Country-pop artist Brina Kay is fearless, accomplished, and ready to take on her next chapter as a flourishing singer-songwriter in Nashville.   Brina Kay will be releasing her debut EP "Dandelion"  this spring, but has just provided a sneak sample  with the two  singles,  “Rather Hurt You Now”, and "What I've Got" out now.

Brina’s single “What I’ve Got” is a great reminder that materialistic things are temporary and at the end of the day, they don’t make us spiritually or emotionally “rich.” 

In the verses, Brina sings about how she doesn’t have a mansion  or a sportscar, but how she has something better than all of the things you can buy. She mentions her faith, and family, and how this is all she needs to keep her going. In the choruses, she sings: “I’ve got faith and I’ve got drive/a rebel heart that beats, it keeps my dreams alive,” underlining the priorities in her life.

"This song signals a shift in the EP out of the “serious side” and into the fun side.   The song was originally titled 'The Gratitude Song' and was written at a time in her life and music career when she felt like she didn’t have much going for her and she was really trying her best to have a positive mindset. Instead of focusing on all of the obstacles she was facing and all the things she felt like she was lacking, she decided to write a song about what she was grateful for. 


With influences such as Natalie Maines of The Chicks, Kacey Musgraves, and Taylor Swift, Brina Kay’s music is empowering and thoughtful, with lyrics that will move you and make you reflect. Her fusion of County and  Pop, Country, and even dramatic musical theater stylization makes Brina stand out as an artist in the vast genre that is Country music. 


Brina got her start in entertainment growing up in Illinois, where she learned to play the violin. She then went on to pursue her education at The University of Nebraska Lincoln, where she collaborated with bands and found her true love for the arts through literature and music.

“I have always thought that music is what we turn to when words fail. I feel like it is something innately human, something that we’ve done across cultures for thousands of years. It brings people together, it helps people feel less alone, it’s something we turn to at the height of our happiness and the pit of our despair. I want to be a part of helping people feel that,”  Brina has stated.

Kay’s first release out of Nashville, "Horizon” charted on the highly acclaimed She Wolf Radio, which has featured rising country stars such as Tiera and Lainey Wilson. Kay's next two singles followed the same success, with "Heat of the Moment" reaching number eight and "Into the Sun" reaching number one. Brina has been featured in numerous publications including Chicago's Daily Herald and WGN News. Her music has regularly featured on iHeartRadio. 

Don't miss her debut EP "Dandelion"  this spring, and give a listen to her  the two  newly released singles,  “Rather Hurt You Now”, and "What I've Got".   Country music lovers should keep their eye on this talented emerging star and even better, let your ears and soul be immersed in her music.
