Country singer Kane Brown just made history as the first artist to top all main country charts simultaneously.
The 24-year-old country singer’s name tops all five of Billboard‘s main country charts, seen at No.1 on Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs categories.
Brown’s platinum-selling single “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina recently dethroned Sam Hunt‘s record shattering “Body Like a Backroad” from No.1 on country radio, Hunt’s song previously enjoying a history-making 34 weeks at the top of the chart.
“If anyone knocked him off, my song was right there for a couple of weeks, and I wanted to be that one,” shared Brown in an interview with Billboard. “I think it’s awesome that Lauren and I both get to share in this moment, along with my band and my team.”
Alaina and Brown’s friendship dates back to their middle school days, the pair meeting in choir class in their hometown of Rossville, Georgia.
“Yeah, we were the awkward kids,” shared Brown in regards his longtime friend. “Once we decided on adding a woman to ‘What Ifs,’ I knew that I wanted Lauren to sing it, and, of course, she killed it.”
