From Flat Lake, Alberta.
The 25-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 a Juno nomination for “Country Album of the Year.” He’s THE Alberta Artist to watch.
