Between touring with Jason Aldean and releasing his infectious duet “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, 2017 is shaping up to be the year of Kane Brown. The Georgia-native performed at Nashville’s annual CMA Fest (taking place back in June but airing tonight on ABC), thrilling fans with a performance of an unreleased song titled “Found You.”
The song tells the story of a man meeting a girl at a house party, immediately thankful his friends dragged him there. Adorably, Brown’s fiancé, Kaitlyn Jae, can be seen wearing sunglasses and a purple shirt singing along with him on the sidelines.
“Sometimes the finish line is just the start of something new,” sings Brown. “If I had never lost her than I’d never found you.”
The biggest names in country music come together each year for Nashville’s CMA Music Festival. The star-studded four day long event features the vocal talents of the genre performing their biggest hits across multiple stages to packed crowds.
The 23-year-old singer made his claim to fame after a series of videos uploaded to his Facebook went viral, including covers of George Strait‘s “Check Yes or No” and Lee Brice‘s “I Don’t Dance.” After his videos caught attention by the media, Florida Georgia Line invited him out on the road for their 2016 Dig Your Roots Tour and the rest is history.
