Zach Bryan has emerged as one of the biggest superstars in the country music genre. His brand new self-titled album is full of hits. Here are arguably the five best songs off the record.
“Hey Driver” ft. The War and Treaty
“So take me down a road that’s a little bit windy // To a place they still put sugar in their iced tea // Where the women are fine and the love is fair // Hey, driver, you can drop me off anywhere”
One of the few collaborations off the record, the second this song kicks off, you know you are in for a good time. Both Bryan and The War and Treaty smash the vocals on this track. It is hard not to fall in love with it almost instantly.
“You can fight and fiend and sell your guns // But you’ll always be thе Oklahoman son // You’ll always be the Oklahoman son”
Even before the song came out, there was something special about Bryan’s voice and honesty on this song. The song feels haunting, poetic, and achingly beautiful – qualities that many of the superstar’s songs seem to possess.
“Fear and Friday’s”
“I got a fear, dear, that it’s gonna end // Won’t you get angry at me, say you love me again? // I got a fear dear, that it’s a Friday spark // You only love me like you mean it when it’s after dark”
While the intro poem version of this song is equally as good, the full-length song is captivating. “Fear and Friday’s” has instantly won the hearts of music lovers everywhere. The song is honest, raw, and relatable making it one of the best songs off Zach Bryan’s self-titled project.
“I Remember Everything” ft. Kacey Musgraves
“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”
While truthfully all the collaborations could have made this list, “I Remember Everything” featuring Kacey Musgraves is a standout. Both Musgraves and Bryan trade verses on the song, adding to the overall ambiance of the track. The tune is all heart, and it’s hard not to love it.
“Jakes’s Piano – Long Island”
“I finally quit smokin’ cigarettes // And I don’t go downtown drinkin’ ’til it’s dawn // The best parts of you are here but you’rе still gone”
Finally, our last pick for one of the best songs of Bryan’s self-titled album is “Jake’s Piano – Long Island.” A homage to Long Island, New York, and memories that Bryan clearly had there, it feels important to share this song on this list, since we are a NY-based company. Also, the track just happens to be really incredible too!
