NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 21, 2024) – Country soul singer-songwriter and recording artist Brei Carter is set to host a groundbreaking new live music showcase, Country In Color, produced by Eric Byford of EBX Productions, and debuting on Thursday, February 29 from 7-11pm at Tin Roof Broadway in Nashville. The inaugural showcase will ignite the 2nd floor stage, featuring performances by genre bending artists Michael Rix, Kentucky Dom, Kobe Bailey, Brandon Bing, and ELEKTROHORSE. Plus, an enthralling finale after the showcase by mariachi country artist Rachel Rodriguez and her band.

“The Country In Color showcase’s goal is to become a window into the soul of Nashville’s evolving musical spirit,” said Carter. “With this initiative, Byford is sculpting a new narrative for Music City, one where diversity resonates and every melody is embraced. That is just something I wanted to be a part of!”

Country In Color aims to provide a vibrant platform for non-traditional multicultural artists, offering them an opportunity to showcase their talent and diversify Nashville’s renowned music landscape. In an evolving city where cultural diversity is increasingly celebrated, the showcase recognizes the need for a shift in the narrative, particularly within the downtown music scene.

“Nashville’s musical landscape is undergoing a vibrant transformation, mirroring the city’s blossoming diversity,” proclaimed Eric Byford, the visionary behind Country In Color. “Our endeavor is far beyond mere exhibition; it’s a movement to alter perceptions and foster unity among artists from every walk of life.”

About Brei Carter:
Genre blending country soul singer-songwriter Brei Carter is creating her own lane. She is proof that sometimes faith, patience and time pays off. Growing up in Monroe, Louisiana with a solid, southern upbringing, Brei’s family raised her on several authentic southern staples: the Bible, Lone Star Missionary Baptist Church’s choir, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, Aretha Franklin, and no shortage of familial love and devotion. However, before she became the dynamic and vivacious country singer she is today, Brei was busy earning a Bachelors in Business from University of Louisiana in Monroe, a Masters in International Relations from Webster University, and a Doctorate in Theology from New Foundation Theological Seminary. She is also a proud Veteran of the U.S. Army, where she served as an enlisted soldier and as an officer. Having moved to Nashville soon thereafter, Brei has quickly established herself in the songwriters community as a smooth and sometimes edgy songstress who melds country, soul and southern pop into one fused style. Her first single at country radio “Gave Him A Girl” was immediately recognized as “cute and catchy” by country music journalist and historian Robert K. Oermann from Music Row Magazine. She’s also been featured by TBN-TV’s Huckabee, RFD-TV, WSMV-TV, WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Billboard, Guitar Girl Magazine, Nashville.com, St. Louis Magazine, and others. Brei made her CMA Fest debut in 2022, and released her debut album Brand New Country, which included her fan-favorite cover of Charley Pride’s “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin,” and her life’s musical story “Stronger Than That.” In 2023 Brei released her latest original, “Straight Up Country Crazy,” which perfectly showcases her dynamic and jovial personality and her first Holiday EP, the critically acclaimed Twinkling Tales of Christmas. With a new album and new shows in the works for 2024, the future is looking up and bright for Brei and her journey as a songwriter. Carter has quickly proven herself to be a welcomed addition to the emerging new styles of country music in today’s diverse musical landscape in Nashville and beyond.
