A native of Baytown, Texas, Breelan Angel’s career launched in 2012 with a radio single followed by opening spots for Loretta Lynn, Cody Johnson, Randy Rogers, and more. She was the first female artist to be signed to the Bud Light Texas Country Music Sponsorship and her singles “Halfway To Wasted” and “Double Standards” reached the Top 40 on the MusicRow Country Breakout chart while “Pocket Change” (written with Bri Bagwell) was a Top 20 on the Texas Regional Radio Report.
Angel’s latest EP is 2015’s Diamond In A Rhinestone World, a seven song disc which was produced by Trent Willmon and contains her latest single, “Rhinestone World.” Co-written with Lacy Green the well-crafted tune is a tribute, both lyrically and melodically, to those inspiring women, like Dolly, Loretta and Tammy, who took chances and succeeded. With a toe-tappin’, pickin’ melody “Rhinestone World” relates Angel’s feelings about women in the industry, with no-nonsense, candid lyrics (“Be their puppet on a string, So they can be the one who said, they turned me into an overnight success”). Yet, the song also has an encouraging message for every and any woman not to be afraid to stay true to themselves and do things their own way; as she sings with confidence, “Honey if it ain’t what you feel/it ain’t worth the raw end of a 360 deal.” Preach.
“They called Dolly a dumb blonde
They said that Tammy could dream on
They told Loretta she’d be better off not singing about the pill
That just goes to prove you can’t let other people chose what they think is right for you”
