Rock And A Hard Place was written by Heath Warren, Jacob Hackworth and Jet Harvey.
Bailey co-wrote 11 of the 16 tracks on his LP Religiously The Album coming out on May 12, 2023.
“The past two years of my life have been insane, and the fact that I get to release my first-ever album is so surreal. Thank you to everyone that has had my back through thick and thin. I will never be able to repay y’all for the love and support; this album is for you.”
Bailey recorded Rock after hearing Heath Warren perform it on his Instagram page.
“When I listen to outside cuts, I’m listening for the very first line. If it doesn’t grab me, I’m like, No. But as soon as I heard that on Heath’s Instagram, and I heard the line, like swinging and missing, I knew that I wanted to cut it. It was in the perfect key and everything.”

“Every day I wake up, and there’s more records we broke, there’s more streams, and we’re doing really big things, but it doesn’t feel like that. I still feel really normal, and I still feel like, Holy freakin crap, what is even going on? I wake up in Nashville every day, and I’m like, This is insane man.”
Morgan Wallen’s One Night At A Time tour includes opener Bailey Zimmerman.
One Night At A Time moves across Canada in the fall of 2023, with a stop in Calgary on September 30.
“I played my first arena show with Brooks & Dunn, and afterwards I got in the car to go to Chicago, and my managers called me, and they’re like hey, we got some crazy stuff. We had to turn down this one tour, and it was like one of my favorite artists, and I was like why? Why’d we turn it down? He said because Morgan Wallen’s gonna take you on tour next year. And I just started crying. My whole band, we started crying because it’s like man, this is why we work so hard, and we work day and night writing these songs and doing all this stuff. So, it’s gonna be a crazy year. I’m really excited”
“I‘ve been focusing on being in the moment and being here and really enjoying where I’m at. I’m excited to see how I grow as a person. What am I going to discover about myself that I didn’t know? What am I going to learn this year?”
