Kane Brown, a biracial Georgia-born country singer with a huge social media following, has released his self-titled debut album through RCA Nashville.
Produced primarily by Dann Huff, the 11-song Kane Brown includes tracks co-written by Florida Georgia Line and Chris Young, the latter an early influence on the 23-year-old. Brown, who describes the album as autobiographical, co-wrote seven of its songs.
Brown, whose mother is white and father is black and part Cherokee, grew up poor and sometimes homeless, living out of a car with his single mom. They resided in several Georgia towns, among them LaFayette, Fort Oglethorpe and Rossville. After receiving attention for the covers of various country songs he posted online, Brown self-released his debut EP Closer in 2015, followed his RCA debut EP Chapter 1 in March 2016, which contained the hit “Used to Love You Sober.”
