Kane Brown’s new single, “One Mississippi,” officially has the stamp of approval from his biggest little fan, his 22-month-old daughter, Kingsley.
The pair shared a precious father/daughter moment dancing to the just-released track in the kitchen of the Brown family home on Sunday (Aug. 22).
“She wouldn’t shake her hips like she usually does but she’s dancing to my new song one Mississippi are you?,” Brown, 27, captioned the post.

Brown can’t help but smile in the clip as he moves to the beat alongside little Kingsley, who is seen spinning in circles as she yells “Daaaaaa” and points at the speakers.
“That’s me,” Brown says proudly.
The award-winning country star recently opened up about his daughter’s ever-changing personality in an interview with Audacy’s Katie & Company.
“Her personality is off the chart,” he gushed. “She can’t talk yet, but she knows what she wants, she just points. She says ‘yea’, and she says ‘dad’. Every time I wake up and look downstairs she goes ‘Daaa’…She says ‘mom’, but she screams my name every time I come through the door.”
“One Mississippi” was written by Brown, Jesse Frasure, Levon Gray and Ernest K. Smith and produced by Dann Huff.
The track came to life after Brown discovered Levon Gray, a brand new songwriter on social media.
“He tagged me in a post, and two other people, and I was the only artist who got back to him. I thought he could sing,” Brown recently told Country Now. “And the song [in the post], he had written himself. I had just started my publishing company, so I was like, ‘I wanna give this guy a chance.’”
That’s when Brown decided to bring Gray into an upcoming writing session with Smith and Frasure.
“I asked them if they would write with a new writer, that nobody in Nashville had heard before. They gave him a chance, and it was kind of like his audition,” Brown recounts. “He came into the writing session with the title ‘One Mississippi.’ I kinda sat back and let him take charge, to see how he was gonna do.”
It turns out, Brown’s intuition was correct.
“One Mississippi” officially goes to country radio on Monday, August 23.
