The night Kane Brown took the stage at the second QYK Guitar Pull, he was just excited to be on the same stage as Josh Turner. Kane by that point had a strong internet following, but the radio hits hadn’t quite happened yet.
Truth be told, I got this interview because I’m just the night guy and I’m pretty sure none of the other DJs wouldn’t have had a clue what to ask. The other DJs interviewed Gary Allan, Josh, Chris Lane and the other performers who had big radio hits. But who was this new kid Kane Brown? I was given about 10 minutes to prepare so I quickly hit up his Wikipedia page to find some things to talk about. I thought his story of how he quit a reality TV show because he wanted control over his music was pretty cool. And when I got him to do a couple lines of one of Lee Brice’s songs, I knew this dude was going to blow up. Sure enough just two years later, he’s had ACM Awards nominations, #1 hits and toured with Jason Aldean. Now he’s headlining his own arena tour with a stop coming up in Orlando.
