The West Virginia State Fair has gained another popular artist for their concerts taking place in August 2022 — Zach Bryan.

Some know him, many don’t. Zach Bryan is a more recent country artist with his first album, “DeAnn”, released in 2019. Bryan has released one other album and an extended play. Bryan has teased his new album release with hit singles, “From Austin” and “Highway Boys.” He has continued to climb the country charts and will release his new album sometime in May. 

   He will perform at the State Fair of WV on Thursday, August 18th at 8 P.M. 

    “Zach Bryan has one of the most authentic voices and is one of the fastest-rising new artists there is. I promise you’re not going to want to miss this one,” stated the State Fair of WV CEO, Kelly Collins in an instagram post. She announced that tickets go on sale at 10 a.m., today, April 1st, 2022 at statefairofwv.com.

    Zach Bryan is one of the best artists I have heard in a while. His songs ring about heartbreak and dealing with grief and his voice has the perfect harmony. Most of his songs, depending on your own perspective of the lyrics, are dedicated to his late mother Annette DeAnn Bryan. 

    On top of Bryan releasing beautiful music and heartfelt lyrics, he served his country for eight years within the Navy. He was honorably discharged in 2021 ahead of his “Ain’t for Tamin” tour. 

Zach Bryan has a wonderful voice and you can hear the emotions when he sings. I, along with many others, are very excited to see him in August. Tickets may sell out fast. You can find and keep up with more information on the State fair’s instagram page, @statefairofwestvirginia.
