Brittini Black is a young Country Music singer/songwriter who singing when she was two years old, and by age eight was singing intricate harmonies. By the time she was 12, as a member of a mother-daughter duo, a plan had been mapped out to pursue a career in Country Music. Over the next few years the duo opened for country acts including Lonestar, Sammy Kershaw, Billy Ray Cyrus and Kenny Rogers. One of their most memorable performances was as the opener for Diamond Rio at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Brittini moved to Nashville in late 1998 and attended Belmont University, widely known for its prestigious music performance and music business programs, with fellow schoolmates Josh Turner, Sarah Buxton and Lauren Lucas. She was selected to perform in Belmont’s most prestigious showcase, “The Best of the Best” hosted by alum Brad Paisley, held at the Ryman Auditorium.
Brittini has worked to establish herself as a demo singer songwriter on Music Row. Her main instrument is the mandolin, but she also plays a variety of other instruments including the piano, flute and guitar.
In 2007 she signed a record deal with Slugfest Records Nashville/ADA Warner Music Group. Her debut album Good Happens was released in September 2008 and in true form, she immediately set out on her first radio tour in an alternative fuel vehicle to promote her first single, also titled Good Happens.
“I want my music to help make people smile, even if it’s only for the few minutes that they’re listening to my songs. I think that being positive and hopeful is what helps us get through hard times.”
