Kane Brown Shuts Down ACM Awards Stage With “Bury Me In Georgia” Performance


Kane Brown rocked the awards show stage once again Thursday night (May 11), this time for the ACM Awards.

Just last month Kane’s wife Katelyn made her awards show debut alongside her husband for the CMT Music Awards where the pair performed their duet, “Thank God.”

“Thank God” is the first collaboration for the couple who are up for Single of the Year, Visual Media of the Year, and Music Event of the Year honors. In addition, Kane is in the running for two of the night’s biggest awards; Entertainer of the Year and Male Artist of the Year.

This time Kane performed alone at the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas, for the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards. Katelyn watched from the audience as Kane sang “Bury Me in Georgia.”

The song was co-written by Brown, Josh Hoge, Matt McGinn, and Jordan Schmidt, and appears on his latest album, Different Man. A nod to Brown’s home state, and is the follow-up release to “Thank God.”

“‘Bury Me In Georgia’ just a song, you know, about the home state that I grew up in,” Brown says. “That’s where I want to go whenever it’s my time. Especially the Georgia Bulldogs, they on top of it right now about three-peat so anyway, no, Georgia is just, you know, it’s always gonna place in my heart.”
