Country music star Zach Bryan arrested in rural Oklahoma

Rising country music star Zach Bryan was arrested on Thursday in rural Oklahoma, Fox News Digital has confirmed.

The 27-year-old singer/songwriter was booked into the Craig County Jail in Vinita, Oklahoma, on an obstruction of investigation charge. He was released not long after.

It is unclear what led to his arrest, and a rep for Bryan did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment. 

The Oologah, Oklahoma, native recently won the Academy of Country Music Award for “New Male Artist Of The Year.”

His self-titled album debuted on Aug. 25 and immediately rose to the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Bryan, a U.S. Navy veteran, started out sharing his music on YouTube while he was enlisted and ultimately caught the eyes of millions through his viral 2019 hit “Heading South.”

His first major-label album “American Heartbreak” debuted last May with a 34-song track list, and reached number five on the Billboard 200.
