Kane Brown to Speak at Congressional Briefing in Washington, D.C.


When he was only a child, country singer Kane Brown and his mother had to make the choice of making their rent or buying food. Now, Brown is sharing his experience of his hardship growing up on Capitol Hill. On September 12, the singer will head to Washington, D.C., to participate in a congressional briefing on the rental-housing crisis in the United States.

Brown will join Make Room, the country’s leading organization working to address the crisis, to help shine a light on the 11 million American households who struggle just to pay their rent. One in four renting families – including 9 million children – are forced every month to decide between paying rent or buying groceries.

Fans are encouraged to add their own stories to Brown’s message by uploading a video through the Make Room USA website.

Brown has been keeping busy over the summer opening for Jason Aldean on the They Don’t Know Tour. His current single, “What Ifs,” a duet with Lauren Alaina, has been of his biggest hits and reached the Top 5 on the Hot Country Songs Chart. He will be performing in Northeast Ohio for the Guitars For Girls benefit concert at the Hoke Theatre at the Stocker Arts Center at Lorain Community College on Wednesday, October 11 at 7pm. Tickets are $35 and are available at
