You all know Brett Kissel… Juno and Canadian Country Music Association award winner, good Canadian boy, husband, dad, cowboy hat wearer, Roots model, etc. – you know all that, but today we’ve got some new things for you to learn about the Pick Me Up singer.
We caught up with Brett during Canadian Country Music Week and asked him 5 questions we’ve never asked him before – plus a bonus question for all you hockey fans.
Ready? Let’s go!
Brett: The Eagles, Greatest Hits
We agreed with this one, and then started listing songs and I think we all started wishing we were listening to The Eagles right then.)
Q2: What is the first song you remember knowing all the words to?
Brett: Clearly Canadian by George Fox
We never would have guessed this one in a thousand tries, but LOVE that it’s so Canadian and so Brett Kissel.
Q3: What is your #1 hobby when you’re not working on or playing music?
Brett: Golf… he says he’s bad, but loves to play. We told him that his swing looks good in the still photos we’ve seen.
Q4: What is the one thing you need, need, need to have when you start a writing session?
Brett: My guitar
Brett told us that he’s written without the guitar before, but it’s just not the same, and he doesn’t really like it.
Q5: What artist should we be listening to right now that we might now be?
Brett: The Abrams, and their new song Champion.
We’ve known about The Abrams for a while now, and it’s pretty cool to hear Brett shout them out.
BONUS: Give us a prediction for the 2016-17 NHL season.
Brett: First, the Edmonton Oilers will get into the playoffs, just squeaking in. (no surprise to hear Brett say that). Second, Connor McDavid will finish the season with 100 or more points (that’s a strong prediction, I was a little wowed.)
Big thanks to Brett for playing along, we can’t wait for new music and the chance to see him play live again soon!
