Kane Brown Teases New Music: Making 'Bangers' and Ignoring 'the Doubters' (Exclusive)

Brown did not offer a timeline for his next album but teased that fans can expect some 'crossover bangers.'

It's been two years since Kane Brown dropped his third album, Different Man, and the singer is now working towards his next. PopCulture.com had a chance to speak to Brown at a recent concert stop on his In The Air Tour, and he teased what fans can expect from his new music as well as explained that he's doing his best to ignore "the doubters" who criticize him for not being "country" enough.

Speaking exclusively to Pop Culture, Brown confessed that it's "always scary" when he begins prepping new music "because I look at the bad comments. I don't look at any good comments." Brown went on to say, "I want to show the doubters how country my music can be, but then I just get these crossover bangers, and I'm like, 'I got to put this on the album.'"

The singer then very candidly explained, "Honestly, those songs do better for me. Like my songs that aren't the most country are my biggest songs." While he admitted that "it gets hard" to deal with the online trolls who post negative comments, Brown also noted that these keyboard complainers are "not listening to me anyway, so why should I care about them?"

Brown has already teased that he has a song on the way with masked electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello — whom he worked with on "One Thing Right" — and recently dropped two different songs: "Fiddle in the Band" and "The One (Pero No Como Yo)" with Mexican singer-songwriter Carín León.

In addition to touring and working on new music, Brown has also teamed up with Crown Royal for the "That Deserves a Crown with Kane Brown" contest. Crown Royal is inviting country music and whisky fans 21+ to nominate a veteran for a chance to win the ultimate concert experience at Brown's final tour stop in Arlington, Texas, on Sept. 14.
