"Coming from my first album, I still not accepted by Nashville," starred star Kane Brown to Apple Music shortly before releasing his second LP, Experiment . "So for this album, it was like a new shot."
In a genre that was sometimes criticized as conservative, Brown stood from the beginning. Yes, he saw different heavily tattooed rocking diamond thirsts, mixed race on a predominantly white scene ̵
But Brown's image and career path has concealed the fact that when he comes to his actual music, he does not cast out today's conventions in the country – he fetches them. He has a warm, deep voice in the classic Nashville mold, and he and his talented band favors a pure mix of country and classical rock, with banjoes that sit comfortably with electric guitar and heavy drums; album opener "Baby Come Back to Me" even borrows college dummies from Queen's "We Will Rock You." Like his self-employed freshman album, it's hard to hip-hop and R & B watch the hi-hats on "American Bad Dream" or Mint Condition-esque bands hit "Weekend" – but these songs are undeniable. Brown may have started as a Nashville outsiders, but he is home.
