Fans Are Comparing The Intro Of Zach Bryan’s “Let You Down” To Taylor Swift’s “Should’ve Said No,” & Begging For A Collab

I find Zach Bryan and Taylor Swift could be the duo we never knew we needed.

Of course, Taylor was a country superstar before she made the leap to full-pop, and Zach is one of the genre’s biggest stars right now, as of his debut studio album American heartbreak continues to see monster streaming numbers and ends up in very solid places in various Billboard charts.

But perhaps most notable in the similarities between the two musicians is the fact that they both have huge, rabid fan bases that are as dedicated as they come.

And recently a TikTok video went viral in which a fan compared the intro to Zach’s song “Let You Down” to the intro to Taylor’s “Should’ve Said No,” and while they use a few different instruments, I definitely can hear similarities.

“Let You Down” is a solo song composed by Zach and was included on his 2020 album Quiet, heavy dreams EP.

“Should’ve Said No” is a solo song by Taylor, the fifth single from her 2008 self-titled debut studio album, which charted at #1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It has since been certified platinum, meaning it has moved over 1 million units.

And funnily enough, Zach actually recorded most of it America Heartbreak at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, where Taylor Swift recorded part of her 2019 album, Lover:

Honestly, even though Taylor is a mega pop star these days, I can see how her fanbases would have a lot of crossover. Some of the songs on Taylor’s 2020 folklore album seem like they probably fit into a Zach Bryan playlist.

Love or hate either of them, they’re both fantastic songwriters in their own right, and I’ve loved the good old-fashioned country cheatin’ song “Should’ve Said No” since I was 13 years old.

I really have no idea if Zach took inspiration from a young, teenage Taylor Swift for his song, but either way, I’m kinda here for it:

Of course, the comparison has fans begging for a collaboration, and here’s just a sampling of some of the comments below the video:

“Can we start a club with people whose top two artists are Zach and Taylor?”

“I knew immediately and honestly that I’m not a crazy lmao”

“They found the crossover group of big fans of both of them. I would say my top two artists.”

“As a Zach Bryan fan, I love it. As a Taylor Swift fan, I still know what you’re talking about.”

“Literally every time I hear these songs, I think of the others”

“No, because Zach and Taylor HAVE to work together!!!!!!”

“A big fan of both of them, but I’m not even mad. Both are great artists.”

“Where’s my Zach Bryan who loves Swifties?!”

“As a girl who loved growing up tswift and now a Zach Bryan fan, I love it.”

“So that explains why I like Zach Bryan so much”

“EVERY TIME I’m like, ‘I know Taylor’s not on this playlist'”

“I like to think he did it on purpose. Swift Zach”

“Zach Bryan’s ‘Billy Stay’ is storytelling and emotion at the Taylor Swift level. 10/10”

But this comment right here… Zach, if you’re reading this, we to need it:

“Can we get ‘Should’ve Said No’ – Zach’s version?”

And you can judge for yourself how similar the introductions really sound…

“let you fall”
