Brett Kissel today releases his fifth major label studio album What Is Life? (LISTEN HERE).
“That age-old question is one that I’ve really focused on and centered around for this next phase of my career and for my life,” says Brett. “And each and every time, the one thought that is always front and center for me, is doing the best we can with what we have, and making the most of our lives. I hope that everyone who hears it not just enjoys it, but is also inspired by it.”
Last month, Brett unveiled the first single, “Make A Life, Not A Living,” accompanied by the official music (WATCH HERE). “Make A Life, Not A Living” set history upon its release, picking up the most adds ever in a single week at Canadian country radio.
Brett recently picked up his fifth career JUNO Award nomination. His chart-topping single “Drink About Me” is nominated in the prestigious Single of the Year category.
If you’re a fan of country music, you probably already know Brett Kissel’s story – owned his first guitar before he was even in school, released his first album before he could even drive – leading to him becoming Canada’s most dynamic country music artist before he turned 30 years old. The farm-and-ranch-raised artist has 15 top 10 radio singles, 3 #1 songs, and a tractor bucket full of gold and platinum plaques. He set records on his 112-date cross-country tour, played over 20 shows with his hero Garth Brooks, and has won 18 CCMA Awards and 2 JUNO Awards.
While fans were still buzzing about last year’s Now Or Never album, Brett started looking towards his next release, but couldn’t get three words out of his head – What Is Life? The search for something “more” weighed heavily on the country star’s mind and with the new album, Brett Kissel invites fans to take a deep-dive with him into songs about love, celebration and gratitude.
