About Kane Brown

Global entertainer Kane Brown has been called “the future of country” (Billboard), “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in 2018 (Associated Press) and one of “31 People Changing the South” (Time). With the chart-topping U.S. Billboard 200 release of his Platinum U.S/Gold Canada album Experiment in Nov. 2018, Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top of this chart. Experiment has yielded three consecutive No. 1 Platinum-certified singles, “Homesick,” “Good As You” and “Lose It.” “Good As You” and “Lose It.” are certified Platinum in Canada. Brown made history with his 2X U.S. Platinum (Platinum in Canada) self-titled debut album, a 13-week No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. He became the first artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts simultaneously with his breakthrough No. 1 Top Country Album; No. 1 debuting Country Digital Song, the 5X U.S./4X Canada Platinum “Heaven,” and No. 1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the 5X U.S./3X Canadian Platinum  “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina. Of all the country artists who made their long-form debut since 2016, Brown is the only one to receive two or more Platinum album certifications. The ACM, AMA, People’s Choice, Billboard, AMA, iHeartRadio, CMT and Billboard Music Awards nominated artist is one of only five country acts with multiple 5X Platinum hits (joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift). His two 5X Platinum songs are “Heaven” and “What Ifs” which, respectively, are the No. 3 and No. 5 most-streamed country tracks of all time – making him the only artist to have two tracks in the Top 5 of country’s most-streamed songs. A recent milestone is Brown being in the company of only 10 other country artists who have sold-out the Staples Center in Los Angeles, which he accomplished on Jan. 9 when he headlined the historic venue’s 20th anniversary celebration. In Feb., he kicked off his “Worldwide Beautiful Tour” including U.S. dates in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. Among Kane Brown’s multiple musical collaborations, Marshmello and Brown’s Platinum-certified “One Thing Right,” a Top 15 hit at Top 40 radio which also crossed to Hot AC, recently became Brown’s first multi-format breakthrough.
