The crowd at the recent Rare Country Awards went absolutely wild for Kane Brown, who fired up attendees with two amazing performances during the Awards’ first-ever live concert event. The show was held Dec. 14 at Acme Feed & Seed in downtown Nashville.

Kane took the stage to perform “Heaven,” as well as a solo version of his Rare Country Award-winning duet “What Ifs,” which he originally recorded with Lauren Alaina.

The crowd was singing right back to the Georgia native, who had a monumental year—snagging his first No. 1 hit and breaking a record by topping all five “Billboard” country charts at the same time!

If he looks like he’s right at home commanding the stage, it’s because he’s spent the better part of the year learning from the best—his pal Jason Aldean.

When Rare Country caught up with Kane on the hangout bus before he performed at the Awards, the singer told us he learned so much from spending time with Jason out on the road.

“I learned you gotta have fun. I used to look at it as a serious job and I used to get up there and worry about what everyone thinks,” he told us.

“He really just opened my eyes to ‘Do you. That’s your show, those people are coming to see you. Don’t care what they think and just have fun.’ If you have fun and love your job, then you’ll keep doing it as much as he’s doing it!”

That’s sound advice Kane got from one of the biggest entertainers in country music. And by the looks of these performances during the Rare Country Awards, it looks like he is definitely taking notes!
