02 Feb KANE BROWN TEAMS UP WITH STATE FARM AS PART OF NEIGHBORHOOD OF GOOD
Breakthrough country music artist Kane Brown is teaming up with State Farm® as part of the Neighborhood of Good® discussion to show how every act of good — no matter how big or small — can make a positive difference.
Kane was in New York City on Tuesday, Jan. 30, to share his personal experience with housing instability, volunteerism and the impact it has had on his life. He also discussed his upcoming tour and successful Gold-certified self-titled debut album, which has topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart 5 times. Last October, Kane made history by achieving the #1 position on all 5 of Billboard‘s country charts simultaneously, becoming the first artist to accomplish such a feat.
Despite his success, Kane has not forgotten some of the struggles he endured on his way to fame. Growing up near Chattanooga, Tenn., there were times when Brown and his mom lived in a car because they didn’t have anywhere else to go or live.
“I’ll never forget the help that people gave me, and I want people to know that just one act of kindness means the world of difference,” says Kane Brown.
With a desire to ensure everyone has access to stable housing, Kane partnered with Make Room, a nonprofit group that advocates for an end the rental affordability crisis, and spoke to Congress about tackling to the housing crisis in America.
Reminding people that volunteering is linked to feeling better, happier and more connected to community (Source: State Farm Research), Kane is encouraging people to make a positive impact in their own neighborhood by finding a volunteer opportunity right for them at http://www.neighborhoodofgood.com/.
