Kane Brown was born and raised in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area by a single mother, moving from Rossville to Fort Oglethorpe and LaFayette in Georgia, finally settling in Red Bank, Tennessee.

He attended Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School, where he sang in the choir with Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on Season 10 of “American Idol.” He also attended Red Bank, Ridgeland, and Soddy Daisy High Schools, at all of which he was a stand out athlete at football, basketball, and track.

The singer was exposed to country music from a young age and was encouraged to enter his 11th grade talent show singing “Gettin’ You Home Tonight” by his favorite singer, Chris Young. He won the talent show and began his dream of pursuing a country music career.

Using social media as his platform, Brown posted cover songs and original material that went viral on Facebook and Instagram. In 2014, he crowdfunded his debut EP, “Closer.” It was released on iTunes on June 2, 2015, where it charted at No. 11. As his online popularity surged, the EP re-charted in October 2015 at No. 1 on the iTunes country chart.

On his 22nd birthday, October 21, 2015, he released the single “Used to Love You Sober” on iTunes, where it quickly went to No. 1 on the country singles chart and No. 2 overall. Two more singles followed, “Last Minute Late Night” and “Love That I Hate You,” both of which were No. 1s on iTunes.

In November 2015, Brown embarked on his first headline tour and has sold out every show he has played across the country.

The breakout country vocalist’s self-titled debut album debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and Top 10 on the Billboard 200, and marking 2016’s fourth best new artist album sales debut in all genres of music and the best new artist debut in country in more than two years. With the release of his debut album, Brown landed consecutive Top 10 Billboard 200 and back-to-back Top 5 Billboard Country projects in less than a year.

His self-released EP from March 2016, “Chapter 1,” was the highest-debuting country EP in the SoundScan era and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, and No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Albums and iTunes Country Albums charts – all prior to radio air play.
