For some, drawing attention to yourself on social media is just for ego. For others, it can pay off, a long time. This is the second thing Kane Brown had hoped for and he did, far more than he ever imagined.
Brown is pretty much a newbie to the world of country music. The 27-year-old started posting his music on the internet just a few years ago. That quickly turned into a higher deal with the Nashville RCA. Card beats came in as nominated for music awards, and he won. Today, Brown has a huge following and is one of the most popular stars in country music. His major hits to date include “Heaven” and “Homesick.”

Brown’s mother is white.
Brown has always loved music. He tried out for American Idol after his high school friend, Lauren Alaina, had great success on the show. If he doesn’t make the cut there, he did interviews as well The X Factor. In 2013, they chose him for the show, but they also wanted him to appear in a boy band. That was something Brown was not interested in. He left the show and turned to social media to offer his talent.
In 2015, he shared his own cover video of “Check Yes or No,” which first hit George Strait. It went viral, earning more than seven million views, according to Hits Daily Double.

Brown’s big show has earned him big bucks
Just around the time people started noticing Brown’s music, his wife noticed it too. The two met at a Topgolf facility in Florida. Katelyn Jae did not realize when she met Brown that he was on his way to stardom. She just liked it. They became friends and started dating. Along with his increased success was the rise in the relationship. She had also studied and loved music. They married in 2018 and a year later, Katelyn gave birth to their daughter, Kingsley Rose Brown.
In the five years to come since signing with RCA Nashville, Brown has amassed a net worth of $ 6 million, according to Famous Net Worth. Brown recently appeared as a Blake (Shelton) Team Advisor on Season 19 of The Voice on NBC. If nobody in country music still knew who Brown was, they do now.
