Brett Kissel’s playlist

Canadian country music star Brett Kissel just won the Juno Award for Country Album of the Year for his record We Were That Song.

This is Brett’s second Juno win. He won Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2014, the first country music act to win the award in nearly two decades.

Just a couple days prior to the 2019 Juno Awards, Brett was awarded a Gold record for his hit single “Anthem” making this his 7th Gold record.

In addition to his Juno Awards and gold records, Brett has won 13 Canadian Country Music Awards including 2016’s and 2017’s Male Artist of the Year.

Recently, things have really taken off for Brett, but the 28-year-old has been at it for a while now.

“Country music has been running deep in my veins for a long time,” Brett says.

The 28-year-old Juno winner released his first album Keepin’ It Country in 2003 when he was just 12.

“I was about to turn 13,” Brett remembers. “It was a cassette tape of all cover songs… Johnny Cash, Faron Young, Merle Haggard, Charley Pride.”

Brett went on to release three more independent albums before signing a record deal with Warner Music in 2013 and making it big.

To highlight Brett’s beginnings (and how far he has come), here is a playlist of hits by some of the artists he covered on his debut cassette back in the day.

Just Between You and Me – Charley Pride
It’s Four in the Morning – Faron Young
He’ll Have to Go – Jim Reeves
I Walk the Line – Johnny Cash
El Paso – Marty Robbins
Mama Tried – Merle Haggard
My Swiss Moonlight Lullaby –Wilf Carter
