It seems as if there’s no stopping Kane Brown.
The multi-platinum superstar sold out the Staples Center in Los Angeles in less than two hours on Friday (July 26). His October 18th show marks the kick-off of the year-long 20th anniversary celebration of the iconic venue.
The sell-out is just another impressive feat accomplished by Brown, who is the first artist in Billboard history to Top all 5 Billboard Country charts simultaneously. Additionally, the three-time Amerian Music Award winner is one of only five country acts with multiple 4X Platinum hits joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift.
Brown is currently a special guest on Jason Aldean’s 2019 Ride All Night Tour. He recently released a head-turning collaboration, entitled “One Thing Right,” with renowned DJ/producer Marshmello. The genre-bending pair will bring “One Thing Right” to Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series on August 30.
On top of everything happening in his career, Kane Brown is also expecting his first child with wife Katelyn Jae. Their baby girl is expected to arrive later this fall.
