Santa Claus has been kids! Zach Bryan has released his much-anticipated new live album, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks), on Christmas Day.
The album captures the 24-song set he played at the momentous venue in Denver, Colorado through treacherous snow and icy conditions, a show that has already gone down in folklore for Bryan fans that were and weren't there respectively.
Bryan announced the record in a lengthy post on social media, casually dropping that the album was available now after having shared a statement against ticket providers' treatment of concert-goers and the high cost of tickets, sharing that he was booking a financially accessible tour for 2023.
Bryan also revealed he has made an account on the messaging service Laylo, where he will be making merch-drops available and sharing unreleased music.
On immediate listen, the recording is brazen and passionate - it captures the freezing air that sits heavy in the lungs of those in attendance, burning through their throats as they scream along with Bryan.
He is in an especially roaring mood himself, barking through 'Oklahoma Smokeshow' with heart and triumph.
The record also includes renditions of John Denver's 'Country Roads' and his original song 'Jamie', which Bryan once again performed with his old pal, Charles Wesley Godwin.
Soon after releasing All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks), the album shot to No. 1 on the US iTunes chart.
It completes an insanely successful 2022 for Bryan, in a year that has seen him perform on the smash-hit drama Yellowstone, be nominated for a Grammy for 'Something In The Orange' and be announced for headline slots at some of the biggest and most popular country festivals in the US for 2023, including Rock The South, Windy City Smokeout and Under The Big Sky.
