FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Encore Live presents Kane Brown as the latest music star to join the lineup of 2020’s most exciting, must-see concert series. Dubbed “the future of country,” Brown will air his brand-new, never-before-seen show for one night only on September 26 at drive-in and outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada as part of the massively popular Encore Drive-In Nights series.
“We are so humbled by fans’ response to Encore Drive-In Nights following the recent success of our Metallica and Blake Shelton events,” said Walter Kinzie, CEO of Encore Live. “We are excited that Kane Brown, who is such a great artist, has joined our initiative. Our team has been working incredibly hard to provide people with fun and safe enjoyment this year and so far we’ve entertained more than 730,000 fans all over North America. Kane’s upcoming show is further proof that people are really into the drive-in concert experience.”
Since his debut, Brown has quickly established himself as one of the world’s top country music artists and has helped shift the perception of the genre. He ascended to one of the industry’s biggest country stars, becoming the first artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts simultaneously and topping the all-genre Billboard 200 chart with his album Experiment. As a follow up to the critically-acclaimed album Experiment, Brown recently released a seven-song EP called Mixtape Vol. 1 that includes popular collaborations "Be Like That" ft. Khalid and Swae Lee and “Last Time I Say Sorry,” the song Brown co-wrote with EGOT winner John Legend. The September 26 concert was recorded live and professionally edited to provide fans with a high-quality, thrilling and intimate front-row experience with the chart-topping artist, featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes storytelling and more.

About Kane Brown
Global entertainer Kane Brown has been called “the future of country” (Billboard), “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in 2018 (Associated Press) and one of “31 People Changing the South” (Time). With the chart-topping Billboard 200 release of his Platinum album Experiment in Nov. 2018, Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top of this chart. Brown made history with his 2X Platinum self-titled debut album, a 13-week No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. He became the first artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts simultaneously with his breakthrough No. 1 Top Country Album; No. 1 debuting Country Digital Song, the 5X Platinum “Heaven,” and No. 1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the 5X Platinum “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina. Of all the country artists who made their long-form debut since 2016, Brown is the only one to receive two or more Platinum album certifications. The ACM, AMA, People’s Choice, Billboard, AMA, iHeartRadio, CMT and Billboard Music Awards nominated artist is one of only five country acts with multiple 5X Platinum hits (joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift). His two 5X Platinum songs are “Heaven” and “What Ifs” which, respectively, are the No. 3 and No. 5 most-streamed country tracks of all time – making him the only artist to have two tracks in the Top 5 of country’s most-streamed songs.
