I was a sweaty mess last night at the Carp Fair - but I gave the crowd every ounce of energy I had! It was a memory and a moment in music and time I'll never forget. (And I've never heard "We Were That Song" sung so loud!)

Kevin, my tour manager doesn't realize that flights to Ottawa leave at reasonable times too. Instead, he believes that 5AM flights are the only flights available. 3AM lobby calls are such joys. (Luckily I have a sold out show to get to in Ottawa tonight!  So that'll put me in a good mood!) @KevinBusheyTM

What makes our province so special is the fact that we, as Albertans, are so passionate about "giving back". Tonight, in Edmonton, I get to be a part of a special event that is raising money for Alberta kids and Alberta families.  They're calling it "an intimate evening with Brett Kissel", which may sound like an unwanted bedroom rendezvous to some - but is indeed - a special opportunity for me to share songs and stories onstage for a great cause. Danny Hooper, one of North America's best emcees and auctioneers is our host tonight which means we are definitely in for a brilliant evening.  Thank you Keelie Stachniak and ProStar Well Service in Leduc, thank you Edmonton, thank you Alberta, and let's raise some BIG MONEY for families in need! #GivingBack

I feel bad for all the "Under 19" fans who can't see me perform tomorrow at the Carp Fair.  So I've spoken with the organizers of the Carp Fair as well as our presenting radio station New Country 94 about doing something special tomorrow.  Stay tuned, and stay close to my Instagram / Facebook / and Twitter accounts. We'll have more details tomorrow. - BK •

To me, it's the little things that matter the most. So during the Canadian Country Music Awards I asked my entire band and crew to support our new song: "We Were That Song" - by wearing their favorite band shirt, and pumping out favorite songs in the dressing room. •
•
I felt that by wearing our favorite bands or artists onstage or backstage, we would be channeling our inner rock stars and thus, deliver our best performance ever. Also, by wearing those names and those logos over our hearts we would be paying tribute to them and their lyrics - who made us who we are today. •
•
Come show day, I found it very interesting what bands and artists my team selected. From Joel Bird's protest - wearing 'STAR WARS' (which made us all laugh) to Tyler Vollrath's choice to rep Brad Paisley onstage - I couldn't have been more proud thanking these game changers in our own little way. •

Elderly friends of mine always pass on the same advice: "Take lots of pictures". So, here's one I'm really proud of. In the middle of the hustle and bustle backstage at the CCMA's, we chaotically coordinated a group shot. (I'm just sad Cecilia and Jim Cressman were missing...)

At the CCMA's, one of the first things I noticed was this young cowboy kid, with a black hat like mine, sitting on his Dad's shoulders. I waved at him a couple times throughout the performance, and then decided I wanted to make his CCMA experience a little extra special!

After an amazing Sunday night at the CCMA's, Cecilia and I got to bed at almost 4AM.  We then were awake at 6AM, and flying home by 7AM.
