Kane Brown Reveals He Had a “Vision” for His New Single, “Homesick” [Listen]

After topping the charts with his fourth consecutive No. 1 single, “Good as You,” in May, Kane Brown will try to make it five in a row with the release of “Homesick.”

Penned by Kane, Brock Berryhill, Matthew McGinn and Taylor Phillips, “Homesick” is featured on his 2018 album, Experiment, and will impact country radio on Aug. 5.

“‘Homesick’ is just kinda personal because we’ve done so many shows in the last couple of years, and I’m never home,” says Kane. “I miss my dogs, I miss my family and my friends. I had it tattooed on me already, so it kinda made sense [as the next single].”

Kane dropped a heartwarming video for the new single, which features footage of servicemen and women reuniting with their families after deployment. Kane dedicated the video to “the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.”

“We just started writing and it was just so real and so personal,” says Kane. “After we wrote it, I listened to it on the way home from the bus, it was like 6 a.m. I fell asleep listening to it, and I woke up, and I just had this vision. I was like, I feel like the military could really relate to this song because they’re never home. And you see all these videos of people coming back and the dogs are excited whenever their soldier comes home and all that stuff, so I was like, this is perfect.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
