“I think I might have some stuff to address: I’ve been hanging out with a guy named Zach,” she told her co-cost, Grace O’Malley, at the time. 

“Zach who?” O’Malley questioned. 

“Bryan,” Chickenfry clarified. “[We] started hanging out … what, three weeks ago?”

How Did Zach and Brianna Meet?

According to social media, they have been spending quite a bit of time together. Most recently, the couple jetted across the pond for a trip to Paris, France. They took in the local sights, including the Eiffel Tower and visited the Louvre Museum to view the original Mona Lisa. 

Zach Bryan and Brianna Chickenfry reportedly met at the ACM Awards in May of 2023. Brianna was a fan of his music and snapped a photo with the “Something In The Orange” singer at the event.
