Brett Kissel’s brand new song “Make A Life, Not A Living” is available now, March 5th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
A major success already in his home country of Canada, Brett Kissel looks to have the same impact on country music in the states. His charismatic personality, energetic stage presence, and talented music style has led him to the top of Canadian country music charts, with two Gold-certified albums, a Platinum single, eight Gold Singles, and 15 top-10 radio hits.
Between 2019 and 2020, Kissel took home several awards including the JUNO Award (the equivalent to an American GRAMMY) for Country Album of the Year for We Were That Song, and won the Canadian Country Music Association’s (CCMA) Fan’s Choice Award, Male of the Year, and Album of the Year. This was Kissel’s second JUNO Award, his first being for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2014, which made him the first country artist to take home the title in 17 years, the last being Shania Twain.
The talented singer-songwriter joined us back in 2019 for an interview and acoustic performance. Check it out in the video below.
Today, Kissel introduces fans to a brand new song, “Make A Life, Not A Living”, the first single off Kissel’s forthcoming album, What Is Life?, due out April 9th. The song is about filling your life with experiences and moments with the people you love and not determining your life’s value by dollar amounts and materialistic items. It’s a reminder to be happy with all that you do have and to not worry about what you don’t. When it comes down to it, you can’t take anything with you when you go so you might as well spend your time focused on making a life, not a living.
“I’m good with what the good Lord’s given / dirt under my boots, and the air i’m breathing / Lose every penny, I’d still be winning / I’m tryna make a life, not a living”
