As he prepares to embark on his trailblazing, low-cost 2023 Burn, Burn, Burn tour, Zach Bryan has unveiled the artists he'll be taking with him on the road as support.
Unsurprisingly, Zach's long-time collaborator and friend, Charles Wesley Godwin, will serve as opener on a number of dates. As part of Charles’ recent Live from the Church EP, the West Virginia songsmith covered Zach's haunting murder ballad, ‘Crooked Teeth’.
Fans will be hoping the two team up on stage to perform the track together, along with their stunning 2022 co-write, ‘Jamie’.
Those attending Zach's 2023 tour have already had a taste of what to expect via his Christmas Day project, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live from Red Rocks).
On the live album, Zach Bryan and Charles Wesley Godwin are joined by Jonathan Peyton, Abigail Peyton and The Allegheny High for an electric cover John Denver's iconic hit, ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’.
Jonathan Peyton will be joining Charles as support for Zach's upcoming Burn, Burn, Burn tour. Also set to open on a range of dates is the widely celebrated country prodigy, J.R. Carroll, along with folk-bluegrass mavericks, Trampled By Turtles.
As he announced the opening acts in a now-deleted social media post, Zach Bryan emphasised his love for the artists he'd chosen, “Our openers are my favourite bands in the world, Charles Wesley Godwin, Trampled By Turtles, Jonathan Peyton & JR Carroll”.
Shortly after sharing the news, Zach appears to have left Twitter for the second time in the space of just a couple of weeks. He also seems to have deleted his Instagram account.
This new social media hiatus could have been instigated by the somewhat bizarre criticism the Oklahoma native has been receiving for his tour's ticketing system. In order to deter ticket scalpers and keep prices low, Zach released the tickets via an email ballot.
Due to overwhelming demand, many fans missed out. To try and help them, Zach Bryan recently announced additional dates in Tulsa, New York, Philadelphia and Duluth.
