“Breakthrough entertainer” (Associated Press) Kane Brown played to a sold-out crowd last Thursday night (1/9) at the Los Angeles Staples Center. With the record-breaking sell-out, Brown becomes one of only 10 other country acts to have sold out the historic LA arena in the venue’s 20-year history.
In partnership with the Staples Center’s 20th anniversary celebration, Brown took to the stage to perform fan-favorite songs including “Learning,” as well as his four No. 1 hits at Country Radio, “Heaven,” “What Ifs,” “Lose It” and “Good As You.” Special surprise guest Marshmello took to the stage to join Brown for their “brutally catchy” (Rolling Stone) single, “One Thing Right” which was officially certified Platinum and has more than half a billion streams to date. Additionally and true to form, Brown gave fans a sneak preview of new music and future collaborations, performing two new tracks for his fans including “Take Me Home” with country trio Restless Road.
The Multi-Platinum entertainer and 4X AMA winner continues to “defy-genres” and “break boundaries” (Billboard) in country music. After a record-breaking pre-sale in July, Brown sold out the Staples Center in under 90 minutes and became only the 11th country artist in the venue’s 20-year history to sell out the arena. Others include Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, George Strait, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain and Tim McGraw. Brown is the first artist in Billboard history to top all 5 Billboard Country charts simultaneously and with the 4X Platinum certification of “Heaven,” he became one of only five country acts with multiple 4X Platinum hits joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift.
Noted as being the “future of Country” (Billboard) and one of “31 People Changing the South” (Time), Brown released his sophomore Experiment in 2018, which debuted #1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums chart. He was one of only three country artists to top the Billboard 200 chart in all of 2018. To date, Experiment has produced back-to-back #1 hit singles- the Platinum-selling hit, “Lose It” and Platinum-selling hit, “Good As You,”– and was ranked by The New York Times as one of the Top 10 Best Albums of the Year. An ACM, AMA, Billboard and CMT nominee, Brown first broke through the country charts with his debut self-titled album, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts and spent 13 weeks at the top of the chart.
