Kane Brown hits Hollywood for an energetic New Year’s Eve performance Instagram/@leslye.xo

At just 24 years old, we expect Kane Brown to have a lot of energy, but we aren’t sure even we would expect him to travel from Los Angeles where he rang in the new year on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” back to Nashville to watch the Rose Bowl with his buddies.

He did though! And boy did that west coast crowd love him!

Kane really did Nashville proud, reppin’ country music on the Hollywood installment of “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve.” Even though it appears he only got to sing one song, “What Ifs,” he made a big impact with the crowd that also came out to enjoy Florida Georgia Line, Kelly Clarkson, Bebe Rexha and more. In fact, when he stopped singing and threw it to the audience, they delivered big time belting out “last first kiss” at the top of their lungs.

We aren’t sure if Kane then caught the red-eye back to Nashville or if flew in early in the morning, but he managed to make it out to fellow Georgia boy Jason Aldean’s home in the country by kickoff of the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. And he wasn’t the only one! Fellow Bulldog fans Tyler Farr and Dee Jay Silver were also there enjoying the game and Kane managed to capture a few of them in one quick video.

Of course, Georgia won their game against Oklahoma, which means they’ll be facing off with Alabama’s Crimson Tide in the national championship game on Jan. 8. And since Kane doesn’t start touring again until a few days later, he’ll be able to enjoy the playoff in either Atlanta or Nashville.

Then on Jan. 11, Kane joins his good friend Chris Young on the “Losing Sleep Tour,” which is currently showing dates into May. He’s also scheduled to perform at some of the biggest music festivals in the U.S. in 2018, including California’s Stagecoach Music Festival in April, Country Fest in Wisconsin in June and Fort Loramie’s Country Concert in July.

We imagine Kane will also spend a few days in Nashville this year helping his fiancée, Katelyn, plan their upcoming nuptials. The couple hasn’t shared many details of their big day yet, but Kane did tell Rare Country that they are planning a fall wedding and he has high hopes that his buddy and football party host, Jason Aldean, may pop in and sing a song or two at the reception.

With his incredible circle of musical friends, though, we expect that Kane and Katelyn’s wedding could turn into one of the most coveted concerts in country music this year.
