Zach Bryan’s Rise Was Just the Beginning of Country’s 2023 Triumphs

One of last year’s most unexpected musical twists was the ascent of Zach Bryan, the rootsy singer-songwriter who sounds not unlike Bruce Springsteen or Jason Isbell — and went all the way to Number One on the Hot 100 with the ballad “I Remember Everything,” assisted by Kacey Musgraves. His self-titled fourth album was one of the best country/Americana releases of the year, but it’s only one of the unmissable 2023 releases in that category, from Jason Isbell’s own Weathervanes to Megan Maroney‘s Lucky.


In the new episode of Rolling Stone Music Now, we dive into all of the year’s best releases, with Joseph Hudak joining host Brian Hiatt for the discussion, which also touches on albums from Lucinda Williams, Allison Russell, Margo Cilker, and many more.
