The “Cool Again” singer took to Facebook to make light of the situation and explain what actually took place, because despite the initial report, he didn’t get lost with Katelyn afterall.
“Someone help! I’m lost,” he wrote alongside a laughing emoji. “ALL JOKES ASIDE. The real story is I moved into a new house. I own 30 acres of 3000 around me. I told my wife I wanted to go check out the property I’ll be 30 minutes. I went with my friend and his girl. I was in shorts and a t shirt. 30 minutes turned into 3 hours it started raining turned dark and dropped to 40 degrees. I left my phone on the back of my truck my friends was on 7%. We used gps to try and get back but it kept taking us to all these cliffs that u can’t drive a 4 wheeler down and I wasn’t about to leave them.”
At that point, Brown says he contacted his “last resort,” fellow singer/songwriter Ryan Upchurch who lives nearby.
“He finds me with his buddy and now 3 turned into 5 of us lost. He has 4 other friends riding around in a canam and they start getting shot at. My buddy’s girl who has ￼asthma started then freaking out. We HAD to get her out,” he explained. “So we call the cops. The cops arrive and here the gun shots and think we are shooting at them. We yell at them and tell them we are not armed and made it out. That’s the story but I love the getting lost in my back yard better.”
Brown clarified the story with a hilarious photo of himself near the woods with his dog. He also shared it on Instagram, writing, “Can someone help me ? I’m lost.”
Kane Brown will release his highly anticipated new EP on August 14. His “Cool Again” remix with rapper Nelly is slated to drop on Friday (Aug. 7).
