Zach Bryan’s Song That Started It All, “Heading South,” Is Officially Certified Platinum

Another big milestone for Zach Bryan.

His fan-favorite song, Heading South, which started it all for him, was officially certified platinum by the RIAA. The platinum certification means that Heading South has moved an impressive 1,000,000+ units overall.

Of course, we’ve probably all seen the original, grainy video he shared on social media in 2019 that went viral. Shortly after the release of “Condemned,” he released “Heading South,” which exploded to over 17 million views on YouTube.

Playing the song in a sweat from muggy Florida, that song and “Condemned” really started the insane country music journey he’s been on ever since.

He previously shared tweeted a bit about the song’s backstory, saying he was inspired to write it after dealing with a less-than-pleasant Navy chief, adding that he wrote it in about three minutes.

Zach was previously an active duty member of the US Navy for several years be honorably discharged to make music full-time in October 2021:

Confirming the new certification on Twitter, Zach thanks fans for filming Heading South and helping him achieve this new achievement:

“You guys are the best, thanks for filming that old number.”

And he did it with virtually no play on mainstream radio, which makes it all the more impressive that so many people are drawn to his music.

Now if this isn’t proof of Zach Bryan’s power, I don’t know what is:

What a ride it’s been for the Oklahoma boy so far…and he’s just getting started.

It’s no secret that he’s had a monster year since the release of his first studio album since he’s fully committed to music American heartbreakexhibiting his Summertime blues EP and the release of some others independent singles on the way, including two brand new ones called “The greatest day of my life” and “May Fifth.”

And on Tuesday it was announced that he was nominated his first-ever Grammy Award for “Something in the Orange” in the category Best Country Solo Performance.

His label also recently sent this particular song to country radio as his first-ever single currently in the top 40 on mainstream country radio.

And while you’re here, why not take a look back at the video that started it all:
