That tour comes to London Music Hall for 2 different dates in February 2018.
We’ve happened to notice online that some of our favourite local artists have decided to throw their hats in the ring, by covering a Brett Kissel song to enter the contest.
First up, is our Trackside Music Festival Homegrown Stage winner Melissa Megan, in a video featuring our buddy, Stratford, Ontario’s own Derek Caven.
Now, check out this video from Kitchener/Waterloo’s own Jessie T, who performed for us on the Moxie’s Downtown London patio this past summer.
Check out this video from Chatham-Kent’s own Brooklyn Roebuck, who we sometimes see hanging out at Cowboys Ranch when Weaver takes over the bar on Friday nights.
We think our friends The Small Town Girls did a great job showing off their talents in this video.
Brett Kissel is an awesome guy with a huge following, so whoever wins this contest is in for the opportunity of a lifetime.
Good luck everyone!
London, Ontario’s own Karen Emeny & Justine Chadillon put together this great Kissel cover.
