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.
