CMT Music Awards could cement country music superstardom for BRELAND, the 26-year-old performer born in New Jersey and now based in Nashville.
He’s overwhelmed by his three award nominations, but that isn’t to say this level of success wasn’t in his plan all along.
“I didn’t have a ton of specific checkpoints in my plan, but I knew that if I had a clear mission statement, everything I wanted to happen would happen,” says the artist who just returned from a successful C2C Festival appearance at London’s O2 Arena.
What was that mission statement?
“I wanted to come into country music with a fresh perspective and find a way to make the genre more inclusive while also reaching new audiences.”
