The country singer stopped by Indianapolis-based radio station HANK FM to show off his insanely deep voice, keeping it country with a masterful rendition of Randy Travis’ iconic “Three Wooden Crosses.”
Brown performed the song backed by two acoustic guitars, singing Travis’ classic beautifully in an effortless display of pure talent. While debatably one of his most memorable covers, “Three Wooden Crosses” is not Brown’s first cover to catch attention from the media.
The “What Ifs” singer experienced an unlikely rise to fame after videos featuring him covering classic country songs of the past went viral. Two years later and the 23-year-old singer is opening for country music superstar Jason Aldean on his 2017 They Don’t Know About Us Tour alongside fellow opener Chris Young.
