The softhearted track driven by a simple strum of the guitar guides fans through a painfully relatable journey. From lyric to lyric, Zach offers a fly on the wall perspective of a budding young love. In a genre that craves relatable stories, You & I is authentic and raw yet so universal.

Determined to bring his story forward style of country to life, the title track shows off what a thoughtful tunesmith Zach is.
