It’s been incredibly rewarding to watch this talented, young artist develop as both a songwriter and performer, connecting with his fans in truly meaningful way.

“[While making this album], I learned patience and not to rush to the finish line on songs,” Zimmerman told American Songwriter in a recent interview. “Writing this album has taught me that sometimes a song needs more than a day or two. There are some songs on this album that have been worked on over the course of the last two years. So, I guess I’ve learned not to rush creativity. Just gotta let it flow.”

Zimmerman is currently on select dates on Morgan Wallen's One Night At A Time Tour.
