Yesterday, Kane Brown participated in Up Close & Country with New York’s Country 94.7 at their new studios and sang all four of his number one hits. He also talked with DJ and on-air personality Katie Neal about his wife Katelyn and their unborn baby girl. After Neal congratulated the singer-songwriter on his big news, she asked who picked the name Kingsley and Brown explained that if it was a boy, they had decided on Kingston, so they wanted to keep a similar theme and landed on Kinglsey.
They also discussed his latest collaboration with EDM DJ Marshemello, “One Right Thing” which Brown had written but didn’t make his latest album, Experiment. After reading through the lyrics, Marshmello came up with the instrumentals and after taking out the banjos out, it was perfect. Neal then suggested his next collaboration should be with pop/R&B artist Lizzo.
“I think the first time you’ve played Up Close & Country for us was a little over two years ago and I was thinking about it, at the end of the interview I asked ‘What’s your goal for 2017 and what are you excited about?’ and before I could even finish you were like ‘I just want a number one at country radio, and now you have four,” Neal stated. “Which has been so cool to just watch you rise up and succeed so, thank you for coming back and doing this again, we are so happy to have you.”
After the short interview, Brown performed his biggest hits starting off with “What Ifs” and going right into his current single at country radio, “Homesick”. Before singing “Homesick” he explained the song was inspired by him being away from home and missing his wife, his dogs, and his family and friends. “After I wrote it I was trying to think of other people who could relate to the song, the first people that popped in my head was the military if y’all know anybody that are serving for us, if y’all are serving for us, I love you all, and thank you all for everything that you do.” The singer-songwriter engaged with the studio audience of winners asking them how they were feeling and talked about his beer of choice, Bud Light, which he was drinking during his performance.
He continued with his other number one hits including “Good As You”, “Lose It” and closed with a perfect rendition of “Heaven” where Brown encouraged the studio audience to sing along during the chorus. For fans who missed out, you can head Northwell Health at Jones Beach next Friday night (September 6th) to catch Kane Brown in his role as direct support for Jason Aldean on the Ride All Night Tour.
