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 16 top 10 radio singles, 4 #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.

Last year’s Now Or Never album featured some of his biggest hits to date – “Drink About Me,” “She Drives Me Crazy” and “A Few Good Stories” – and helped him obtain massive exposure in the U.S. for the first time in his career, including multiple performances on The Grand Ole Opry. 

While fans were still buzzing about that 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.

“I’m curious in a new way,” Kissel says. “I’m entering a new era in my life, and I'm going to attempt to ask this old-as-time question: What Is Life? This latest album is a deep-dive into love, celebration, grace, gratitude, and hard truths.” 

Brett Kissel is running a major vibe-check with his audience and beginning to process gratitude and the role he plays in his fans’ lives and in their playlists. From turning 30 this year, celebrating 10 years of marriage with his wife Cecilia, and by creating three special, bubbly, and blonde-topped children — he is inching closer to being able to come up with an answer for himself — but hopes to inspire his fans and provoke conversation.
