Zach Bryan has scored his first ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, with his new self-titled project debuting at the top of the prestigious all-genre chart this week.

It's an impressive feat for the ‘Something in the Orange’ hitmaker, with his previous highest position being No. 5 for his acclaimed 2022 album, American Heartbreak.

After Zach Bryan's coveted No. 1 was confirmed, the country-folk songsmith took to Twitter to express his gratitude to fans for helping him to attain this unprecedented accolade, “I love you guys and I appreciate you. This has been an unbelievable year”.

The Billboard 200 announcement follows the surprising but temporary appearance of a new Zach Bryan single, ‘Dead or Grown’, on a number of streaming services over the weekend.

After being promptly taken down, Zach underlined his frustration at this unplanned development, “I did not release a single today lol, terrible people keep taking my old recordings and releasing them for profits on streaming and listens”.

Released on August 25, Zach Bryan has already spawned an array of fan-favourites, including stellar collaborations with The War and Treaty, Sierra Ferrell, The Lumineers and Kacey Musgraves.

The latter has inevitably garnered the most attention since the record's release, with Zach Bryan's nostalgic Kacey duet, ‘I Remember Everything’, widely expected to become the Oklahoma native's first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

Most are predicting the introspective track to triumph over the likes of ‘Rich Men North Of Richmond’ by Oliver Anthony, ‘Last Night’ by Morgan Wallen and ‘Fast Car’ by Luke Combs.

Either way, the latest Hot 100 chart is once again due to be dominated by the genre, with four out of the top five positions expected by many to be occupied by country artists.
