Up against some other talented newcomers, including Bailey Zimmerman, Ernest, Jackson Dean, Dylan Scott and Nate Smith, the trophy could’ve gone to a few of these guys. However, the insane popularity of Zach Bryan shows that the ACM’s probably got this one right.
I’ll be honest, regardless if he had won the award or not, it’s still cool to see someone like Zach Bryan being recognized by these mainstream award shows, even if Zach Bryan could care less. Still, congrats to him and all of his success, including his first ever ACM Award.
