Kane Brown may be one of the newer faces on the country scene, but he is already dominating. The 24-year-old singer recently landed his first No. 1 single on both the Country Airplay and the Top Country Songs chart with his Lauren Alaina collaboration “What Ifs” — and those aren’t the only charts Brown has topped.
The Georgia native managed to simultaneously crown five charts in October: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs. If that’s not already impressive enough, the feat marked the first time an artist ever reigned simultaneously on five of Billboard‘s main country charts — subsequently earning Brown a Guinness World Record.
Clearly Kane is doing what he was meant to with his life, but if he weren’t a country singer, what other Guinness World Record does he think he’d set? “The best Xbox gamer ever,” he tells Billboard.
Brown answered some other fun questions for Billboard ahead of his highly anticipated performance at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards on April 15, where “What Ifs” will could be named the vocal event of the year. Along with sharing the most country thing he’s ever done and humming a snippet of Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” Brown also shares the stories behind his two most meaningful tattoos.
“The tattoo that means the most to me would probably be my Chinese symbol on my neck, it means love — I got it on Mother’s Day,” he explains. “Or my music notes, because it kept me out of the army, and I get to do music. I feel like everything happens for a reason.”
Watch Brown’s full video above, and be sure to catch him on the ACMs when they broadcast live from Las Vegas on April 15 at 8 p.m. ET.
