Country singer Zach Bryan’s dad is walking 55 miles to help cancer survivors and special education, and all Bryan is asking his fans to send are words of encouragement.

“Hey guys my dad is walking 55 miles in support of Cancer survivors and special education and he’s taking donations every mile, i’d never ask for money but if there’s anyway y’all could send him some words of encouragement, he’s on mile 44 and there’s ten left,” Bryan tweeted Friday.

Bryan’s dad’s Twitter handle is @shippinwag.

Replies to Bryan’s Tweet Show Generosity of His Fans

Bryan’s fans just wanted to help, and so, in addition to words of encouragement, they also offered to donate anyway. They marveled at Bryan’s amazing father and asked how they could chip in.

“In this case you are well within your rights to ask any all fans to kick a buck or two to help end cancer,” one fan replied. “Please share if donations are still being accepted. And tell your old man LFG!!!”

“Let’s go dad!!!!” tweeted another.

“He is killing it!” yet another fan chimed in. “He is a remarkable person!”

Zach Bryan Made His Grand Ole Opry Debut This Past April

Bryan, who hails from small-town Oologah, Oklahoma, made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage on April 10 of this year. He is also an active-duty member of the U.S. Navy – part of a family tradition, according to his Opry bio.

Bryan plays music in the outlaw country vein mixed with classic folk influences. He dedicated his debut album, DeAnn, to his late mom. His 2020 follow-up, Elisabeth, paid tribute to his loved ones.

Following his Opry debut, Bryan decided to hit the road. He’s embarking on his Ain’t for Tamin’ Tour soon. It kicks off on Oct. 20 in St. Louis, Missouri, winding through Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma before ending in Texas on Nov. 27. (And before his tour officially starts, Bryan is also playing some shows in Alabama and Texas.)

Tickets are available at starting today.

“Be sure to pay attention to COVID requirements at each specific venue,” Bryan warned his fans. “I appreciate you all more than words could express.”
