Country superstar Kane Brown delivered the live performance debut of his just-released new single, “Leave You Alone,” on Monday, March 7 during the 57th Academy Of Country Music Awards.
Live from Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, the chart-topping country hitmaker performed the heartfelt tune from the ACM stage while sporting a forest green suit with black accents.
“‘Cause my love won’t leave you alone / just so you know / when I say forever girl / I mean I’m never, ever going to do ya wrong / And I won’t let you go / talking us growing old / here’s us till dawn we’ll be going on and on / baby, my love won’t leave you alone / leave you alone / leave you alone,” Brown sang on the chorus of the track.
