The Music Business Association will recognize platinum-selling country artist Kane Brown with its Breakthrough Artist Award at the Music Biz 2019 Conference’s Awards & Hall of Fame dinner on May 7 at the JW Marriott Nashville.
The award is presented to artists who have had a significant impact on the music scene in the past year, and who are poised to propel to new heights. He joins fellow breakthrough honoree Bebe Rexha. Last year’s recipient was Julia Michaels.
“With a sound uniquely his own, Kane Brown blends traditional southern musicianship with youthful, contemporary lyrics that distinguish him as a driving force in the revitalization of country music,” says Music Biz president James Donio. “Kane has already achieved so much at the age of 25, and with his Kane Brown: Live Forever Tour kicking off in the new year, there’s no sign of him stopping any time soon.”
