“Heralding from the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Zachary Thomas Diedrich began playing music in the local taverns at the tender age of 14. After an eight year stint learning the ropes in a Wisconsin metal band, Zachary rediscovered his true musical roots playing Country and Blues. Building a loyal fan base performing solo shows, Diedrich decided to quit his day job, and with $350 in his pocket, he took up residence in Tennessee…Nashville that is. The move has served him well. Today, Zachary has four CD releases to his name and is ready to hit the studio to record his latest, "FOOT STOMPIN HONKY TONKIN COUNTRY". Touring with acts like Jason and the Punknecks, he is a slave to the road crisscrossing the Deep South in his pickup truck, playing bars and honky tonks with some of the South’s best. Reviewers have captured his style the best: "Seeing ZTD live is like seeing a reincarnation of Johnny Cash with a Jennings’ edge”, “True grit country”.”
"A BREATH OF FRESH AIR" "SEEING ZTD LIVE IS LIKE SEEING A REINCARNATION OF JOHNNY CASH WITH A JENNINGS EDGE" "TRUE GRIT COUNTRY" "SURE DOES STOMP THE HELL OUTA THAT STOMP BOX"
