Brett Kissel Announces Massive Canadian Winter Tour

Brett Kissel - the CCMA Awards' reigning Male Artist of the Year - has announced a three-month, 44-show Canadian tour beginning in January.

Last month at the CCMA Awards in Saskatoon, the Canadian hat star premiered his new single "We Were That Song" with a show-stopping performance live on the nationwide broadcast.

In addition to his second straight Male Artist of the Year win, the 27-year-old singer/songwriter also won trophies in the Music Video and Interactive Artist of the Year categories, bringing his career tally to 10 CCMA Award wins.

Country newcomer Dan Davidson, who recently celebrated his first gold-certified single with his hit “Found,” joins Kissel as a special guest on select dates on the burry winter dogsled.

"We Were That Song" is the first track to be released from Kissel’s forthcoming third studio album for Warner Music Canada.

Kissel is a mainstay on Canadian country radio with hits like "Started With A Song,” “3-2-1,” “Tough People Do,” “Airwaves,” “Pick Me Up” and “I Didn’t Fall In Love With Your Hair.”

In an interview earlier this week with the Regina Leader-Post, Kissel let this slide about the new album: “If we were toying with different sounds with previous records, well, we’re not skating around it anymore; we’re diving right into it. If I’m going to sing a love ballad, I’m going to make sure it tears at your heartstrings. If I’m going to do a party song, I’m going to make it an anthem.

“That’s been the goal, to take it to the furthest possible level that we can within our realm of possibility.”
