Katelyn Brown will not be appearing on Kane Brown’s Drunk or Dreaming Tour this weekend (May 18-20).

Katelyn is unable to appear at the upcoming shows as their eldest daughter, Kingsley, is under the weather. While taking care of their sick 3-year-old, Katelyn took a moment to share a video message with fans to share the unfortunate news. 

“Hey guys, I wanted to jump on here really quick and let y’all know that I will not be at the shows this weekend. Kingsley girl has a little bit of a fever and is not feeling well,” she said. “Mom duties always come first, so this is where I will be, taking care of my baby.”

Me and Kane thought it was a good idea for me to just jump on here and let y’all know our situation this weekend,” Katelyn added. “Please send good vibes our way for Kingsley that she feel better soon, little sweet girl.”

“Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I am, first off I’m so nervous. This is all so new to me and when we recorded this song a year ago, I never in my life would ever think that this was ever gonna happen,” Katelyn shared from the stage. “But I just wanna say thank you so much to my amazing husband, I love you. This is so special that we get to share this together every night. I love you so much.”

The pair also had the opportunity to perform “Thank God” during the 2023 CMT Music Awards, marking the television debut of the song. 

Their performance took place on an outdoor stage and had fans swooning. Re-live the moment below.

Directed by Brown’s longtime collaborator, Alex Alvga, the Video of the Year-winning music video follows the couple around Hawaii as they cruise down a picturesque road in a vintage Bronco with the top down, enjoy a walk through a luscious tropical rainforest, and escape the world together in a mountainside bungalow.  

The video concludes with the couple embracing on a beach as the sun sets around them, making for a truly stunning scene. 

“Thank God” was released in September as part of Brown’s latest album, Different Man. It was co-written by Josh Hoge, Jaxson Free, Kyle Fishman, Christian Davis, and Jared Mullins.  

Fans will have plenty of other opportunities to see the couple perform together on Kane Brown’s Drunk Or Dreaming Tour. The trek has a slew of dates still on the books through September. 

Additionally, Brown is slated to appear at several summer festivals, including Gulf Coast Jam, Tailgate N’ Tallboys, WE Fest, and Boots in the Park.
