Back in October, hitmaker, Kane Brown released his top ten song, “Good As You” off his sophomore album, Experiment. The romantic and heartfelt song acted as the backdrop for Brown’s beautiful wedding to his now- wife, Katelyn Jae. Just yesterday, Brown premiered an equally as touching official music video for the track on CMT.
The singer has been open about his struggles growing up, but despite the challenges, he gives credit to his grandmother and mother for raising him into the man he is today. After honoring his wife previously, Brown honors the other most important women in his life and other strong women in his inspiring music video, which was directed by Reid Long and produced by Christen Pinkston. “This Is Us” star Lonnie Chavis plays the young boy in the video, who is representative of Brown as a child. The video’s unique approach to the love song is not only relatable but relays a powerful message.
The entertainer shared more about his creative process for the music video in a quick clip on his YouTube channel. “It’s awesome being raised by women because I can relate to them so much,” he shares, later explaining, “I feel like there’s a lot of scenes, where you can see how I was raised. This an awesome video that pays tribute to my Nana and my Mom.” He added in an interview with CMT, “To be able to honor them is incredible because no matter how much we struggled, my Mom and Nana never let me see it.”
Brown’s authenticity and sense of self continues to lace itself through his music, garnering him more and more success and recognition in the industry. He currently has four Billboard Music Award nominations, including Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist, Top Country Album, and Top Country Song. The recording artist is also up for an ACM Award for Single of the Year for his platinum track “Heaven.”
