Country superstar Kane Brown just earned his milestone 10th No.1 single at country radio with his latest single, “Bury Me In Georgia.” 

According to country radio insider Chris Owen, “Bury Me In Georgia” topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week and is expected to also rank No.1 on the Mediabase Country Airplay chart when it’s released on Sunday, Sept. 10. 

“Bury Me In Georgia” was officially released to country radio in April as the follow-up to “Thank God,” his wildly successful ninth chart-topper featuring his wife, Katelyn Brown.

Upon its official add date, the track raked in a whopping 85 first-week adds, making it the most-added song at country radio that week. 

“Bury Me In Georgia” was co-written by Brown alongside Josh Hoge, Matt McGinn, and Jordan Schmidt. 

The song appears on his latest album, Different Man, and serves as a musical tribute to his home state.

“‘Bury Me In Georgia’ just a song, you know, about the home state that I grew up in,” Brown says. “That’s where I want to go whenever it’s my time. Especially the Georgia Bulldogs, they on top of it right now about three-peat so anyway, no, Georgia is just, you know, it’s always gonna place in my heart.”

The bootstomping tune showcases a different side of Brown’s artistry. 

“Bury me in Georgia/ Lemme rest in peace/ Underneath the pines/ Yeah, yeah, yeah/ Where my roots run deep/ When it’s my day/ Put me in that clay/ And remember what I told ya/ When I die/ Bury me in Georgia,” he sings alongside a rock-heavy beat.

The chart-topping news comes after Kane Brown earned a CMA Awards nomination for “Thank God” alongside Katelyn. The couple’s first-ever duet was nominated for Musical Event of the Year alongside “Save Me” – Jelly Roll (with Lainey Wilson), “She Had Me At Heads Carolina (Remix)” – Cole Swindell & Jo Dee Messina, “wait in the truck” – HARDY (feat. Lainey Wilson), and “We Don’t Fight Anymore” – Carly Pearce (featuring Chris Stapleton). 

Hopes To Continue To Play Stadiums

Kane Brown recently wrapped his headlining Drunk or Dreaming Tour and has a few dates remaining on the books for this year. Next up, he’s scheduled to perform at Books in the Park in Fresno, California on Sept. 8 and Boots in the Park in San Deigo, California on Sept. 9. 

While his future touring plans have yet to be announced, Brown recently opened up about transitioning to stadiums. He recently played a sold-out show at the iconic Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. 

“We’re going to start moving to stadiums coming up, so eventually it would be sick just to be a stadium act,” the country star told Pure Country. He later added that he wants “the biggest production possible.”
