As we wrote earlier this month, "Most country music artists worth their weight in guitar picks are envious of Zach Bryan’s rise to fame over the past few years. Hailing from Oklahoma, the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and guitarist got his big break in 2017 when his home-recorded song 'Heading South' went viral on YouTube, catapulting him into the spotlight. His debut album, 'DeAnn,' was released two years later and earned Bryan even more attention. After signing with Warner Records in 2021, his most recent album, 'American Heartbreak,' topped Billboard’s country and rock charts before going platinum."

Bryan is obviously a hot commodity among the country music-loving population of metro Phoenix. His upcoming show on Friday at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale is officially sold out.

If you are one of the lucky fans who were able to secure tickets, here's everything you need to know about the show, including where to park, who the opening acts are and what kind of bag to bring.
