Have you ever wondered what the net worth of Kane Brown is? Well, the American singer is generating noise in the music industry and is worth a fortune. He rose to prominence in 2015, with the release of his first EP, Closer. Since then he has been on the rise and building a strong following. As of June 2022, Kane Brown has a net worth of $8 million. This post will guide you on his journey to success.
Brown was born October 21, 1993, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His mother, Tabatha Brown is white American, and his father is African American, and also part Cherokee.
He was raised by his mother because his father had been incarcerated since 1996. This caused confusion for Brown growing up. Although he is multiracial, he grew up around his mother and her family, and never saw his dad’s side. He recalls that when he was very young he assumed he was 100% white.
It wasn’t until he was around 8 years old he found out he was biracial. Around the same time he experienced bullying and was called racial slurs by his classmates.
His mother struggled to support them. They often moved around and at times were homeless. Brown bounced around from school to school but ultimately graduated from Soddy Daisy Highschool.
Brown had always been interested in country music, but it wasn’t until the 11th grade that he started to experiment with making music and doing cover songs. He entered the school’s talent show and performed Chris Youngs Getting You Home.
The performance was well-received by his friends, and they urged him to audition for The X Factor. He was chosen as a participant but left the show after the producers wanted him to join a boy band.
After the departure, he decided to dedicate himself to music and began posting covers to popular songs on social media. This would be the start of his career as an independent artist.
Brown’s homemade cover videos began to gain popularity on Facebook, his cover of George Straits’ Check Yes or No was the first of many to go viral, earning over 7 million views.
His following boomed, and he reached a million soon after the release. Brown would capitalize on his popularity, and began making his own music hoping to receive the same notoriety.
Brown would go on to sign a record deal with Zone 4 and focused on the release of his first project. In 2014, he began recording his six song EP in Nashville Tennessee out of his home studio. After a year of hard work, he released the EP, Closer and the project debuted at number 22 on the Top Country Album chart.
Following the success, Brown signed with a more prominent label, Sony Music Nashville. Under the new label, he would release his second EP, Chapter 1. This EP featured hit single Used To Love You Sober, and the project debuted at number three on the Top Country Albums chart.
Brown was already one of the biggest country stars in the country and he hadn’t even released a full project yet!
In December 2016, he would change that with the release of Kane Brown. The album debuted at number 1 on the U.S Billboard 200. With single What Ifs becoming certified 5x platinum.
He has since released Experiement (2018) and his third EP Mixtape Vol 1(2020). Both had success on the chart and grew his following.
While Brown may not be as renowned as someone like Blake Shelton in the country music world, he is surely making a name for himself and his work has translated into wealth.
