Sony Music NashvilleAs the deluxe edition of Kane Brown’s self-titled debut album arrives in stores and online on Friday, the newcomer also is on the verge of having his very first #1.
“What Ifs,” his duet with Lauren Alaina, is a song he had a hand in writing.
“I had a title called ‘What Ifs’…” Kane recalls, “I feel like everybody always says ‘what if this, what if that.’ Even if you’re not in a relationship, there’s always this ‘what if’ question. So we just kinda put it in a relationship status.”
Once “What Ifs” was finished, Kane knew it only lacked one thing: a vocal from the American Idol runner-up who’s also his former schoolmate.
“After we wrote it, I asked Lauren…,” he remembers. “I’d been trying to get her on a song with me, so I asked her if she would come to the studio and record it. She was going to work out that night. I told her it would only take 15 minutes, and I made her late for her hot boxing class and she just came and she killed it.”
Kane Brown Deluxe adds four new songs to his original album.
