"New" Artist of the Month for August 2021


Breland is a country and R&B artist, originally from Burlington Township, New Jersey. He is a singer and songwriter, who’s style has been described as country-trap, which is a relatively new genre that combines elements of country and hip-hop together seamlessly. He describes it as cross country, which he says combines country with all other forms of music.

Breland is one of the best up-and-coming artists in country music. He released two EP’s within a month of each other in 2020, and his debut EP, ‘Breland,’ peaked at 48 on the US Country charts. He has released four singles, including ‘My Truck’ in 2019, which was certified platinum in America and has racked up over 51 million views on YouTube.


Outside of performing, Breland is also an accomplished songwriter, helping write two songs for country powerhouse Keith Urban on his latest album. He also hosts a radio show on Apple Music Country called ‘Land of the Bre.’

Breland has performed with some of the best in country music today, including Urban, Dierks Bentley, HARDY, and Sam Hunt. In 2021, he had the honor of performing with Mickey Guyton, who he featured on his single, “Cross Country”, and Gladys Knight at the 2021 CMT Music Awards.
