Building on the original version’s gritty guitar work and hard-hitting beats, “My Truck (feat. Sam Hunt) [Remix]” further reveals BRELAND’s genre-bending ingenuity and supreme skill as a songwriter. In a perfect counterpart to the 24-year-old artist’s powerful vocals, multi-platinum-selling hitmaker Hunt turns in a soul-stirring performance showcasing the incredible range that’s earned him multiple Grammy Award nominations. The collaboration follows the release of Hunt’s chart-topping sophomore album SOUTHSIDE.
As noted by The New York Times, Hunt took notice of “how quickly and freely Breland improvised melodic lines” and for him “it was a rare opportunity to collaborate with someone who approached the country-rap divide from the other side.”
Seeing Hunt’s support as a stamp of approval, BRELAND shares “Sam is one of my favorite artists and a pioneer in country music. I couldn’t think of a more fitting artist to be on this type of genre-bending song. I think he brings an incredible energy to it!”

Continuing the excitement, BRELAND’s debut EP is expected for release in May.
