Brett Kissel is one of the top touring acts on the Canadian Country music scene and is on his way to becoming a household name across the United States. With songs like “Anthem” and “We Were That Song,” he has garnered tons of fans and he was actually our very first Swag Spotlight back in January of 2018. His latest song “Drink About Me” is his first single to be released in the states, alongside a brand new music video.
Kissel’s new single showcases the fact that we have all at some point drank about someone or to someone. Teaming up with his dear friends and Bachelor Nation fan-favorites, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick, Kissel makes his compelling story come to life. “Drink About Me” displays the common feeling of missing someone and thinking back on your favorite memories with that person and the feelings associated with that. “I am so excited to put out a brand new song into the musical universe. When you hear this song, I hope you’ll reminisce about your best days, happiest times, first kiss, longest kiss, and warmest embrace,” commented Kissel in a press release.
The video was shot on the romantic island of Andros in the Bahamas and showcases Bristowe and Tartick riding bikes, swimming, walking on the beach, climbing on rocks, and, of course, lots of drinking. Later in the video things quickly progress to laying in a hammock, a sweet kiss on top of a pool table, all leading up to the end, a passionate makeout session in the pool. Although you have to watch till the end for a twist.
Bristowe commented in a press release, “In this video, you are going to see some pretty heavy making out, a little drinking and beautiful views. I wanted to be part of this song because I knew it was about a love story and making memories.” Tartick also joined and stated, “Expect to see a very intimate relationship from all perspectives and in different sceneries. We’re just two people who are clearly in love and not afraid to show it.” That is exactly what this song is all about.
Considering how fast he is taking over Canada’s hearts, we have no doubt that this song will be showcased all over the states for people to hear. The 5x Canadian Country Music Award nominee and Apple Music Fans’ Choice winner is very excited to be making and releasing new music as well as adding new tour dates.
