In early 2020, when the world shut down and Kane Brown found himself at home with no tour dates on the books, the superstar decided to set a new goal for himself: to become the “most shredded guy in country music.”

He took his goal very seriously and began to work out every day.

Now, nearly two years later, Brown’s hard work has paid off. His body has completely transformed and he’s gained more self-confidence than ever. 

“I’ve seen a lot of progress. It’s also good when your wife tells you she can see it,” he recently shared when taking Men’s Health through his workout routine at Nashville’s TITLE Boxing Club, adding, “You know you’re starting to look a lot better than you did before and it gives that mentality to keep going.”

The “One Mississippi” singer credits his six-days-a-week workout routine to his newfound mental state. 

“I’ve always been just a little skinny guy,” he admitted. “I’ve never really had a chest, so that was one of the main goals that I wanted.”

Brown said that seeing his body change made him “feel a lot better” about himself. 

“A lot more confident and it got me ready for stage. My mental health is just crazy now,” he explained.

His intense strength and cardio workouts have led to a 21-pound weight gain. Brown revealed his progress on Monday (Feb. 14) via Instagram stories. 

“Started this journey at 180,” the father of two wrote alongside a photo of the scale reading his new weight of 201.4. 

Brown often shares his daily workout recaps to Instagram as well, detailing his time worked, weight lifted and more. 

The country hitmaker will have plenty of time to continue his workouts at home before kicking off the next leg of his Blessed & Free Tour with his first-ever stadium concert in his hometown of Chattanooga, Tenn. on Saturday, May 7.
