Country star Breland made his mark on the music scene when the singer’s song “My Truck” landed as a platinum record in 2020, but that doesn’t mean everyone is singing along to it. In fact, the singer admits that his own father does not know the lyrics to his songs.
Breland’s vocal talent was nurtured from an early age, growing up in a family of gospel singers. The singer often posts videos on his family team’s social networks harmonizing with their gospel favorites.
However, the gospel music his family is used to is not quite like Breland’s country flavor meets trap and R&B.
During an interview with Taste of Country ahead of the 2021 CMA Awards, the singer shared that his family are very supportive, but they don’t go around the house singing his songs. In fact, he realized that his father didn’t even know the lyrics to his songs.
“It was funny, because I played a show in Philly, it was kind of like my show in my hometown. My parents and my whole family are out, ”the singer explained.
“We were singing backstage, and I realized my dad didn’t know any of the words to any of those songs.”
Breland understands that his type of music is not what his parents are used to singing, and he doesn’t mind.
“I wasn’t even offended by that,” he said with a laugh. “I was like, ‘I don’t need you to know that, I know I have your support regardless. “But yeah, they sing their own stuff. It would be weird for them to sing ‘My Truck’, honestly.
Since “My Truck”, Breland has signed collaborations with country artists including Mickey Guyton, Dierks Bentley and most recently Keith Urban, with whom he recorded “Throw It Back”.
The New Year will find the singer on Russell Dickerson’s All Yours, All Night tour.
