He’s taking the music world by storm! It seems like Zach Bryan came out of nowhere, but the singer has actually released four albums over the years. His first, titled DeAnn, was self-released in 2019. He followed that up with a second, Elisabeth, in May 2020, before signing with Warner Records.
“Everyone went kind of crazy for them,” he told CMT in May 2022 of his first two records. “So I’m like the luckiest guy in the world. I don’t really deserve any of it, but it’s been an absolute blast. And I would catch them up by saying, ‘Hey, I’m just a 26-year-old. I’m just a guy like everyone else, trying my best to get through life.’ And if people wanted to join, they can. If they don’t, that’s OK too.”
His third album, American Heartbreak, came in May 2022. His self-titled fourth record, Zach Bryan, dropped in August 2023.
