Kane Brown Makes Time’s List of the 100 Most Influential People in the World

Kane Brown has been named to the 2021 TIME100TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The list, selected by editors and now in its eighteenth year, recognizes the impact, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals.

The profile piece honoring Kane was written by fellow country star Darius Rucker.

Darius writes, “When it comes to his music, he can do that low, cool, borderline-rapping thing, and then he sings and his vocal ability just blows you away.”

Darius also says, “I’m sure there are kids looking up to Kane right now just like when I looked up at Charley Pride.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
