PERFORMING NATIONAL ANTHEM AHEAD OF DAYTONA 500 THIS SUNDAY (2/19)
RETURNING TO C2C COUNTRY TO COUNTRY FESTIVAL IN MARCH
Bad Realm Records/Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville PLATINUM-seller BRELAND and Columbia Records NY/Sony Music Nashville artist-songwriter Alana Springsteen have teamed up for a striking new duet version of BRELAND’s “For What It’s Worth,” adding emotional depth to a too-little-too-late standout.

The regret-filled track was originally written by BRELAND with Rocky Block, Jacob Durrett and Greylan James for his 2022 album debut, CROSS COUNTRY, but now gets a fresh perspective and a brand-new verse co-written by Springsteen alongside GRAMMY Award-winner Liz Rose that captures the other side of the what-could-have-been anthem.
Featuring gorgeous new harmonies that invoke a once-easy connection, plus an updated Pop-Country sound with tender guitars and subdued drums, the track perfectly expresses the numb feeling when a relationship ends – and the realization it was all your fault. With heavy hearts, the two emerging stars share a moment over what they once had, but ultimately find out you can’t turn back time.
“When I first put out ‘For What It’s Worth,’ the overwhelming response came from women who wished their exes would own up to their mistakes in this way,” BRELAND explains. “I immediately knew a woman’s perspective would take the song to another level. Alana Springsteen is a newer face in Country music, but one that I believe people will be seeing for a long time. She sings some of my favorite breakup songs, and it felt like a natural fit to bring her in on ‘For What It’s Worth.’ Unsurprisingly, she delivered an amazing verse and added the flavor that was needed. Hopefully people appreciate our take on the song the way I do.”
Following the release, BRELAND will supercharge the DAYTONA 500 this Sunday (2/19) as he performs the National Anthem before the 65th running of NASCAR’s premiere event – “The Great American Race.”
Meanwhile, tickets are on sale now for the hit-maker’s second annual “BRELAND & Friends” concert to benefit the Oasis Center on April 4 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Helping support local at-risk youth, BRELAND will be joined by a star-studded cast including Springsteen, Ashley Cooke, Avery Anna, Danielle Bradbery, Gary Levox, Ingrid Andress, K. Michelle, Nate Smith, Temecula Road, Tenille Townes, X Ambassadors and more.
Looking ahead, BRELAND will continue on a busy tour schedule as he returns to C2C Country to Country Festival in London to play The 02 Arena on March 10, and then support tours for both Walker Hayes and Shania Twain with high-profile festival stops on deck such as Stagecoach Festival, Gulf Coast Jam, Country Fest and Boots and Hearts Music Festival.
