A young artist with the rasp of a seasoned rocker and the heart of a sensitive songwriter, Bailey Zimmerman has arrived at the cusp of superstardom with the release of Religiously. The Album. marking not only the biggest streaming debut album of the year across all genres, but also the biggest streaming country debut of all time. “Comfortably bruising and appealingly bruised” (The New York Times), the LP debuted Top 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, No. 7 on their all-genre Billboard 200 chart and No. 8 on The Billboard Canadian Album Chart.

Writing “some of mainstream country’s most emotionally powerful tracks” (The Tennessean), Zimmerman has already surpassed 2 billion global streams to date and recently celebrated a six-week #1 single with his multi-Platinum smash “Rock And A Hard Place.” Achieving this feat solidified his place in history as “the first male artist to spend six weeks atop Country Airplay just two or fewer promoted chart entries, in a lead role, into a career,” according to Billboard.

The 2023 ACM Awards New Male Artist nominee performed the monster hit as part of the live TV event earlier this month (WATCH HERE), where he was also recognized as the latest artist selected by Amazon Music for their Breakthrough Artist program. This honor follows his first time as a CMT Music Awards nominee earlier this year, earning recognition in both the Male Video of the Year and Breakthrough Male Video of the Year categories.

Establishing himself as “one of the most exciting new names in the music industry” (Forbes), Zimmerman’s collaboration with YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Dermot Kennedy for the original song, “Won’t Back Down” is out now (LISTEN HERE). The track and its music video (WATCH HERE) are part of the official soundtrack for Fast X; the tenth and penultimate installment of the Fast & Furious mega franchise.
