NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 13, 2023) – Country singer-songwriter Brei Carter puts a slightly sultry, yet sophisticated southern touch on the Kris Kristofferson classic tune, “For The Good Times,” available everywhere digitally (orcd.co/forthegoodtimesbreicarter) via Brown Lee Entertainment & The Orchard on April 14. Today, fans can get their ears on the new tune in an exclusive premiere by The Country Note.
Carter cut the song with established Nashville producer and composer Curt Ryle (Taylor Swift, Pam Tillis, Brooks & Dunn) from his private studio in Clarksville. The song was first released by Bill Nash in 1968, but it was Ray Price who first turned it into a #1 country hit in 1970 with additional popularized recordings and versions of the song by Dolly Parton, Perry Como, Al Green and Wayne Newton.
“Life is a fleeting journey, and good times may not last forever, but the memories we create in those moments will stay with us for a lifetime,” Carter commented on the song’s meaning. “Cherish them, savor them, and let them warm your heart even when the skies turn gray.”
Single name: “For The Good Times”

About Brei Carter:
Emerging crossover country and southern pop recording artist Brei Carter 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 in his weekly DISClaimer review column for Music Row Magazine. Brei made her CMA Fest debut in 2022, along with a performance on WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour. Her growing catalog of new music includes her debut album Brand New Country, released in Fall 2022, and new music on the way in 2023 through her global music distribution deal with Brown Lee Entertainment and The Orchard. Carter is quickly proving herself to be a welcomed addition to the emerging new styles of country music in today’s diverse musical landscape.
