Kane Brown Originally Thought He Wanted To Pursue Sports

Kane Brown originally thought that he’d go down the path of college sports. If it wasn’t for his friend, maybe he wouldn’t be in country music!

Kane told Nash Country Daily:

“I thought I was going to go to college and, you know, [play] ball—football or basketball—and then the talent show was coming up and that’s when I kind of started singing again. My buddy was like, ‘Dude, you need to do the talent show,’ so I started learning Chris Young [songs].

“I started singing ‘Gettin’ You Home,’ so then I went and sang at my talent show, and I ended up winning. Then they wanted me to do an encore and I did ‘Your Man’ by Josh Turner. So, after that, I was just like, ‘You know what? This is what I want to do.’ So then . . . I started posting covers on Facebook and got lucky. People started sharing my stuff and I was like, ‘You know what? I just want to take this as a career.’”

And what a career it’s been! Kane’s self-titled album is currently sitting on No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Not to mention, “What Ifs” is the most-streamed song of 2018 so far, and “Heaven” is also climbing the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
