Kane Brown scores his 11th career No. 1 on the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts with his hard-hitting single, “I Can Feel It.”

Upon its debut to country radio on September 25, 2023, the song was the most added with an impressive 92 first-week adds. It quickly became a fan-favorite for its steamy narrative and Phill Collins-inspired drumbeats and has now climbed its way all the way to No. 1 on the charts.

This top-charting achievement follows Brown’s latest No. 1 hits including “Bury Me In Georgia” and “Thank God” with his wife, Katelyn Brown.

CRB Artist Humanitarian Award

Brown’s latest feat with “I Can Feel It” also comes hot on the heels of a string of milestone celebrations that took place during Nashville’s 2024 Country Radio Seminar. The first came while the genre-bending star was on hand at CRS Honors on February 29 to accept the CRB Artist Humanitarian Award for his ongoing work with the Boys & Girls Club.

Diamond Certification Celebration

Later that evening, he made his way over to Cannery Ballroom for a diamond certification celebration held in partnership with the RIAA. The room was filled with excited fans and members of the industry as Brown dialed back his usually show-stopping production to fit the mood of the intimate setting.

After putting his collection of No. 1 hits on display with unforgettable performances and emotional moments, the Chattanooga, TN native was joined on stage by several members of his team, including Sony Nashville Chairman and CEO Randy Goodman, manager Martha Earls, and Michelle Ballantyne, Chief Operating Officer of RIAA. 

These industry executives were proud to present Brown with a Diamond certification trophy and plaque for his Diamond single, “Heaven.” He also received plaques celebrating his certifications for his debut album (3X Platinum) as well as singles including “Heaven” (Diamond, 10X Platinum), “What Ifs” (9X Platinum), “Thank God” (3X Platinum), “One Thing Right” (5X Platinum), “Be Like That” (4X Platinum), “Good As You” (3X Platinum), “Lose It” (3X Platinum), “Homesick” (3X Platinum), and “Bury Me In Georgia” (1X Platinum).

Brown’s New Single Holds Big Expectations

Brown recently told Audacy’s Rob + Holly that his next single is expected to be a “great follow-up” to “I Can Feel It” as it “sounds even bigger.” As a result of its uniqueness, he admitted he’s unsure if the unreleased track will get any airtime on country radio. 

“Hopefully, my next single — I don’t know if they’re going to allow me to bring this next single or not, but they should — it’s called ‘Fiddle in the Band,’” Kane shared before making note of the title’s connection to Alabama’s “If You’re Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band).”

“It’s almost like, ‘If You want to play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band,’ but it sounds nothing like that, sings nothing like that, lyrics nothing like that, but it’s my version,” he added.

Carrying That Same Idea Into His Next Album

This marks the start of his next album, which Brown also teased, saying it will be “way different” than his past work. 

“This album is going to be way different, that’s what I like about it,” he shared. “Any song that I have on the album is going to sound completely different than anything on the radio right now. I’m really pumped for it.”

At the end of March, Kane Brown will embark on his 31-date headline tour of the same name, with his first stop being at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Brown is scheduled to make stops in various arenas and stadiums around the country through September 14 when it wraps at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX.
