Zach Bryan Inks Publishing Deal With Warner Chappell Music

ZACH BRYAN has signed a global publishing deal with WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC (WCM). Could this be why he rolled back on the February album he promised fans?

BRYAN, the Country singer/songwriter, BELTING BRONCO/WARNER RECORDS artist, OKLAHOMA native, and NAVY veteran arrived in 2019 when his campfire video of “Heading South” went viral. The RIAA-certified track has amassed more than 19 million views and led to the independent release of his debut album, “DEANN,” followed by his second album, “ELISABETH.” 

BRYAN’s first major label release, “AMERICAN HEARTBREAK,” issued in MAY 2022, set the stage for a string of sold-out U.S. concert dates. He closed out the year with a surprise, 24-track live album, “ALL MY HOMIES HATE TICKETMASTER,” recorded live at COLORADO’s RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATER. BRYAN has a new album, “WRITERS AND FIGHTERS,” coming this year. He has also appeared in the fifth season of PARAMOUNT’s “YELLOWSTONE.”

“I’d like to personally thank [WCM Head of A&R, Australia and VP/Creative] DAVID [GOLDSEN] and the team over at WARNER CHAPPELL. I was just a confused kid in the NAVY four years ago, and they were the first people I talked to in the industry, literally. They never pushed a four-man writing team on me, they never asked me to do anything I didn’t want to do, they just believed in me. I owe them more than just support; I owe them back the faith they had in me as a barely 23-year-old OKLAHOMA kid walking around NEW YORK like a sore thumb.” 

WCM NORTH AMERICA Pres. RYAN PRESS said, “ZACH has already had a record-breaking start to his career, and there’s so much more to come. He isn’t afraid to do things differently, and it’s been incredible to see him become such a positive force in the industry and reshape how singer/songwriters release music. This is a huge moment, and we’re very proud to be on this journey together as he continues to carve out his own path.” 

BRYAN will kick off his “Burn Burn Burn” tour in MAY, as well as headlining summer festivals, including WINDY CITY SMOKEOUT and ROCK THE SOUTH.
