Kane Brown Only Got to Hear His First Single on the Radio Once
Kane Brown only ever heard his first single, “Used to Love You Sober,” once on the radio. The song, released in October of 2015, appears on his Chapter 1 EP and has been certified platinum, but it didn't make it too far up the charts: to No. 15 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and to No. 35 on the Country Airplay chart.
Below, Brown shares what he remembers about hearing "Used to Love You Sober" on the radio for the first -- and only -- time.
The first time I heard myself on the radio, I was going to a writing session. “Used to Love You Sober,” when I first got to Nashville, came on the radio, and that was the literally the only time I heard it.
But [my single] “What Ifs,” I hear it every time I turn on the radio. It’s a good a feeling, especially coming from that one time I heard “Used to Love You Sober” to every time I get in the car and turn on the radio, I hear it.
I didn’t like [hearing myself on the radio] at first, but I do now. I’ll turn it up and jam in my head, but I don’t sing it.
