8:00 PM COUNTRY MUSIC CONCERT EVENT!!
Featuring singer-songwriter country music artist

KANE BROWN

Presenting yet another career launch pad for a remarkably talented artist, the Wayne County Fair is proud to bring the music of Kane Brown to fair visitors. His ground-breaking approach to the music business is quickly making the Georgia-raised singer and songwriter one of the breakout stars of the next generation of country music.

Developing his own mix of social media videos of originals and country covers (averaging over 5 million views each), he’s grown his following from zero to over 1.7 million active and engaged fans on Facebook and on Instagram over 2 million. He recently added Twitter to the mix which hit 77,000 followers in no time and continues to grow.

In 2014, Kane crowdfunded his debut EP Closer. The EP was released on iTunes on June 2, 2015 where it charted at #11. His online popularity continued to surge and in October, 2015 released “Used to Love You Sober” on iTunes reaching #1 on the country singles chart and #2 overall. Two more singles you may recognize are “Last Minute Late Night” and “Love That I Hate You,” both of which went #1 on iTunes Country Chart. In November 2015 his first United States headline tour was sold out. RCA imprint of Sony Nashville just signed him in January 2016. His fans are with him every step of the way from ticket sales, single sales, Kickstarter and especially on social media. Join them all at the fair on August 6! Get your tickets early – this is going to be one to remember!
