LEIPER’S FORK, TENN. (June 28, 2024) Popular music venue Fox & Locke in Leiper’s Fork was the one bar in Tennessee chosen by Zach Bryan to debut selected cuts from his upcoming album “The Great American Bar Scene.” 

On Thursday night, June 27, the sold-out crowd heard some of the region’s top rising stars perform Bryan’s biggest hits. Following the live music, “The Great American Bar Scene” was debuted for die-hard fans, among the first to hear Bryan’s new music.

An overflow crowd of more than 1,000 people gathered in the Lawnchair Theatre and the grassy field behind the bar. State-of-the-art speakers, food trucks and exterior bars were set-up to serve the true Bryan devotees who attended. Special décor, Leiper’s Fork style, was staged to add creative ambience to the exterior spaces, including Bryan standees scattered around the Fork. 

Bryan chose 23 bars across 14 other states and Ontario, Canada to preview select songs from the new album, which will be released on July 4.

“I feel like I’m in on the biggest music secret ever, getting to hear Zach’s music first,” dedicated fan Maddie Hurt said. “I’ve been to a lot of music events, and tonight’s Zach Bryan preview show lands at the top. Now on to Nissan Stadium for Saturday night.”

Zach Bryan is a singer/songwriter from Oologah, Oklahoma. His hit songs include “Something in the Orange,” “Hey Driver,” and the most recent single releases “Pink Skies” and “Purple Gas.” 

The night of Zach Bryan music ended with a bang, as a 10-minute display of fireworks lit up the night sky.
