Alberta Pride Artist: Brett Kissel
From Flat Lake, Alberta.
The 29-year-old singer/songwriter has been the country music story of the past few years – winning a JUNO Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year – the first country artist to win the coveted award in 17 years! The Canadian Kid also won 2 awards at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards – for CMT Video of the Year and Interactive Artist of the Year, after recording 8 nominations.
The trophy case got a little brighter when Kissel took home a Canadian Radio Music Award – for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in Country Music, on top of 5 Association of Country Music in Alberta Awards, and 2 Edmonton Music Awards.
With countless sold-out shows across North America, Kissel was indeed a “Breakthrough Artist!”
As of 2019, this guy is everywhere. He has 7 albums out to date, an enormous tour and he won the Juno award for Country Album of the Year and CCMA’s Fan’s Choice.
He’s the Alberta Artist to watch.
