Zach Bryan and Maggie Rogers’ celebrated 2023 single, ‘Dawns’, has been certified Platinum by the RIAA, in recognition of the heartbroken song earning the equivalent of one million units.
The duo released the genre-blending track towards the end of January 2023, after the ‘Something in the Orange’ hitmaker had teased the Wintery anthem in the months leading up to its release.
With the unrivalled pace at which Zach Bryan shares new music, the fanfare around ‘Dawns’ has been somewhat diminished following the release of Zach's widely acclaimed self-titled album in August and his surprise Boys Of Faith EP a matter of weeks later.
Nonetheless, ‘Dawns’ remains one of the most celebrated tracks in Zach's expansive discography, with the atypical production style and ethereal vocals ensuring it stands out against the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter's more stripped-back offerings.
Many would argue that ‘Dawns’ was Zach's first major foray into the folkier sound he explores on Boys Of Faith, with the ‘I Remember Everything’ songsmith combining seamlessly with Maggie Rogers for a haunting, angsty duet.
Before the release of his self-titled record, Zach Bryan revealed on Twitter that he'd be dropping a live version of ’Dawns’ as part of the eagerly awaited project.
However, this revamped rendition of the track has so far failed to materialise, and it remains to be seen whether Zach has plans to produce another live album, following last year's Christmas Day release, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks).
