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.

Country Singer-Songwriter Brei Carter Uplifts On Soulful Country Heartbreak Tune “Paybacks,” Available NOW!

“…feisty and fierce on this kiss-off power ballad.”
– Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Magazine

“…a somewhat sassy look at the idea of karma, it’s also a song of power, with potent lyrics that encourage listeners to find the strength to take hold of their life once again.”
– Tricia Despres, St. Louis Magazine

“Paybacks” lyric video exclusively premiered by St. Louis Magazine

“Paybacks” available everywhere digitally NOW at linktr.ee/breicarter;
and to country radio programmers via PlayMPE

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 11, 2022) – Country and southern pop singer-songwriter Brei Carter has released her 10th single “Paybacks” across all major digital music platforms, or at linktr.ee/breicarter. The song is also available to radio programmers and industry via PlayMPE

Today, the song’s new lyric video exclusively premiered by St. Louis Magazine, where she also chatted with renowned country music journalist Tricia Despres about her blossoming music career in Nashville, and her current home just outside of St. Louis. 

The mid-tempo soulful country tune finds the Louisiana native and ambitious songstress doing what she does best; charming with her uplifting voice, authentic personality, and clever use of lyrics to tell stories. Even on a song which deals with the leftover feelings, emotions and memories from a relationship gone wrong, her listener is uplifted and left with a feeling that better days are ahead.   

Working with Nashville based songwriters Jason Campbell and Terry Smith on the song, Carter felt the song resonated with her because when they sat down to write it, she wanted to write a song with a little more soul to it. 

“I wanted to tell a story which friends have shared with me, personally,” Carter explains. “People talk about Karma and it’s a real thing. Growing up I’ve always been taught to treat people how I wanted to be treated. The basis of the song talks about reaping what you’ve sown, so treat people right! Unfortunately you never know what your payback could be. Remember vengeance doesn’t belong to the person wronged, but belongs to God.”

Single Name: “Paybacks’”
Audio release date: May 06, 2022
Songwriters: Brei Carter, Jason Campbell, Terry Smith
ISRC#: USDY42213314

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.’” 

The video made its exclusive digital premiere on Feb. 1 by Nashville’s Center Stage Magazine, followed by its network TV premiere on The Country Network Wednesday, February 2 at 12:13p & 6:50p ET, with encore airings throughout the week.

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.

“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.”
