The Town of Sedgewick has announced that the Canadian Country Music Association’s reigning “Male Artist of the Year”, Brett Kissel, will be playing the Wild Rose Co-op Recreation Centre in Sedgewick, Alberta on Saturday, November 10th as part of his “We Were That Song” Tour. Kissel is one of the nation’s leading country music creatives and is well known for the steamroll intensity he brings to each show. He has also received an armful of other CCMA awards including the 2017 Video of the Year with “I Didn’t Fall in Love With Your Hair”, the 2016 “Fan’s Choice Award” and “Interactive Artist of the Year” from 2014 to 2017.
The stop in Sedgewick is part of the second leg of Kissel’s current tour which sees him visit every province and territory in the nation and includes more than 30 additional dates including the likes of Whitehorse, Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Prince George and Kelowna. Kissel is known internationally for his long string of hits, always accompanied by a powerful video, that have most recently included the songs “Anthem”, “We Were That Song”, “Pick Me Up”, “Airwaves”, “Raise Your Glass”, and “3-2-1”.
Kissel and his bandmates will take to Campbell-McLennan Chrysler Stage at 9pm on November 10th with doors opening at 7pm. Special guest Julian Austin will be playing as the opening act and fans will be treated to his own #1 hit with “Little Ol’ Kisses” which won him CCMA’s “Best Country Single” in 1998. Austin is a big supporter of the military and has made a number of trips overseas to support our troops making him an ideal fit for Remembrance Day weekend.
