Recently, famous singer-songwriter John Mayer shared his positive reaction to the new album called "The Great American Bar Scene," stressing his contribution to the recording of the song ‘Better Days.’ This work, which looks like both beautiful and significant to its creator, was released on July 4 by Warner Records.

Joining others on Thursday to positively review the album, Mayer took to X (formerly Twitter). "I always knew this song Zach wrote was special," he said. "I had no idea how beautiful, powerful and deep an album it would be a part of.

I’m stunned."

Another artist who commented on his own work was Mayer, who had a popular hit, "Your Body Is A Wonderland." "I’m blessed to have been able to fulfill my dreams of making music." he said, "What I never saw coming: to be asked to play with an artist as deeply tapped in as @zachlanebryan is.

Thank you for inviting me into your dream-coming-true."

Hope in Melody

However, "Better Days" may be considered as the hopeful proclamation in the middle of the generally pessimistic album as it asks people to enjoy the good moments, as they will not last long.

Mayer was not only the co-producer but also gave his musical input while playing the guitar on this soft number and even gave a strong solo on the guitar in the last line of the song. "The Great American Bar Scene" album embodies 19 tracks; 18 of them are songs and only one of them is a poem; however, early singles "Pink Skies" and "Purple Gas" are exceptional.

For those who like LM’s music and appreciate records, fans will have a chance to get a double album scheduled for October 10. Bryan is not idle now; he carries out his Quittin Time Tour while continuing recording his music.

The line-up of supporting acts for the tour includes Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Turnpike Troubadours, and The War & Treaty, thus making it an all-encompassing music event for fans.
