The summer of 2022 has been a solid year for Okotoks-based Singer-songwriter Brettyn Rose, and the best is still on the horizon.

Featured on the CF Chinook Stampede Breakfast stage, countless performances throughout the foothills, and a new single to top it off.

All in between Dawgs game where she sings the anthem. To say the least, she's been busy and the summer isn't over yet.

"I'm heading up to Big Valley Jamboree to emcee and perform in the Horizon Talent Showcase on Thursday, so I'm very, very excited to be a part of that festival. I'm also heading down to Mossley on Friday to play at that bar with Chase Morgan and then on Saturday I'm heading up to Drumheller to play music in the park."

Her spot with Big Valley Jamboree as well as her latest collaborations with young locals is important for her to learn with other up-and-comers.

"As young developing artists, we're all going through the same things of trying to figure out our careers and trying to figure out what to do next. So I really love this supporting and encouraging of one another because we're all experiencing the same things. 

"So why not help each other out?"

She will also be featured in this year's Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) which will be held in Calgary this September.

Then there is her new music.

Her latest single Almost Love (available everywhere) pulls from that silly feeling you get from meeting someone special.

"It’s all of those like warm, fuzzy, happy feelings that you get when you're starting to get to know someone new that could potentially develop into maybe a new relationship or a new love interest. Just riding a high that whole time. There's kind of like this magic in the unknown of not knowing where it's going."

It's been out for a little over a month now.

"It's doing super well and I've gotten a really good response on it and I'm super happy that it's out in the world finally."

Real-life emotion and relatable storytelling are aspects that set her music apart and are always integrated it into her songs. Because of this, some songs hit a little harder than others like her 2019 hit Running out of Borrowed Time, which got her nominated for the Rising Star Award at the 2021 Country Music Alberta Awards and two 2020 YYC Music Award nominations, or 2021's personal growth anthem Making Progress. 

She's come a long way from that first radio spot in 2016. Even then at the age of 15, we knew she'd be going places! 

"I love everyone at the Eagles so much. You were the very first radio station to ever bring me into the studio or play my songs or interview me and like I appreciate and I'm so thankful for you guys to support me over all of these years and I love you guys so much."
