Motherly duties called and Katelyn Brown was unable to join Kane Brown on the road this weekend, so the country superstar got a little help from his fans when singing his latest chart-topping single. 

During recent shows in Denver, Colorado and Albuquerque, New Mexico, fans filled in for Katelyn when Brown sang “Thank God.” Even though Katelyn wasn’t there to add her angelic vocals to the mix, fans sang along to every word as they lit up the venue with their cell phone lights. 

The beautiful moment was captured by Brown in a selfie-style video and later shared on social media. 

He Turned To His Dedicated Fans To Help Him Sing The Duet

“Kate had to stay home this week for Kings dance recital so the crowd helped me 💪🏾 Denver, Albuquerque y’all rocked it thank y’all! 🔥,” the superstar shared. 

Katelyn had a good reason to be at home as she played the role of dance mom all weekend for their eldest daughter, Kingsley’s first-ever dance recital. 

The proud mom documented the milestone moment on Instagram with an adorable video taking fans through their recital day, beginning with her makeup session. She also showcased clips from her dance and the sweet moment she received a bouquet of flowers after her time on stage.

Kane was sad to have to miss the special moment and wrote, “😭😭😭 and I wasn’t there.”

Most recently, Kane and Katelyn Brown were honored when “Thank God” took home the title of Video of the Year at the 2023 CMT Music Awards. It was an emotional moment for the beloved country couple. 

“Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I am, first off I’m so nervous. This is all so new to me and when we recorded this song a year ago, I never in my life would ever think that this was ever gonna happen,” Katelyn shared from the stage. “But I just wanna say thank you so much to my amazing husband, I love you. This is so special that we get to share this together every night. I love you so much.”
