For others, it’s only a matter of vanity to attract attention to themselves on social media.
It can pay off for others, big time. Kane Brown had been hoping for the latter, and it paid off, even more than he had ever expected.
A relative newcomer to the country music scene, Brown is.
Just a few years ago, the 27-year-old started releasing his music on the Internet.
That quickly turned into an RCA Nashville record deal.
As well as music award nominations and wins, hits on the charts followed.
Brown has a large fan base today and is one of country music’s most popular stars. So far, his top hits include “Heaven” and “Homesick.”
What is Kane Brown’s background?
FAMILY archive now available #KBFamily https://t.co/XaEti7WEf6 pic.twitter.com/82sWnleiJn- Kane Brown (@kanebrown) December 4, 2020 Brown was raised by a single mother and grew up in the South. He was born in Tennessee’s Chattanooga, but they lived in Georgia, too. It was not until he was seven years of age that he discovered that he was a member of a mixed race. His father is also a mixed race, part Native American and part African American, who spent time in jail when Brown was growing up.
Mother of Brown is white.
Brown has always been in love with music. After his high school buddy Lauren Alaina had great success on the competition, he tried out for American Idol.
He also applied for The X Factor because he didn’t make it there. They picked him for the show in 2013, but they wanted him to play in a boy band as well.
That was something that was of little interest to Brown. To give his talent, he quit the show and turned to social media.
He shared his own cover video of ‘Check Yes or No’ in 2015, originally a George Strait hit. According to Hits Daily Double, it went viral, reaching more than seven million views. On iTunes, he quickly became the most sought after artist, ahead of artists such as Luke Bryan and Ed Sheeran. Shortly after, on iTunes’ Country Albums chart and #19 overall, his EP “Closer” went straight to #4.
Shortly afterwards, Brown wrote the song “I Used to Love You Sober,” which he posted on the Internet with only a small clip. The clip had been viewed a million times within just three hours.

Brown said, “I feel like I’m about to pass out,” as he accepted his televised Favorite Male Artist – Country Award. Thank God, thank you, my fans, thank you, thank you, Martha, my boss, my team, my band, Sony, Universal Publishing.
Thank you to all the people who have helped me get here… I love everybody.
The success of Brown has made him a lot of money.
He also gained the interest of his future wife around the time people began to appreciate Brown’s music.
The two met at a top golf facility in Florida. When she met Brown, Katelyn Jae didn’t realize that he was on his way to stardom. She really loved him.
They’ve become friends and have started dating.
As his popularity grew, their relationship grew, too. She had also studied and loved music.
In 2018, they got married and Katelyn gave birth to their daughter, Kingsley Rose Brown, a year later.
In the less than five years since signing with RCA Nashville, Brown has amassed a net worth of $6 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Recently, Brown appeared as a consultant to Team Blake (Shelton) on Season 19 of The Voice on NBC. If anyone in country music didn’t know who Brown is yet, they do now.
No doubt we’ll be hearing a lot more from the star, and his fortunes will continue to grow. Not bad for a 27-year-old who made his debut on the Internet.
