Praises continue to stack up for Bad Realm Records / Atlantic Records artist BRELAND who was named Breakthrough Artist for Amazon on Monday (2/14). “BRELAND is a streaming-music star,” says Rolling Stone as they first announced the news. BRELAND now joins the short list of artists earning this coveted all-genre nod aimed at “amplifying and championing” the best new talent. Previous Breakthrough Artists include Gabby Barrett, Blxst, Remi Wolf, Arlo Parks, and more.

The honor means BRELAND will now receive substantial support of Amazon Music – including marketing campaigns, increased playlist visibility, high-profile Amazon Original tracks and more. He’ll also be a featured guest on the Country Heat Weekly podcast.

Continuing to make headlines, BRELAND will make his Academy of Country Music Awards performance debut on March 7. Marking the first major Country awards show to be exclusively live streamed, BRELAND will bring his one-of-a-kind energy to Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium as he performs his brand-new song “Praise The Lord.” Only on Prime Video, the two-hour commercial-free show begins at 8 p.m. EST.

Already creating a buzz on socials, BRELAND teased “Praise The Lord” on TikTok and has received incredible feedback and love from his fans across all platforms. The jubilant track is set to release the day of his performance on the ACMs and can be pre-added/pre-saved here now: https://breland.lnk.to/PraiseTheLord

Fans can also catch BRELAND in a new episode of  My Opry Debut following his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry out last Friday (2/11), and he’ll also be recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s new American Currents: State of the Music exhibit. Opening March 4, the exhibit will feature BRELAND alongside collaborator and believer Keith Urban, in a section highlighting the connections between trailblazers of past, present, and future. The exhibit runs through February 5, 2023.

It’s all proof that BRELAND’s profile continues to grow exponentially. The PLATINUM-certified newcomer opened 2022 performing live on CBS’ New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash, and he is currently on the road for Russell Dickerson’s ALL YOURS, ALL NIGHT TOUR. See full list of tour stops here.
