Last month, seemingly out of nowhere Bailey Zimmerman began teasing fans with a mysterious audio clip, and today he is ready to answer all questions with the release of “Holy Smokes.”

Zimmerman’s first new music since his record breaking 2023 debut album, Religiously. The Album, “Holy Smokes” combines his atmospheric vocals with a pensive piano riff and ambient production. Zimmerman co-write the track with his frequent collaborator Austin Shawn, as well as Ben Stennis, Michael Tyler, and Lauren Hungate.

Listen to “Holy Smokes” below.

Zimmerman has been treating live audiences to an early taste of “Holy Smokes” on his sold-out 30+ city international headline trek, RELIGIOUSLY. THE TOUR. Known for always putting his listeners first, the passionate performer debuted the new song to capacity crowds that were already able to scream the lyrics back to him. These kinds of electrifying and fan-first moments are highlighted in his BTS tour video series, Religiously. The Tour. The Vlogs.

The Illinois native captivates eager audiences night after night with magnetic performances of the deep cuts and the mega hits on Religiously. The Album., including his nearly Top 20 current single, “Where It Ends.” The album originally arrived as the biggest streaming country debut of all time and features his three consecutive Multi-Platinum, No. 1 US country radio singles “Religiously,” “Fall In Love,” and 2023’s No. 1 most-played song on country radio, “Rock And A Hard Place.”

Religiously. The Tour. picks up next Thursday (2/29) in St. Louis before back-to-back nights in major markets like NYC, Indianapolis, San Antonio and more. The 2024 Stagecoach headliner is also set to join multiple stadium tours this year, including Morgan Wallen‘s One Night At A Time World Tour once more and Luke Bryan‘s Mind Of A Country Boy Tour.
