce, despite what one fan thought).

But last night he might have pulled off the biggest surprise of them all.

To be fair it wasn’t a total surprise. After the setlist for his show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn leaked online, many thought that Zach would be joined by Bruce Springsteen on his unreleased song, “Sandpaper.”

And sure enough, they were right.

Zach teased a snippet of the unreleased song on social media back in January, but last night he brought out The Boss to join him on the track, much to the excitement of the NYC crowd.

So does this mean that Springsteen is going to be on the album version? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out…but if I know anything about Zach, with as often as he drops music, we probably won’t have to wait too long.

Springsteen Returns To Stage, Gets Roasted By Social Media

It’s hard to age with grace in the spotlight. Well, I suppose it’s easier to age when you’re a multi-millionaire, but the whole spotlight part is always gonna bring the criticism.

Bruce Springsteen just returned from a hiatus in his 2023 world tour due to a health issues associated with peptic ulcer disease. His comeback should have been celebrated, but instead, many on social media are making fun of the 74-year-old’s appearance after a multi-month break from performing.

“The Boss” and the E-Street Band got back on stage in Phoenix this past week, and one photo from the night has made its rounds on social media. In defense of the legendary rock n’ roll artist, the picture a) isn’t from a great angle, b) doesn’t have the most flattering lighting and c) didn’t capture the Bruce in the best pose.

I don’t think this caption helped his case either:

“Now fully healthy (and still in better shape than me), Bruce Springsteen re-joined the E Street Band and launched his 2024 tour with an epic 29-song performance in Phoenix on Tuesday night.”

Listen, for a guy that is pushing 75 and just had to take an extended amount of time off to get back into touring form, Bruce Springsteen doesn’t look that bad. At the very least, his history as one of the biggest acts on the planet should earn him some respect.

But social media is a cruel, ruthless place, and they quickly took the opportunity to make some brutal jokes at the expense of Springsteen (and other celebrities), likening his appearance to that of Ellen DeGeneres, Megan Rapinoe, and actress Tilda Swinton:

The unflattering screen grab came from the “band introductions” segment of the show:
