Even though he’s already topped the Billboard 200, Billboard Hot 100 and Artist 100 with the release of his new self-titled album, it looks like Zach Bryan has a few more musical tricks up his sleeve. In a series of social media posts Thursday (Sept. 14), one of those tricks could be a project with “Dial Drunk” crooner Noah Kahan.
“Hardest working man in music,” Bryan captioned a snap of Kahan, who was petting Jack, Bryan’s pet dog, while holding an acoustic guitar on his lap in what appears to be a home recording studio. “Let’s goooo @noahkahanmusic.”
The Grammy-nominated “Something in the Orange” singer also shared the picture to his X (formerly Twitter) page, writing, “Jack, huge Noah guy.” Kahan reposted Bryan’s snap with the caption “High praise from the [GOAT],” with a goat emoji.
In an Instagram Story posted four hours earlier, Bryan showed he and his collaborators working on some music. “Another hard earned day for Jack at the office,” he wrote.
While it is unclear if Bryan and Kahan are working on anything together, the link-up marks the union of two of 2023’s brightest stars. Earlier this month, Bryan’s self-titled album became his first set to top the Billboard 200 and spawned the Hot 100-topping Kacey Musgraves duet “I Remember Everything.” Zach Bryan opened with the biggest streaming week for a rock album in history. With a debut of over 200,000 units, Zach Bryan also logged the largest consumption week for a rock album in four years.
As for Kahan, following a deluxe reissue, Stick Season — his third studio album, which was originally released in 2022 — reached a new Billboard 200 peak of No. 3, surpassing its previous peak of No. 14. The record also reached No. 1 on Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Top Alternative Albums and Top Americana/Folk Albums. “Dial Drunk,” the LP’s breakout single, became Kahan’s first Hot 100 hit (No. 25) and received a remix from Post Malone.
