Every country fan knows that it's been a successful year for Zach Bryan - but today they received Billboard's proof of just how impressive Bryan's 2022 has really been.

Billboard has named Zach Bryan as the leader of the pack in their Top New Country Artists of 2022 ranking. Bryan takes the No. 1 spot, followed closely behind by Bailey Zimmerman, Jelly Roll, Nate Smith and Ernest.

Bryan was also included in Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart for 2022, with his smash hit, ‘Something in the Orange’, securing fifth place. The song recently received a 2023 Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance.

Zach Bryan's Billboard achievements follow hot on the heels of his tweet announcing that new music is on the way. Having already dropped two new singles in November, Bryan revealed that he is currently working on his next album, which will be titled Writers and Fighters’. It is set to be released in early 2023.

Bryan's streak of big releases has continued throughout 2022, which has helped him to rack up one billion Spotify streams this year alone. He celebrated the incredible statistic on November 30 as the world opened up their end-of-year Spotify Wrapped playlists.

To top it all off, Zach's ‘The Good I'll Do’ was featured in the new Yellowstone season last month, which has helped to propel his American Heartbreak album back up to the top of the Apple Music country albums chart. As 2022 draws to a close, this recent spate of accomplishments will serve as the icing on an already spectacular cake for the Oklahoma native.
