It’s a slight twist on his hit 2013 single “Started with a Song” and includes audio from Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels.

“This is a song that can hopefully just morph into everything we need it to be to be an anthem for the Oilers big play-off run,” Kissel said.

Kissel joked that the day he was born, the Oilers stopped winning Stanley Cups.

“And my brother and my dad have thought that I’ve been the curse. So we’ve got to reverse that curse. We have to do it with this play-off song.”
