Growing up in his hometown of Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., Brown sang everything from Shania Twain to George Strait. After a self-released cover of Lee Brice's "I Don't Dance" went viral, Brown built a following. Brown gained a following from the song "Used to Love You Sober." Earlier this year, Brown released the EP, "Chapter 1." "Thunder In the Rain" will be his next single with the song going to radio in August.

CD reviews for Kane Brown
First look at the cover for Kane Brown's full-length debut album, and you may experience a "Homeboy" moment. The young man appears like the tattooed model for Eric Church's song of the same name. Although Brown is categorized as bro-country in some quarters, the actual music he makes is much better than you might expect. This is one case where you shouldn't judge the book by its cover.
Although the album includes a lustful song like "Pull It Off," which is a »»»
Kane Brown is the latest singer to wear the "Future of Country" mantel. With ridiculous social media statistics for a 22-year-old singer and hit songs on iTunes, the buzz about Brown was so loud that Nashville had to take notice. Brown's "Chapter One" EP marks his major-label debut, and it demonstrates that he does have talent, even if the songs don't always show it.
As a new artist stretching his wings, Brown tries to do too much vocally. Frequently, he dips his »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers
When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience
Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry. »»»
