Singer-songwriter Zach Bryan was officially introduced to making music when he received his first guitar at 14 years old; it was not long after this that he could play and write songs. No one expected this Oklahoma native to become a country music star. Instead, he saw a future in the navy, enlisting as soon as he was allowed to do so.

During his free time at the navy, he played music, and during his time off from the navy, he and his companions decided to make some music together simply for fun.

This decision ended up in his first debut album, "DeAnn." Gaining positive feedback for the album, he continued to release albums such as "Elisabeth" in 2020 and the triple album "American Heartbreak" in 2022.

Remind me of those railroad tracks

That we jump and not look back

Keeps the lakes from going dry

Angry heart"
