Music / Kane Brown

Go To

Kane Allen Brown (born October 21, 1993) is an American singer and songwriter. After gaining notoriety for his Country Music covers on social media, he was signed to a record label and began his recording career on RCA Records. He released several small singles, but did not break through until his Lauren Alaina duet "What Ifs" in 2017. This was followed by "Heaven", "Lose It", and "Good as You" for a four-straight streak of number-one hits on the country charts.

One of country music's top acts in The New '10s, he became the first artist to have five number ones on all five Billboard country music charts simultaneously.

He is one of the few breakout stars that appeared on The X Factor US, passing his audition but declined to be part of a boy band. In addition to his own work, he has collaborated with Marshmello, Khalid, and Chris Young.

  • Declaration of Protection: "What Ifs" hints at this with the line "What if I loved all these what ifs away?"
  • Forgiveness: What "Learning" is about, not so much forgiving those who wrong you, but giving yourself peace.
  • Genre Roulette: The Experiment album is still a country album, but the R&B and Rock influences are much stronger.

  • Relationship Revolving Door: "One Mississippi":
    You and I had this off and on so long
    You've been here, then you've been gone
    So many times
    And every night, yeah I'm always bumping into you
    Well, you do the same things we used to
    It's your place or it's mine...
  • Silly Love Songs: "Worship You" is about him being so in love with his wife that he feels that he should worship her.
