Kane Brown on Ellen

Country superstar Kane Brown made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and teamed up with Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis to play a game called “Ramp It Up!” in honor of a great cause.

Brown sat in the hot seat as DeGenres and Sudeikis took turns rolling balls up a ramp in an attempt to earn donation money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Upon reaching their goal of $15,000, Brown would be drenched with water from above. 

“Jason and I will take turns rolling balls up our Ramp It Up! board, it’s like skee ball on steroids for every hole we make a ball into, we’ll win some money to support breast cancer awareness,” DeGeneres explained ahead of the game. “If we can get up to $15,000 dollars the siren will go off and someone [Kane Brown] will get splashed in our splash tank.”

Sudeikis was more than willing to take part in helping the cause as his mother, Cathy, is a breast cancer survivor. 

Brown was all-in as well, saying, “I just love helping people, so if water splashing me is helping people out. I’m down for it, let’s do it!”

The game was a huge success as DeGenres and Sudeikis surpassed their original goal of $15,000 and raked in a whopping $24,000 for RAD-AID, an organization that is “helping to provide breast cancer screening and treatment for women in underserved communities.”

In addition to taking part in the “Ramp It Up!” game, Brown took to The Ellen DeGeneres Show stage to perform “Memory,” his collaboration with Blackbear. 

The performance marked the television debut of the pop track, which was written by Brown, Matthew Musto (blackbear), Goldstein, Joe Kirkland and Ernest Smith.
