Breakout artist Bailey Zimmerman added to 2024 Barefoot Country Music Fest

Since its inception, the Barefoot Country Music Fest has strived to showcase some of the biggest names in the industry`along with its fastest-rising artists.

The latest addition to the 2024 version of the event has the latter description down, and appears well on his way to superstardom.

At just 23 years of age, Bailey Zimmerman has taken the country world by storm. The blue collar-bred Illinois native will join headliners Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Kane Brown and Old Dominion and many more on the Wildwood Beach next June 20-23.

Zimmerman began posting original music to his TikTok account in late 2020, earning a fast and loyal following. In January 2021, he released his debut single “Never Coming Home,” which found its way into the top 20 on Spotify’s Viral Chart in the United States.

He followed that up with “Fall in Love,” a smash hit that is currently racing up the Billboard Top 100 chart after climbing all the way to #1 on Apple. Its success, along with subsequent hits “Rock and a Hard Place” and “Where it Ends” led to him being signed to Warner Music Nashville and Elektra Records. 

Zimmerman released his debut major-label project Leave the Light On in late 2022. It debuted in the top ten of both the Billboard 200 and Canadian Albums charts, supporting his first national headlining tour. In May 2023, he released his debut LP, Religiously, The Album, and is set to embark on a major tour of the U.S., Great Britain and Ireland in 2024.

"The Amazon Music 2022 Artist to Watch and YouTube Trending Artist on the Rise was born and raised in the small town of Louisville, IL, where he grew up listening to hour after hour of country radio on the long hauls across state lines with his father, who owned a trucking business," noted an official BCFM release. "Back at home, his mom instilled in him a lifelong appreciation for the power chords and edgy vocals of 80's hair rock.

"From long hours on the gas pipeline to late nights of back-breaking roadwork, Zimmerman embodies the old school American values of hard work and dependability, and applies the same steadfast mentality to his music."
