In the heart of Monroe, Louisiana, amidst the nurturing embrace of the Deep South, Brei Carter was born into a world where faith, music, and love intertwine like the roots of ancient oaks. Raised on a rich diet of gospel hymns from the Lone Star Missionary Baptist Church, the soul-stirring melodies of Charley Pride and Loretta Lynn, and the powerful voice of Aretha Franklin, Brei’s life was been rooted in strong southern tradition and unwavering familial devotion. This foundation, layered with the sacred words of the Bible, became the bedrock of her journey.

But Brei’s path was anything but ordinary. With a relentless spirit, she pursued education with the same fervor she held for music, earning a Bachelor’s in Business from the University of Louisiana in Monroe, a Master’s in International Relations from Webster University, and a Doctorate in Theology from New Foundation Theological Seminary. Her service in the U.S. Army, both as an enlisted soldier and an officer, further shaped her resilience and dedication. 

Upon setting her boots in Nashville, Brei Carter carved a niche for herself as an exquisite country soul singer-songwriter, blending the threads of country, soul, and southern pop into an electrifying tapestry of sound. Her debut single, “Gave Him A Girl,” captured hearts with its charm, earning praise for its catchy sincerity. Esteemed voices in the music world, including Music Row Magazine’s Robert K. Oermann and platforms like TBN-TV’s Huckabee, RFD-TV’s Market Day Report, The Bluegrass Situation and Billboard have all recognized her unique blend of storytelling and melody.

Brei’s journey through music is a testament to the power of dreams and the courage to chase them. Her first album, Brand New Country, not only paid homage to her roots with a beloved cover of Charley Pride’s “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’,” but also narrated her indomitable spirit in “Stronger Than That.” The release of “Straight Up Country Crazy” in 2023 revealed the vibrancy and depth of her character, while her Twinkling Tales of Christmas EP brought warmth and joy to the holiday season.

As she looks to the future, with new EPs and shows on the horizon for 2024, Brei Carter stands as a beacon of hope and perseverance. Her story is a poignant reminder that with faith, patience, and time, dreams do flourish. It’s a narrative that doesn’t just tug at the heartstrings; it resonates with the soul, echoing the timeless truth that no matter where life takes us, our roots and our wings are equally important in the journey of becoming who we are meant to be.
