SiriusXM and Pandora recently announced the Small Stage Series, giving fans a chance to see superstar artists in iconic small venues around the country. One of the first artists to take part in the exclusive, one-of-a-kind events was country hitmaker Kane Brown, who allowed the invite-only crowd to attend a rehearsal for his headlining Blessed & Free Tour.
The current CMA Awards nominee gave attendees an exclusive sneak peek of his headlining show at Nashville’s historic Municipal Auditorium and showcased the outstanding stage production that he’s bringing on the road with him this fall.
Entering the stage from above, Brown served up a nearly 60-minute performance that included many of his hits, such as “Cool Again,” “Be Like That,” and “One Thing Right,” as well as his brand new single, “One Mississippi.”
In fact, the audience got to hear the song just hours before it was officially released. Click below to watch the performance.
Adding to the excitement of the intimate performance, Brown even performed an unreleased track or two that may or may not be appearing on his next album.
Speaking of new music, ahead of his performance, Brown sat down with SiriusXM’s Storme Warren to share a bit about what’s to come, revealing that he has more than enough songs ready and could “put an album out tomorrow.”
“I just keep second guessing myself,” Brown admitted. “I just want the album to be the best it can be and I just keep trying to outwrite myself, so we’ll have songs finished for the album and then tomorrow, I write a song that I think is better than one of the songs that could be on the album and I’m like, ‘That’s off’ you know ‘I’m cutting this one instead.’”
The superstar shared that he spending a lot of time listening to the songs he cuts in the studio to determine if they’ll make the cut for his album.
“That’s the only thing that I play when I’m by myself,” he said. “It’s the only thing I play because I just try and see which songs are better than the other ones.”
When asked if he has plans to continue to dip his toes in other genres of music, Brown was quick to assure Warren: “I’m never leaving country music.”
“We’re always gonna be loyal to country radio regardless,” he promised. “They’re always gonna have the first single over anybody else.”
SiriusXM and Pandora’s Small Stage Series also includes appearances from Brandi Carlile, Coldplay, Dave Matthews, Glass Animals, H.E.R., J Balvin, John Mulaney, Shaggy and Twenty One Pilots.
