Kane Brown Goes Traditional Country With Blake Shelton’s ‘Ol’ Red’


Rising country star Kane Brown first rose to internet fame with his impressive covers of fan favorite country songs by George Strait, Tim McGraw, and many other well-known artists.

It seems in the blink of an eye, he’s now practically a household name. With his deep voice that drive the fans crazy, Brown is currently  touring with Florida Georgia Line and its been speculated that he is currently prepping his sophomore album. Not to mention, song after song is hitting the top spot on iTunes. With this quick rise to fame, we know without a doubt, Brown is going to go far.

During Country USA 2016, Brown took to the stage not just to sing his own songs, but also cover one song that every country fan knows: “Ol’ Red”.

“Ol’ Red” was first recorded by George Jones in 1990 and then Kenny Rogers in 1993. Though they weren’t released as a single, Blake Shelton changed that when he released his own rendition in 2002 off his self-titled debut album.
