Kane Brown debuts strong, while Chris Young rises to stardom
Kane Brown is currently a man on fire. With his less-than-contemporary country music look and sound, he has broken typical country music traditions and paved his own way. Where artists in all genres know some of the challenges that stand in the way of breaking through to stardom, Kane Brown has faced the obstacle course and prevailed.
With the recent release of his newest album Chapter 1, Kane Brown is on a rocket ship to the next level of his music career.
For local artists, getting noticed is never an easy task, and getting signed to a major recording label/recording studio is just plain difficult. Kane Brown put his heart and soul on the line, followed his dreams, and got signed by the major Nashville record label RCA.
After recently reaching number one on the iTunes country music chart, it seems as if “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now” is the unofficial country music song of the summer. It has a feel good sound to it that will make people want to kick off their shoes, roll the windows down, and go cruise on down some back roads.
“Used to Love You Sober” is a really down-to-earth song that is quickly climbing the charts, there is an excellent music video to accompany it. “Wide Open” is a song that talks about the passions of love and falling for a wildflower; it really demonstrates Kane’s powerful vocals.
Kane Brown has a solid gold singing voice, his style is uninfluenced by any outside source, and he makes phenomenal music. Chapter 1 is a well put together masterpiece. Regardless of musical preference, any music fan that likes great music with heart and soul will enjoy the album.
I’m Comin' Over
With a whole lot of hard work, talent, and blessings along the way, Murfreesboro native Chris Young has shown the world that it is possible for local musicians to break through to the other side. He has been tearing up the charts since he won the USA Network television program Nashville Star in 2006.
Under the Nashville music label RCA, he has produced many successful albums while managing to stay true to his contemporary country music sound, and has had numerous songs reach the top of the charts. With the release of his newest album I’m Comin’ Over, Chris Young has shifted from a rising Nashville Star to a country music powerhouse.
I’m Comin’ Over is a sensational album that only could come from an artist that was in their prime. The now seasoned Nashville artist just keeps getting better with time. Where some artists often hit a slope at a certain point in their career, Chris Young took the opposite path and accelerated it to another level.
After gaining a Grammy nomination for the title track, “I’m Comin’ Over” was destined to be a hit from the moment it was released, however, it does not stand alone as the only significant song on the album. “Think of You”, a duet with Cassadee Pope, was also a country music chart topper, and the whole album is magnificent from start to finish. Other songs that stand out are “What if I Stay”, “Alone Tonight”, and “Sunshine Overtime”.
Chris Young is obviously no stranger to heartbreak, and he portrays his understanding of the subject in a very personal and beautiful way. His music is very heartfelt, and his voice is magical. I’m Comin’ Over is highly recommended and a staple for any music collection.
