Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter and five times American Music Award Winner Kane Brown today announced his upcoming international tour, the Drunk or Dreaming Tour. Brown’s Drunk or Dreaming International Tour will kick off Sept. 17 in Melbourne, Australia before continuing throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.K. and Europe. The Drunk or Dreaming Tour will feature a stop in Ottawa at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday, Dec. 1 and marks the first time Brown will tour Australia and New Zealand, as well as his long-awaited return to Canada and Europe.
The announcement came ahead of Brown’s upcoming hometown stadium show in Chattanooga, Tenn. on May 7 and hours before his new single, Like I Love Country Music comes out on Friday, May 6.
Named “the future of country music” (Billboard), Brown first broke onto the scene with the arrival of his self-titled, two times Platinum debut album (2016), where he became the first artist ever to lead all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously. His debut effort, Kane Brown, topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for 13 weeks and garnered seven times Platinum-certified hits Heaven and What Ifs – the fourth and seventh most-streamed country songs of all time (U.S. Nielsen Country On-Demand Streams chart). With the release of his follow up album Experiment (2018), Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top the Billboard 200. The Platinum certified album yielded three consecutive No. 1 multi-Platinum certified hits Lose It, Good As You and Homesick.
Following Experiment, Brown released his multi-song project Mixtape Vol. 1 which earned Brown an ACM Award nomination for Album of the Year (2021) and an ACM win for Video of the Year. A CMA, ACM, Billboard, AMA and People’s Choice Award nominee, Brown has collaborated with numerous artists including Grammy and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter H.E.R. (Blessed & Free), DJ Marshmello (two times Platinum One Thing Right), Khalid and Swae Lee (Platinum Be Like That), blackbear (Memory), Nelly (Platinum Cool Again), John Legend (Last Time I Say Sorry), Camila Cabello (Never Be The Same Remix), Brooks & Dunn (Believe, the super duo’s Reboot album) and Becky G. (Lost In The Middle Of Nowhere Spanish Remix).
Brown’s most recent collaboration, Famous Friends with Chris Young, became Billboard’s 2021 year-end No. 1 Country Airplay Song and earned a CMT Award for Collaborative Video of the Year. Recently named as one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, Kane Brown has ascended from social media notability to become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays with seven chart-topping No. 1 singles to his name, including his latest hit, One Mississippi. Written by Brown, Matt McGinn, Taylor Phillips, and Jordan Schmidt Brown’s new single Like I Love Country Music is available on Friday, May 6 and, along with One Mississippi is part of Brown’s upcoming new album expected later this year.
