Jacob Bryant Makes Grand Ole Opry Debut
Country rocker Jacob Bryant debuted at the Grand Ole Opry tonight, just one month after the release of his Bar Stool Preacher album. Bryant was announced by Grand Ole Opry member and No. 1 Billboard charting artist, Mark Wills. His powerful performance of "Heartbeat" and "Sometimes I Pray" received a standing ovation from the audience.
"I'm beyond grateful to have performed at such a historic venue like the Opry, which has played such a huge part in country music. To have had my wife, daughter and son as well as my team to experience this with me is an absolute blessing. God is good," Bryant shared.
Released on Jan. 14 via Thirty Tigers and American Roots Records, Bar Stool Preacher "tells deeply personal stories about his long, hard road to this phase of his life and career (Wide Open Country)." With over 2 million streams in less than one month, Bar Stool Preacher has landed in the Top 30 on Billboard's Current Country Albums and Top New Artist Albums and received recognition from Billboard, People.com, The Boot/Taste of Country, CMT.com, American Songwriter and many more. In support of the release, Bryant is currently on his Bar Stool Preacher tour. See full list of tour dates below and to purchase tickets, click HERE.
Produced by Bryant, Jesse Triplett, Brandon Metcalf, Noah Gordon and Jeff Catton, Bar Stool Preacher was recorded at South X Sea Studios in Nashville. The 13-song collection stays true to Bryant's trademark, deeply personal style that has built an eager fan base and caught the attention of industry heavyweights like Thirty Tigers. The global music marketing, management, distribution and publishing company recently inked its deal with Bryant and American Roots Records. "I think Jacob has it in him to be a major star, and I’m proud that he and his team picked us to help him realize his promise,” shared Thirty Tigers President David Macias.
