NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 1, 2022) – To acknowledge the start of Black History Month, country and southern pop singer-songwriter Brei Carter will release a new music video on February 1 for her heartfelt tribute to country music legend Charley Pride, with a fresh take on his #1 signature hit, “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin.’”

Like so many other African American musicians, singer-songwriters and recording artists, Brei’s long-standing admiration and respect for Charley Pride’s music legacy goes back as far as she can remember. Her father used to sing the song to her as a lullaby when she was a very young child, so it became one of the first songs she remembered the lyrics of. Brei’s own musical interpretation on the certified #1 classic country hit is fresh, upbeat and respectful to the song’s original composure.
“I honestly don’t know where to begin when it comes for my profound respect and admiration for Mr. Charley Pride,” Brei said. “His songs were some of my first memories of music as a young child, so when I decided I was going to take my shot as a Nashville-based country music artist, I just knew I had to record his signature song.”

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, where it eventually charted up to #71. With a growing catalog of new music she’ll release throughout 2022, including a debut EP/album, this young singer-songwriter is a welcome addition to the emerging new styles of the country music community.
