Zach Bryan has just released several collaborative tracks as part of his latest studio album, which became available Friday (Aug. 25) via Warner Music Nashville. Among these star-studded features is his duet with Kacey Musgraves titled, “I Remember Everything.” This tune had already become a fan-favorite by those who got the first taste through teasers shared via social media, and now following the official release, the song is racing towards becoming a No. 1 hit.
Claiming this top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart would be a first for Bryan. He is currently in the running close behind Luke Combs’ “Fast Car,” according to Talk Of The Charts.
Co-written by both collaborators, Bryan and Musgraves, “I Remember Everything” serves as a poetic ballad between two individuals who find themselves recalling their varying memories of a past relationship.
The Oklahoma artist takes the lead on the opening verse and chorus before Musgraves joins in with her velvety vocals to continue the storyline full of raw emotion and haunting melodies.
“A cold shoulder at closing time / You were bеggin’ me to stay ’til the sun rose / Strangе words come on out / Of a grown man’s mouth when his mind’s broke / Pictures and passin’ time / You only smile like that when you’re drinkin’ / I wish I didn’t, but I do / Remember every moment on the nights with you,” they deliver on the chorus through gentle harmonies.
This powerful tune isn’t the only track of Zach Bryan’s self-titled project that’s claiming a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. As reported by Talk of the Charts, an X account that provides an “in-depth look at music chart info, analysis, and predictions,” the entirety of the 16-track collection is expected to debut on next week’s charts. The accounts also revealed that each of the songs have the potential of landing inside the top 50.
After seeing so much excitement and support following the album’s release, Bryan took to Instagram to share a few heartfelt words with his dedicated listeners alongside a series of photos captured from his time spent working hard inside the studio.
He wrote, “I do not and will not fear tomorrow because I feel as though today has been enough thank you for all the love today, I am the luckiest man alive.”
Zach Bryan features several additional collaborations with Sierra Ferrell on “Holy Roller,” The Lumineers on “Spotless,” and The War and Treaty on “Hey Driver.”
While sharing the project’s tracklist, the “Something in the Orange” singer explained that he is “really proud to call the writing and production on somethin’ all mine.”
Bryan continued, “thank y’all for your patience, I didn’t make this album to appease people who will never be happy anyways, I made it for my people, hope everyone has a good weekend.”
This album marks Bryan’s fourth studio album in total and his second studio album since signing with Warner Records in 2021. After inking this deal, Bryan dropped his Platinum-certified American Heartbreak, which spent several months in the top 10 and spawned a handful of singles including “Til Brooklyn,” “Burn, Burn, Burn,” “Starved,” and his breakthrough hit, “Something In The Orange,” which has officially been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
This full-length collection was preceded by an EP titled Summertime Blues and a live album called All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster.
Zach Bryan has been selling out venues all year long on his headlining The Burn, Burn, Burn Tour. This run of shows is currently approaching the end with a final date of August 30, during which Bryan will perform in Kansas City, MO
Once this trek wraps up, Zach Bryan will continue performing throughout December at a variety of festivals including the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, At The Station Festival and Wild Horses Festival.
In 2024, he will embark on The Quittin Time Tour, kicking off on March 6 in Chicago, IL.
