Some would imagine that Brett Kissel is settling perfectly into the role of one of the nation’s leading country music creatives, but settling is not a word in Kissel’s vocabulary. In fact, with his new album in tow, just ask him: he’s only just begun!
Over the past few years, the country crooner has received an armful of Canadian Country Music Association Awards, (including two straight wins for Male Artist of the Year and the coveted Fans’ Choice). Brett was the recipient of the Allan Slaight Honor from Canada’s Walk of Fame (previously presented to Drake, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd), the Breakthrough Artist of the Year winner at the JUNO Awards, and was recognized as the International Artist of the Year at the Worldwide Radio Summit in Hollywood, California (an honor bestowed upon Ed Sheeran and Adele in the last two years respectively).
Keeping his own ear-to-the-ground, Kissel has learned the delicate art of entertaining and ultimately gives his listeners what they want to experience – especially with his latest album We Were That Song. Production of this album brought the mastery that is Grammy Award Winner Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton), long-time collaborator Bart McKay (multiple CCMA Award Winner), as well as Kissel’s own bandmates – Justin Kudding, Spencer Cheyne, and Matty McKay – to co-produce and complete the studio team.
