Kane Brown was hand-selected by Outbreak Presents and deemed their next discovery-worthy artist for 2016. Now in its fifth consecutive year, Outbreak Presents has featured the biggest breakthrough artists including past headliners Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Iggy Azalea, Cole Swindell, and Fetty Wap before they were household names. Known for pairing new talent with a fan-friendly ticket prices, Outbreak Presents encourages fans to discover what’s next.
“I’m so excited to announce that we are doing the ‘Ain’t No Stopping Us Now’ tour with Monster Energy and Outbreak,” says Kane Brown. “This fall tour is going to be bigger and better than anything we’ve done so far and I can’t wait for all the fans out on the road to see the show.”
“Kane Brown is synonymous with the Outbreak, explains Steven Ljubicic, General Manager at Outbreak Presents. “He’s a man of his time and we look forward to continuing the trajectory of sold out shows on what will be his biggest headlining tour to date.”
Growing up in his hometown of Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia–a small town just outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee–RCA Nashville’s Kane Brown sang everything from Shania Twain to George Strait. The classic country songs were comfortable territory for the young singer, whose deep drawl immediately garners comparisons to Josh Turner and Chris Young. After a self-released cover of Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” went viral, the budding songwriter discovered his following had now become its own social community and his intimate relationship with his more than 2.5 million fans across socials vaulted his major label debut single “Used to Love You Sober” to the top of the iTunes Country charts and to more than 3 million streams on Spotify. Released in 2016, Kane’s co-penned EP Chapter 1 followed suit, hitting the #1 spot on the iTunes country and overall albums chart and claiming the No. 3 spot on the Billboard Country albums chart.
