On the heels of being selected by Time Magazine as “One of 31 People Changing the South,” mutli-platinum awarded artist Kane Brown celebrates another milestone as his multi-week #1 song “Heaven”  became one of only two singles in the past decade to remain Top 5 for 14 weeks or more on the Billboard Country Airplay Charts. Time Magazine spotlighted Brown for his “willingness to stretch genre boundaries and highly personal storytelling.”

Noted as “one of Nashville’s most promising young stars and also one of its most flexible” (New York Times), the singer/songwriter’s Triple-Platinum #1 hit “What Ifs” recently became the #3 most-streamed country song of all time. Brown is currently working on the highly-anticipated follow-up album to his multi-week chart-topping debut which is scheduled to release November 9.

Produced by multiple-award-winner Dann Huff, the album features several tracks co-written by Brown including his current single, “Lose It.” Already Top 30 and rising on airplay charts, “Lose It” continues to gain momentum and critical-praise, with the New York Times calling it “urgent and saucy…broad-spectrum ecstasy.” The “Lose It” track and music video are available now. The Georgia native also released a video for “Weekend,” an additional track from his upcoming album, which debuted to great reviews and earned raves as the “perfect jam” ( Taste of Country ) this morning to his fans via socials.

The chart-topping Platinum-certified album Kane Brown holds 2018’s longest reign on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart with 10 weeks at #1 and has hit a total of 12 weeks at #1. Additionally, Brown’s album has amassed the most weeks of any country album released since December 2016.

Brown first topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with the release of his self-titled debut album (2016) and again with the release of Kane Brown Deluxe Edition (2017), which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top 5 on Billboard 200 Charts. That same week, the 24-year-old entertainer made history by becoming the first-ever artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts with his breakthrough #1 Top Country Album; #1 debuting Country Digital Song, the Double-Platinum “Heaven”; and #1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the Triple-Platinum “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina. In addition to making Billboard history, Brown garnered a Guinness World Record for becoming the first act to top five U.S. country charts simultaneously. To date, Kane Brownremains the best new artist country debut of the past four and a half years and is available HERE.
