Not to overlook Darius Rucker’s glorious contributions, but Kane Brown is the most successful African American in country music right now. And he’s not even one hunid percent African American. But it is all good from my perspective, because I feel that America is so hung up on race that there is actually a big discussion on what ethnicities can do what music. Enough. As I have stated, black folks have been doing county music, and will continue to do so, but as far as the mainstream is concerned, Kane Brown is the man who is breaking the most barriers in country music. I feel he has executed this surgical move because he ties his music to both pop and rnb wherever he can, and country almost takes a backdrop. I have been happy though to recognize that his rising career trajectory has been met with kindness from all communities, because I would hate for it to be the other way.
