Brett Kissel Wins 2019 Juno and Receives Multiple Gold Certifications


The 2019 Juno Awards Sunday night capped off an amazing weekend for country singer Brett Kissel. Kissel was awarded the coveted Juno award for Country Album of the Year for his album “We Were That Song” ( ). This is the second Juno win for Kissel, who won a Juno in 2014 for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year”, the first country artist to win that in 17 years.

A couple days earlier Kissel was awarded a Gold record for his smash single “Anthem” (his seventh Gold record) and a “Double Road to Gold” plaque by CIMA (one of the few artists to qualify in the 12-month eligibility period) for his massive 2018 “We Were That Song” tour that saw him perform over a 110 dates in every province and territory in Canada.

“What an amazing weekend,” commented a jubilant Kissel. “I’ve worked so hard this past year and put so many miles on the tour bus. It’s wonderful to have this recognition from the industry and fans.”

Kissel wrapped up 2018 by being the most played Canadian artist at Canadian country radio, the most consumed male Canadian country artist (sales, downloads, streams), and had the most comprehensive tour in Canadian history, which included multiple shows in major markets across Canada.

The 2019 Juno Awards took place at Budweiser Gardens arena in London, Ontario and was televised live nationally on CBC.
