Brad Paisley Welcomes Kane Brown for Rousing 'Heaven South' Performance at 2017 CMAs

Brad Paisley co-hosted the 2017 CMAs, but that didn't mean he couldn't duck out on that gig and bust out a song of his own. Late in the show, the country superstar took the stage for a performance of "Heaven South," the lead track from his 2017 album Love and War. 

About a minute into the song, Paisley welcomed newcomer 24-year old Kane Brown to share the spotlight. Brown, who released his self-titled debut album last year, aptly took on vocal duties alongside Paisley for the rest of the song.
