Warner Music Canada recording artist Brett Kissel is set to head on a coast-to-coast fall tour, opening for one of the world's biggest names in country music, Brad Paisley.
The Canadian tour begins October 2 in Victoria, BC, with more dates to be announced soon. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, June 6, or Saturday, June 7.
"Words cannot describe how excited I am to be hitting the road with Brad Paisley this fall," says Brett. "I have been a fan of Brad's since I saw him perform 10 years ago at the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, Alberta. Meeting him a year later in Nashville was a fantastic experience too - simply because he took the time to talk with a youngster like me. He didn't need to ask me about what kind of guitar I played, or who my favourite singer was. But he left a lasting impression on me, and now, fast forward 10 years, I get to share the stage with him, on his cross-Canada tour!"
Brad Paisley will visit Canada as part of his Country Nation World Tour. The 3x-Grammy, 14x-Academy of Country Music Award, and 14x-Country Music Association winner has had a staggering 18 singles reach No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Brett Kissel is THE Canadian country music story of the past year. The Flat Lake native overcame the odds of making it out of small town Alberta to sign a major label recording contract as well as finding a home with the same management company that helped guide the career of Garth Brooks. In March, Brett became the first country artist to be awarded with the JUNO for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 17 years, and his singles “Started With A Song” and “3-2-1” were both Top 3 radio hits.

Music media has heard the new LP album and to put it mildly, they like what they hear. Check out some of the things that they're saying...
Linkin Park have dropped the electronics of their previous two records and have rededicated themselves to making rock and roll. In short, they’ve found their balls, and they’re taking those balls and going balls to the wall. - VICE
It’s all about the guitars, the drums and vocals, and the rough around the edges approach is a welcome return. - Renowed For Sound
The new Linkin Park single "Guilty All the Same" (Machine Shop/Warner Bros.) is stunning in its toughness, more like they created a new genre - Newsday
It's no easy task for a band that has put out so much music to include so many songs from its present and even future, but Linkin Park did its best to give older fans what they came for, while giving them a glimpse of what they could expect from the new record - PHX New Times
Having stripped back the looped guitars and synthesized beats of 2012’s LIVING THINGS, the LA six-piece took cues from the more aggressive elements of their record collection, including Texas punks At The Drive-In and alt-metallers Helmet. The result is their heaviest album to date - Q magazine
While Linkin Park's dive into hard noise may drive away some recent fans, the move could draw even more listeners by filling a vacuum in a genre that's been limping in pop's shadow for years - USA Today
This being Linkin Park, it probably took a lot of painstaking preparation to sound so spontaneous. Even so, this works on both a cerebral and a gut level, and is undoubtedly the heaviest thing they’ve ever done. – Kerrang
Linkin Park are meticulous architects. They think nothing of spending days, weeks and months constructing their towering cathedrals of sound and chipping away at their pristine sonic sculptures. The results have often been stunning, but they rarely sound unfettered, instinctive or violently visceral. - Kerrang
