His recent social media post on Thursday read, “On the road again, gonna go see the birds win”
Zach Bryan was arrested on Thursday on charges of “obstruction of investigation” in Oklahoma. the singer-songwriter was released on bond on the same day.
At press time, it is unclear what led to his arrest. His recent social media post on Instagram stories featured a photo of a dog in his passenger seat with the caption, “On the road again, gonna go see the birds win.” (Bryan, who lives in Philadelphia, is a hardcore Eagles fan.)
The news follows a streak of historical success for the country singer. This week, his self-titled album debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 albums chart, moving the equivalent of 200,000 units in its first week. It simultaneously topped the rock, rock & alternative, Americana/folk, and country charts, as well as Spotify, iTunes, and iTunes Country. All 16 of its tracks landed in the Top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100, with “I Remember Everything,” his duet with Kacey Musgraves, debuting at Number One.
Last week, he announced his upcoming Quittin Time Tour that will largely find Bryan playing arenas around the country, alongside a few stadium gigs. It all kicks off March 6 and 7, 2024 with two shows at the United Center in Chicago and wraps Dec. 13 and 14 with two special hometown shows at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Bryan is also up for the New Artist of the Year category in the 2023 CMA Awards.
