American Heartbreak is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Zach Bryan, released on May 20, 2022, through Belting Bronco and Warner Records. It is a triple album and Bryan's major-label debut. The album was preceded by six singles, including Bryan's most successful single to date, "Something in the Orange", which reached number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Bryan toured the US until November 2022 in support of the record.
Bryan explained that the album "explores the past five years" of his life, further calling it his "effort at trying to explain what being a 26-year-old man in America is like. There's love, loss, revelry, resentment, and forgiveness all wrapped into one piece of work". The Tennessean wrote that the album ranges "from demo-like ruminations to full-fledged heartland rock anthems" as well as an "untamed restlessness and blurry-eyed angst".
American Heartbreak debuted at number five on the US Billboard 200 with 71,500 album-equivalent units, including 6,000 pure album sales, making it the biggest first week for a country album in 2022. On the day of its release, American Heartbreak achieved the most streams of any country album in 2022 on both Spotify and Apple Music.
