Meet Chattanooga's Kane Brown

Could he be the next big country star?

Social media has made Kane Brown a music sensation.
photo Kane Brown is an unsigned local country singer whose music has attracted thousands of fans online in just a few weeks.

Kane Brown's voice sounds like charcoal-filtered molasses. Deep and rich and rarely in a hurry.

Over the phone, he calmly listens to the next question and takes his time, delivering his answers in a measured, deliberate drawl. He also says, "Nah, man, you're good," a lot.

His laidback demeanor seems at odds with all that is happening around the country singer, and it is all happening in a very short time. Brown turns 22 on Wednesday, the same day that his newest single, "Used to Love You Sober," drops on iTunes.
