Zach Bryan’s new studio album, The Great American Bar Scene, is set to release on Thursday, July 4 via Warner Records, but fans now have the opportunity to hear tracks from the project early in a very unique way. 

According to Bryan’s Instagram, he’s hand-picked 21 bars across the country to preview certain tracks from his new album.   

“My intent with all this is to give everyone an early glimpse of this album, but more importantly this is in the spirit of bringing people together for a memorable moment,” he explained. “I have chosen 21 bars across the country that embody the spirit of American culture. These bars will play select cuts from The Great American Bar Scene starting June 24th.”

The singer/songwriter admitted he’d love to perform at the local establishments. While that’s not possible, he does plan to visit some of them during the special album preview period.

“As much as I’d kill to play all these timeless bars, it won’t be possible. I will be visiting a few off the list to have a drink with y’all,” he teased.
