Kane Brown the singer, the awards-show host – the actor? He’s already crushed it doing the first two – and now fans will get to see how he does as an actor.
“Acting has been a life-long dream of mine, and to make my debut on a hit series like “Fire Country” is such an honor,” Brown said in a statement. Obviously we’ve seen the young superstar rock the stage for years; he’s co-hosted – and will again – the CMT Music Awards with Kelsea Ballerini on April 2. But five days later, we’ll see how he does playing someone other than himself.
On the April 7 episode of the CBS show “Fire Country”, Brown plays the character of Robin, an “enigmatic, modern-day train hopper” who helps injured train patients at a crash scene. He adds that the character is someone who he is “excited for people to meet.”
Series creator and star Max Theriot says, “As soon as Kane stepped onto set, it felt like he had been a part of the “Fire Country” family from the beginning. I was really blown away by how natural and honest he is in each scene. To top it off, he’s just a wonderful person – kind, excited to learn, and fun to be around… dude is the real deal!” So, career goal achieved. Whether it’s a one-time deal like George Strait in “Pure Country,” or a frequent side-hustle like it is for Tim McGraw remains to be seen.
