Brett Kissel, who will release his upcoming album We Were That Song on Dec. 8, recently stopped by the MusicRow magazine offices to offer a preview of tracks from the album. The album includes collaborations with Megadeath’s Dave Mustaine, and country legend Charley Pride.

Kissel is a Canada native, though he and his family moved to Nashville in 2012. He is the reigning CCMA Male Artist of the Year.

He offered renditions of his current single, “We Were That Song,” penned by Jonathan Singleton, as well as the biographical “Nights In The Sun.” Kissel notes that his grandfather offers words of wisdom at the end of the track. He also offered the song “Airwaves.”

During the visit, Kissel also discussed opening 16 shows for Garth Brooks’ World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. Kissel, who is also managed by Brooks’ manager Bob Doyle, opened several shows for Brooks in Canada, and was welcomed onstage during “Callin’ Baton Rouge” to perform the song with the superstar during his show. Kissel also revealed that Brooks gave him the signed guitar he played during his performance.

Kissel has upcoming shows at Nashville music venue The Basement on Nov. 27 and Dec. 14.
