“Most of my career highlights have been experienced at the CCMAs, whether those were meeting some of my favorite artists, performing collaborations with Hall of Famers, or rocking out on the biggest stage in Canadian country,” says Brett. “This year, with 8 nominations, I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to roll into Edmonton, my hometown, and experience what’s yet to come with my friends and family by my side.”

Brett Kissel is THE Canadian country music story of the past year. The Flat Lake native overcame the odds of making it out of small town Alberta to sign a major label recording contract as well as finding a home with the same management company that helped guide the career of Garth Brooks. In March, Brett became the first country artist to be awarded with the JUNO for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 17 years. His singles “Started With A Song” and “3-2-1” were both Top 3 radio hits and both reached No. 1 on CMT’s Chevrolet Top 20 Countdown.
