Kane Brown’s “Used To Love You Sober” Erupts on iTunes Sales Chart

Over the past several months, fanfare has been developing behind independent country artist Kane Brown.

On October 21, the combination of that fanfare and a “World First” spotlight during Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show combined to facilitate a major splash on iTunes.

His new single “Used To Love You Sober” quickly began soaring up the iTunes single sales charts. As of press time, it is the #2 single on the all-genre chart (behind only Drake’s red-hot “Hotline Bling”) and the #1 single within the country genre.

The excitement is also evident on the iTunes album chart, where his recently released “Closer” EP is #12.

Notable about the success is that October 21, 2015 also marked Brown’s 22nd birthday.
