LIMA — Kane Brown’s success has only continued to climb since being announced as the fair headliner in May. Since then, he has released two additional singles.
Brown released “One Thing Right” with Marshmello in June and “Like A Rodeo” in July. Meanwhile, hits “Homesick” and “Short Skirt Weather” from his 2018 album “Experiment” have been making rounds as well.
“It took us a little while to get to this point where we’re at, but now that we’ve got it, we’re just rolling,” Brown said in a phone interview. “We’re super excited to be in this position. We don’t take any of it for granted.”
Despite playing gigs like the CMT Music Awards and soon in a sold-out Staples Center, Brown said he loves performing in towns that bring him back to his roots.
“I grew up in a small town, so to be able to get to visit other people’s small towns is cool,” he said. ““(Ohio) has been one of my favorite places to play, and I know that sounds crazy, but it’s always fun going there and just seeing the dedicated fan base.”
Opening for Brown will be the Nashville-based and Australian-born band Seaforth. Band members and childhood friends Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson released their debut EP “Love That” in April, which includes four songs. Seaforth has toured with Brown a few times and was named by Brown’s team to open the show.
“We were lucky enough to have our first show in New York ever together as Seaforth supporting him at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden (last November),” Thompson said. “It was just Tom and I on our acoustic guitars in front of 6,000 people. Kane’s fans are serious fans. It was very loud and we walked off stage with like 800 new followers. That was a serious moment for us.”
