Establishing himself as “one of the most exciting new names in the music industry”, Bailey Zimmerman strikes a sweet spot between timeless American country, rafter-rattling arena rock, and authentic storytelling on his full-length debut LP, Religiously. The Album., available everywhere today via Parlophone (LISTEN HERE). Showcasing his passion for storytelling, the celebrated singer/songwriter is featured as a co-writer on 11 of the 16 tracks, including his current single, “Religiously.”
Heartbreak, change, growing up, letting go, moving on, and (maybe) finding love are just a few of the relatable stories Zimmerman shares on the album with intimate attention to the small things. The anxiously awaited project hits close to home, with songs that recall every little detail—whether it be the last ember of a Marlboro light, the emptiness of a goodbye kiss, or the final tear before walking out the door. It’s raw and real 21st century country, mixing lyrics that tug at the heartstrings with a sense of humor, a whole lot of soul and just enough of a rock kick to bring an arena to its feet. 

A young artist with the rasp of a seasoned rocker and the heart of a sensitive songwriter, Zimmerman has arrived at the cusp of superstardom in just over two years’ time. Already nearing 2 billion global streams to date, he also 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 US 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 Thursday night, where Bailey Zimmerman was also recognized as the latest artist selected by Amazon Music for their Breakthrough Artist program. This honour 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.
