Riding high with his first Platinum record, “My Truck,” breakout talent Breland shares his autobiographical follow-up single “Cross Country”. Released via Bad Realm Records/Atlantic Records, the soul-baring and storytelling-fueled track is available to stream/download HERE.
“Cross Country” serves as a statement of purpose for Breland. True to the double meaning of its title, the acoustic-guitar-laced track finds him reflecting on the action-packed journey to this point in his career – an adventure that’s taken him from New Jersey to Atlanta to Hollywood to his current home of Nashville – while boldly stating his refusal to conform to any genre or style.
The fresh track is written by Breland, Sam Sumser, Sean Small, and Will Gittens and produced by Sumser and Small (whose shared credits include Keith Urban, Jason Derulo, and Austin Mahone).
“‘Cross Country’ the song is my personal story about how I became an artist, but Cross Country the movement is about redefining genre to dismantle music boundaries and inspire dialogue,” shared Breland with Spotify’s Hot Country.
Directed by James Larese (an award-winning filmmaker who’s directed videos for artists like Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and Imagine Dragons), the video for “Cross Country” features Breland living in a split screen dichotomy of two separate lives: one he lives now as a fast-rising artist, and what could have been had he not followed his dream to pursue music.
