Meet Country’s Newest Heartthrob: Brennin


Brennin is the newest country guy to keep on your radar, but it isn’t just because of his smoldering good looks (let’s be honest, those don’t hurt). He’s a down-to-earth, fun guy with a voice that will turn you into a puddle. You may recognize Brennin from his guest role on the TV show “Nashville” or from when he was a contestant on the talent competition “The X Factor.” He’s truly a triple-threat: singer, songwriter, and actor.

Brennin’s self-titled EP came out earlier this year, but his favorite career achievement to date is having Vince Gill record a song that they wrote together. Brennin, originally from Oklahoma like Vince, had admired him for years and finally got the chance to work with him about 3 years ago.

“I had his cell phone number for 3 months before I even called him, ‘cause I’m like ‘how do you call Vince Gill?’” said Brennin.

He finally got up the nerve with some encouragement from his wife and he left a message for Vince. Before he knew it, he was at Vince’s house writing songs. As they wrapped up the last writing session, Vince told Brennin that he was considering cutting one of their songs for his own project. Fast forward to February of this year, Vince Gill released his “Down to My Last Bad Habit” album with the song he co-write with Brennin, called “I Can’t Do This.”

Brennin said,

“It blew my mind, being here 9 years and working really hard to break into this business. I can’t find a better scenario for my first cut to ever have success as a songwriter than to be with my hero, Vince Gill.”

On Sunday night, Brennin opened for the classic rock band America and the iconic Michael McDonald at the Woods at Fontanel in Nashville.

“I really like how laid back they are with their approach,” said Brennin, talking about the band America, whom he’s opened for on several occasions. “It’s real relaxed and real fun. There’s something to be said about just walking out on stage, picking up instruments, not having any computers or tracks to hide or mask what you do. It’s just vocals and being a human being.”

This venue didn’t have a backstage area, so Brennin suggested doing our interview in his car. As we were chatting, James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” series came to mind, so I challenged Brennin to share his best cover. Brennin cranked up the classic Boyz II Men hit “I’ll Make Love to You” and sang his heart out! You can watch the intimate performance video on our Facebook page.

When Brennin took the stage, he engaged the crowd with just an acoustic guitar and his soulful voice, showcasing his songwriting skills and impeccable vocals. Audience members commented that they were pleasantly surprised that he wasn’t just a pretty face, but a man who could hold his own in a lineup of legendary artists.

Heavily influenced by artists like the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, you can hear the vintage 70s vibe with a punch of contemporary country and R&B in Brennin’s music. If you haven’t heard his tunes before, he recommends listening to the song “Lose My Cool” first.

“Of all the songs I’ve ever written, I think it’s my staple song as far as the sound of what I’m trying to do.”
