From living on the streets to selling out stadiums, Kane Brown has shown the world that regardless of where your journey starts, you have the ability to paint a beautiful future.
Brown was born on Oct. 21, 1993 in Georgia from a mixed raced family, with his mother being caucasian and his father being of black and Cherokee descent. With his father not present Brown was raised by his mother and family, settling in Red Bank, Tennessee. Brown grew up listening to country music and R&B but after performing the song “Gettin’ You Home” by Chris Young, he knew a future in country music was his destiny.
Although Brown is fairly new to the big-time country music world, he has been preparing himself for this very moment for years. Before his fame, Brown auditioned for both American Idol and X Factor, being chosen to participate in X Factor’s 2013 run, but left the show when asked to join a boy band.
Who could imagine that voice stuck in the background? He then decided to plan his own route to fame by posting himself singing covers of songs on social media. Some of his most popular covers include “I Don’t Dance” by Lee Brice and “Check Yes or No” by George Strait.
As we’ve begun to uncover the mystery of such a dynamic singer, we’ve discovered his passion for self expression through tattoos, and spending time with family and friends. During a concert in Philadelphia in April 2017, Brown announced his engagement to singer Katelyn Jae. They plan to marry sometime later this year. Many entertainers keep their private life just that, private. But Brown floods his over 1.3 million (Instragram) followers’ timelines with endless pictures and videos of getaways and personal time with the love of his life.
Brown is now signed to RCA Nashville and has since released a countless number of hits. Browns album and songs from the album made history by making all five billboard country charts. His debut album with RCA, self titled “Kane Brown,” was a success, selling 45,000 copies in the first week.
Some of his top hits include “Heaven,” “What Ifs” and “Lose It.” Watching the 24 year-old mixed-race millennial live out his dreams, performing country music in sold out arenas, is truly an American dream. As the world awaits the arrival of Brown’s sophomore album set to be released Nov. 9, we expect nothing but more number one hits from the powerhouse country singer.
