Born and raised in Kingsport, Tennessee, Brinley Addington's passion for Country music began well before the small town singer can even remember. At age three, Brinley began climbing on top of his parent's coffee table pretending he was performing on the Grand Ole Opry. Brinley was influenced early on by the hymns he heard on Sunday morning and the traditional country voices of Randy Travis, Vince Gill, and Alan Jackson. As time went by, Brinley gained inspiration from modern country artists like Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw as well as his parents' love of bluegrass music. At age 12, Brinley began singing at Church where he realized, what he feels to be, God's plan for his life: making music. One of Brinley's greatest musical influences came in the form of Josh Turner's "Your Man" album. Turner's blend of soulful, traditional country music, bluegrass, and rural subject matter became a key piece in the blueprint for what Brinley wanted to accomplish with his music. Since 2007, Brinley has had the honor of opening shows for several major artists such as Chris Young, The Band Perry, Marty Stuart, Jerrod Niemann, Gavin DeGraw, Jake Owen, John Michael Montgomery, Relient K, as well as Texas favorites Jack Ingram and the Casey Donahew Band, and has served as headliner at numerous fairs, festivals, and college events in the southeast. Brinley's first full-length album Homegrown debuted in May of 2011 and is garnering outstanding reviews from peers and music industry professionals alike. Homegrown produced two music videos ("Hang on a Farm," "As Long As You Love Me") that have already gained over 100,000 views. Addington is the newest addition to the roster of Razor & Tie Music Publishing's Nashville division and has recently signed a development deal with Artist Concepts. This August Brinley released the single, “Better on a Boat.”
