After welcoming a daughter with his wife, Katelyn, last fall, Kane Brown is quickly learning the ins and outs of balancing a successful music career with family life.
During a short break from his headlining Worldwide Beautiful Tour, Brown stopped by Sirius XM’s The Highway’s Storme Warren Show on Tuesday (March 10) to chat about life as a new dad and revealed one of the struggles he’s faced since his daughter, Kingsley Rose, joined their family.
“It’s amazing to be a dad,” he gushed before explaining the biggest challenge of fatherhood.
“I think the hardest thing is being on the road and trying to find out, I mean, not only are you trying to find family time with your baby and your wife, you also have family out there,” he explained. “Your band, and you know I’ve got Russell [Dickerson] and Chris [Lane] out, that I haven’t really got a chance to hang out with or talk to, so it’s finding time to hang out with them as well. Just hang out with their crew and get to know everybody.”
Brown said he hopes to make connections with everyone on the road with him because he isn’t exactly sure what the future holds.
“You never know, they could be touring with me like two or three years down the road. Finding time really is the hardest thing right now.”
Finding time for family time will likely continue to be difficult as Brown continues his wildly successful rise to the top of the country music genre. The superstar’s tour is selling out shows left and right and he just earned his fifth consecutive chart-topping single with “Homesick” this week.
