Country music has so many influences nowadays. You hear elements from rock, pop, hip-hop and R&B within the format, which has helped introduce the genre to new listeners.

There are few artists in the country format with as much musical range as Breland.

Breland's viral smash "My Truck" was released independently in 2019 and later released as a major label single in 2020 by Atlantic Records and Bad Realm.

Breland would eventually sign with Warner Music Nashville and has become of the brightest new stars in Nashville.

His new album Cross County was released in September, which features 14 tracks with hitmaker songwriters such as Ashley Gorley, HARDY, David Garcia, Rocky Block, Greylan James, ERNEST, Ingrid Andress, Charles Kelly and so many more.

The collaborations on the project are long, with Keith Urban, Mickey Guyton, Lady A, Thomas Rhett and Ingrid Andress all singing on different tracks.

The album is a musical journey with different sounds that makes it appealing to fans with different musical tastes; filled with amazing melodies, clever lyrics and even sampling, which is what we get with "County Line," sampling Sylvia's famous country pop hit from 1982, :"Nobody."

Breland's debut country radio single is "For What It's Worth" and impacts this Monday, October 17th.

"For What It's Worth" has some of the best lyrics you'll hear all year, showing vulnerability and honesty from the narrator -- that he didn't appreciate the relationship he once had and realizes the mistakes that were made.

The song was written by Breland with Greylan James, Jacob Durrett and Rocky Block. The opening lyrics are nothing short of genius.

"Bad habits, my second chances always turn into three and four
Late nights, all them back and forth fights finally turn into heartbreak war"

Breland joined WYRK this week on the "Nine O'clock News" and talked about "For What It's Worth," Cross Country and the incredible tracks with Mickey Guyton and Lady A.

You can hear "For What It's Worth" tomorrow morning at 9 am on WYRK.
