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!
“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.
