Kane Brown talks upcoming album and giving back to his hometown

Kane Brown is currently working on his next album, which he is hoping will be his best yet.

The country singer, 27, gave an idea of what fans can expect on the project during a recent interview with “Good Morning America.”

“I’ve been listening to a lot of music, different music recently, so the album I’m really excited about,” he shared. “We have some big anthem, movie style songs that’s going to be on there.”

“We also have some different old school kind of sounds,” he continued. “We have a Sam Cooke kind of vibe, and then we have like a you walk into a saloon kind of vibe song that I’m really pumped about. … We’ve only tracked four of them so far, so I’m still trying to outwrite everything that I have, and I’m just trying to make this one of the best albums — if not the best album that I’ve released so far.”

The new album follows his 2020 EP “Mixtape Vol. 1.” Brown’s wife, Katelyn, and their 1-year-old daughter, Kingsley, were both featured in the emotional music video for a song on his EP, “Worship You.”

Fans of the couple will be excited to hear that Kane and Katelyn’s first duet will be featured on his next album. The two are working on a song that shares the story of their relationship.

“We just kind of wrote a song about our background, about how we connected, how we met,” he said. “I wrote my verse by myself, and then the other writers wrote the chorus.”

“So then when I brought it into her, and she listened to it and just heard the story about my side of the story of how we met, she loved it,” he continued. “So it’ll be cool coming together.”

While the country singer is busy putting together the upcoming album, he is also making time to give back to his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Brown recently partnered with Lowe’s, where he was once a customer service associate before his music career took off, for the company’s “100 Hometowns” initiative.

The company is committing $10 million to 100 impact projects in 2021.

People can nominate a hometown in the U.S. in need of restoration, and 100 grants will be given out by the company in June for the projects.

“Giving back to Chattanooga is just important to me because it’s my hometown — I feel like they gave me everything,” he said. “They taught me and brought me up — just going through everything that I went through here and the people that I met. I just love to give back to people, so who better to give back to than my hometown.”

For Brown’s impact project, he will be working to fix up the East Lake Boys & Girls Club in the area. The singer has worked with The Boys & Girls Clubs for several years, and holds the organization close to his heart.

He previously held a meet-and-greet with members and said he loved getting to know the kids during the experience.

“I would just kind of talk to them about how I was raised, brought up, and a lot of them had similar stories, or even worse case stories that I heard, and it was just awesome just to see smiles on the kids faces,” he shared.

Brown has been open in the past on his struggles growing up — homelessness being one of them — so he is determined to use his platform now to give back to those in need.

“I feel super blessed to not have had, you know, just the best life growing up as a kid because I feel like if I did — and then now I’m at where I’m at today, I wouldn’t have the heart that I do to reach out to other people,” he said.
